Klitschko-Mormeck: The Trainers Prediction Roundtable

by David P. Greisman

Henry Ramirez (Klitschko): “Obviously Klitschko. Wladimir, he won like 14 in a row, barely lost any rounds. Obviously he’s superior in every area: better puncher, better technician, much bigger. Big heavyweight. Mormeck’s 39, 40 years old. He’s a former cruiserweight. To be honest, he shouldn’t even be getting the fight, but hey, Klitschko’s taking a voluntary defense. I don’t see it going past five or six rounds.”

Ronnie Shields (Klitschko): “You know, I haven’t seen Mormeck fight in years, since he was [cruiserweight] champion at one time. I haven’t seen him, but I think Klitschko is just going to be too big for him anyway. Klitschko’s going to be too big. The jab is too good. He’s too strong. So I predict [a Klitschko win] within five rounds.”

Eddie Mustafa Muhammad (Klitschko): Klitschko. He’ll probably stop him in the middle rounds. The Klitschkos are bigger, physical guys. Mormeck, he got stopped as a cruiserweight. I just can’t see him — I mean, the size alone, the reach and the overall skills.”

John Scully (Klitschko): “I can't see Klitschko losing that. I can't see him not winning by stoppage. The other guy’s just probably too old, too small, just too minus everything. He’s got no real obvious upside in this particular fight.”

Sam Garcia (Klitschko): “Klitschko. I don’t see anybody at heavyweight really beating either Klitschko as long as they’re on their game. Everyone has a chance, and if Mormeck has a game plan, but for the most part the Klitschkos are just too big and too strong. Most of all, they understand how to box more than anything. They understand what the jab is for, and they use it. As many times as they get criticized, they refuse to fall into the realm of what other people think. They understand that their educated jab is what’s going to be their money, and it sets everything up. Klitschko by KO, I’d say like in the eighth round.”

these predictions are fun when somebody goes out of the way, and predicts something different.
