Wlodarczyk vs Mormeck Now in Play For February 2nd
By Per Ake Persson
French press writes today that WBC cruiserweight champ Krzysztof Wlodarczyk, 47-2-1 has agreed to defend the title against veteran Jean Marc Mormeck, 36-5, age 40 and last seen getting knocked out by Wladimir Klitschko in March after a performance that left a lot to be desired.
Wlodarczyk vs Mormeck is tentatively set for February 2, 2013, with site to be announced.
At one time Mormeck held the WBC and WBA titles but lost both belts to David Haye in 2007 and retired, but returned in 2009 as a heavyweight and his own promoter. He went 3-0 in 09 and 10 and then waited for Klitschko throughout 2011 before getting his title fight in 2012.
Negotiations for the Wlodarczyk fight have been long and apparently complicated and Krzysztof´s promoter Andrew Wasilewski at first dismissed the offer to fight Mormeck as just hot air, but now it appears that the fight is on even though Mr. Wasilewski has yet to confirm it.
The fight everyone has beem waiting for has finally arrived! Seriously why is Mormeck still fighting? the guy was shot when Haye KO'd him like 5 years ago.Comment by Light_Speed on 12-06-2012

It would have been a pretty good fight 5 years ago, Mormeck being 40 and having to lose 15lb's of muscle i don't really want anything to do with it and don't care.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (8)
