Mormeck To Klitschko: I'm No Mike Tyson, Good PR Stunt

Former cruiserweight champion Jean Marc Mormeck (36-4, 22KOs) had a good laugh when he heard Wladimir Klitschko compared him to heavyweight great Mike Tyson. Although the two of them are similar in size, Mormeck is realistic and doesn't believe the comparison fits.

"I'm not Mike Tyson, though sometimes it's a good PR stunt. I have neither the explosiveness nor the punch," said Mormeck.

On Saturday night in Duesseldorf, Mormeck will challenge Klitschko for the IBO/WBO/WBA/IBF titles. Klitschko is 6 1/2 inches taller, four years younger, has a 7-inch reach advantage and won his last 14 fights.

Mormeck admits that most people don't give him a shot at lasting five rounds, let alone winning.

"I can imagine what the odds will look like for me against Wladimir Klitschko," Mormeck said. "But I know my skills. I had [David] Haye on the canvas and shortly before a knock out which Klitschko could not do. What I missed out against Haye I will now do with him."

[QUOTE=Jim Jeffries]It is kinda interesting that Mormeck was able to do something Wlad couldn't, floor David Haye.[/QUOTE] Wlad didn't need to, David threw himself down enough times! :lol1:

[QUOTE=DontGlassMeBro]wow mormeck is a moron. "I don't have the explosiveness nor the punch of Tyson" way to make yourself sound like the ready-to-be-KO'd bum you are[/QUOTE] I respect him more for saying that than just going along with such patent nonsense to big up the fight.

[QUOTE=KnockUTheFukOut]lol somebody compared him to Tyson? hahaha[/QUOTE] Not "somebody". Wladimir Klitschko himself.
