V. Klitschko Expects Competitive Mormeck With Wladimir

By Ruslan Chikov

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (56-3, 49KOs) feels his younger brother's upcoming fight will be competitive. WBO/WBA/IBO/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko will defend his belt against former cruiserweight champion Jean Marc Mormeck (36-4, 22KOs) on March 3rd in Germany. The bout was going to happen earlier this month, but Wladimir was forced to postpone after undergoing an emergency surgery to remove a kidney stone. The critics have attacked the fight, calling the fight a very bad "mismatch."

"The Frenchman is a very experienced fighter, and he clearly has the potential to challenge for the championship belt. So it is interesting to me. But we'll see what the end result is going to be between Mormeck and Wladimir. Let me remind you, the fight is not canceled and rescheduled for March 3. And I am pleased that the Frenchman reacted well and understood the situation where my brother had to seek the help of doctors. Of course Jean Marc and Wladimir were very upset with postponing their fight. After all, great efforts were spent on training. As far as I know, both of them are coming to the ring in perfect shape and we're going to certainly have [an] exciting [fight]. But whatever happened has happened and now we have to wait until March," vitali said.

Vitali is on his knees crying for a Haye bout, just like Wlad was. :nonono:

Let's remember that K2 are the promoters here, so he's hardly going to say "this is a total joke of a fight against a has been CW"....is he? They are quite cynical businessmen.
