EMANUEL STEWARD claims Wladimir Klitschko has a better one-punch knockout capability than Lennox Lewis.

The Ukrainian defends his IBF, WBA and WBO world heavyweight titles against Frenchman Jean-Marc Mormeck in Dusseldorf tonight ­looking for his 50th KO victim in his 60th fight.

Klitschko, 35, works behind his jab like Lewis did when he reigned as undisputed world heavyweight champion.

Lewis was also trained by Steward but the 67-year-old American believes ­Klitschko (right), who comfortably out-pointed David Haye last summer, is a ­better finisher with one punch.

He said: “Wlad has the best footwork, co-ordination and balance of any ­fighter I ever worked with. He’s the most ­accurate, single-punch knockout guy I have ever seen. A guy can be completely fine, not hurt, and Wladimir can put his lights out with one shot.

“Wladimir’s co-ordination is better and he is the most powerful natural talent than any other heavyweight I have worked with.

“In terms of jab, Wladimir is the best and after him I would put Lennox. Lewis was a more versatile fighter and he could ­completely restructure a fight. But in terms of boxing arsenal, Wladimir is better.”

Steward admits that Mormeck is not the most dangerous fighter ­Klitschko has faced and his problem is a lack of decent opponents.

[QUOTE=Kilrain]Manny Steward also once called Naseem Hamed the greatest featherweight of all time. All I'll say is, Lewis would've mauled David Haye while Wladimir couldn't put a dent in him through 12 dull rounds.[/QUOTE] the problem with wlad is he doesnt let his punches go enough which mak...

[QUOTE=polarcub]If you look at Wlad you are basically seeing a less slick, less shine, less dazzling, less powerful, less pretty, less sexy, less shiny, lesser version of Prime Lennox Lewis. EVERYTHING WLAD CAN DO, Lennox can do it better and in a slicker way. That's why MANNY GOT WLAD. It's l...
