Mormeck Plans To Check Wladimir's Chin: He's Fragile!

By Mel "Sabaka" Ohlhoft

Former cruiserweight king Jean Marc Mormeck (36-4, 22KOs) has a lot of respect for WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko. The same can't be said for his younger brother, WBO/IBO/IBF/WBA champion Wladimir Klitschko (56-3, 49KOs). Mormeck is reportedly the frontrunner to face Wladimir on December 10th, with the fight happening in either Germany or France.

Mormeck, 39-years-old and inactive since December 2010, admits that he would have to think twice before signing a contract to face Vitali, but he would run at the opportunity to get Wladimir in the ring.

"[Wladimir] is fragile, he can't take punches. I would have ask myself a lot of questions before signing [a contract] to face his older brother, but I would throw myself at the first opportunity to step into the ring against [Wladimir]," Mormeck said.

[QUOTE=Grinderman;11130264][B]I liked the idea of Wach but got shouted down by some of the experts on here.[/B] I still think he's a better choice than Mormeck. NOBODY is ready to fight either Klitschko. They are the most avoided champions in…

Anybody against the K brothers is a mismatch right now but a short, blown-up cruiserweight like Mormeck shouldn't last more than a few rounds. And Tarver? He might last the distance but no way he makes a dent on either…
