Mormeck's Trainer: He Studied Tyson, He'll Beat Klitschko
By Ruslan Chikov
Kevin Rooney, Mike Tyson's former coach and the current coach of French heavyweight Jean-Marc Mormeck (36-4, 22KOs), has no doubt that his boxer is capable of beating IBO/WBO/WBA/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko (56-3, 49KOs) on March 3rd at ESPRIT arena in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Rooney says Mormeck studied tapes of Tyson, the former undisputed heavyweight king, to watch how the boxer was able to defeat much taller opponents.
"Americans are not happy with Klitschko, but mainly because they dislike the European style of boxing. On the other hand, Wladimir has an excellent jab that works well, he has a good right hand and therefore he's a very dangerous fighter," Rooney told Alexander Pavlov.
"Mormeck [will present a real challenge]. And do you know why? Because he studied and mastered the style of Mike Tyson during his best years. That is why we agreed to fight with Klitschko. I think he has the ability to beat Wladimir. I watch the heavyweight division and I know who's in it. Yes, all of the belts are in Europe. And frankly, I hope that they soon return to the States."

SMH!!!! LOL! The trainer is stupid as hell, his fighter mastered Tyson's style......OK! now mastering and having the ability to do those things is a whole different thing LOL! I highly doubt Mormeck has the speed, reflexes, foot speed, power,…Comment by vick_ramalot on 12-22-2011
