Wladimir Klitschko Not Looking Past The Mormeck Defense

Five-belt heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko says he will not be taking Jean Marc Mormeck lightly when they meet in Dusseldorf next Saturday night (December 10).

Klitschko returns to the ring for the first time since his points victory over David Haye in July, and all his belts will be on the line against Frenchman Mormeck.

The Ukrainian is expected to take his victory tally to 57 and is fast running out of legitimate contenders to his crown.

However, at 39-years-old, Mormeck has plenty of experience and Klitschko is being professional in his build-up, although there was still time for his renowned sarcastic wit.

He told Ringside: "All of the five titles that I have are going to be on the line on December 10th and I'm not going to underestimate Jean Marc Mormeck."

Somewhat sarcastically, he added: "Mormeck said: 'Wladimir, I'm going to be the first heavyweight champion in the history of France'. So I got a little bit worried and went straight the training camp and I'm getting ready for the fight.

"I am at my best, I'm 35 and that is one of the best times to be in the heavyweight division age wise.

" I enjoy the challenge that I get each time, it's always different.

"I will not underestimate Jean Marc. I will not overestimate him.

"I will do everything I have to in the ring and will defend all of my titles."

The fight will be live on Sky Sports HD1 on Saturday 10 December, with Amir Khan taking on America's Lamont Peterson on the same night.

Man, I am sitting on the edge of my seat, trying to make my hands stop trembling over the danger that Wladimir is in against Jean "Black Napoleon" Mormeck.

[QUOTE=ABOSWORTH;11503253]Wlad could win this fight with his right arm tied behind his back. Oh wait... How would that be different than any other of his fights?[/QUOTE] I honestly wouldnt be shocked if Wladimir pulled a Ray Austin on Mormeck and…

I'm looking past the Mormeck defense. Let's move on from this farce quickly and get him a better matchup.
