Povetkin's Promoter: Boswell a Better Foe Than Mormeck

Wilfried Sauerland, promoter of WBA "regular" heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin doesn't understand why the king of the division, Wladimir Klitschko, is going to postpone a planned fight with Jean Marc Mormeck to a new date in 2012. After getting surgery to remove a kidney stone on Saturday, Wladimir withdrew from Saturday's scheduled defense with Mormeck. Wladimir is likely going to face the former cruiserweight champion on March 3rd. Sauerland states that Povetkin's opponent from last Saturday, Cedric Boswell, is a better opponent than Mormeck and he would probably beat the French fighter.

"I do not understand why they just didn't offer the same fight to Cedric Boswell, who in certain aspects is better than Mormeck. He is the weakest opponent for Klitschko in several years. The odds for this fight, I would have to say are 99 to 1 in favor of the Ukrainian," Sauerland told Alexander Pavlov.

[QUOTE=Tiozzo]Oliver McCall is a former champ too, would that make a fight between him and Wlad legit? Mormeck is old, his stamina is terrible now and he has lost to Oquendo and maybe Timur too Chisora, as unexperienced as he was, was a much better fight[/QUOTE] Come on man what was Oliv...

[QUOTE=Ravens Fan]I will agree that Mormeck is a bad choice that I surely don't agree with. But, as compared to Boswell as an opponent in any title fight there is no comparison. At least with Mormeck you have a former champ with a more than a couple title fights under his belt against some world ...

I'd like to see Wlad give Del Boy Chisora the fight he owes him, instead of Mormeck. It would be a much better fight.
