Wladimir Klitschko Demolishes Mormeck in Four Rounds

By Alexey Sukachev

ESPRIT arena, Düsseldorf, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany - Wladimir Klitschko (57-3, 50KOs) demolished former cruiserweight king Jean Marc Mormeck (36-5, 22KOs) in four one-sided rounds to retain the WBA/IBO/IBF/WBO heavyweight titles.

Mormeck, IBF #9 and WBA/WBO #10, had virtually no shot against the giant Ukrainian since the moment he signed the contract. At 39-years-old, he was much shorter than Wladimir, 12 pounds lighter, and four years older.

From the starting bell, he crouched down and moved forward with his head dangerously low, thus making himself a much smaller target. However, Wladimir wisely kept him at firing range with his power jab. There were many clinches in the first round, as Mormeck held and hugged Wladimir at almost every possible moment on the inside. Mormeck landed no punches in the opening stanza, while eating a couple of thudding shots.

The first half of the second was almost similar - too many clinches - but then Wladimir threw a huge one-two, and Momeck went down heavily. He beat the count but was very lucky to survive until the bell. Round three was more quiet, as Wladimir took his time to toy with the Frenchman. It didn't last long though.

Early into the fourth, the champion met his opponent in the center of the ring and landed a consecutive left jab, right hand and a left hook to send the challenger down hard, as French movie stars Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Renault looked on. Mormeck barely beat the count, but referee Luis Pabon waved the fight off at 1:12 of the round, as Frenchman's legs were too unstable.

Mormeck did a pretty good show that night, had he not been caught by 2 lucky shots in rds 2 and 4, he would've brought Wlad into serious trouble. Time for a rematch if you ask me!

totally agree that the HW division has been DOA for years -- when we're staring at the likes of Arreola (a glorified B level guy) and Haye (a total joke and a fraud) again against a K bro, that says…

I'm glad that k.o. came when it did because that fight was getting really boring with all that clinching.

I dont see how anyone can be a fan of this division at the moment, it's a disgraceful joke. You have 2 huge, slow, boring robots sitting pretty on top of a steaming pile of horse ****. HW boxing is…
