03/03/12 Wladimir Klitschko v Jean Marc Mormeck

It was inevitable,  Wladimir Klitschko retains his crown and solidifies his status as the best heavyweight in the world. To be fair Mormeck never came close and seemed to throw less punches than Harrison did against Haye, trying to work on the inside but was never allowed to stay there. As soon as Mormeck came close to try and work on the inside and throw punches up close, he was pulled away and asked to work from arms length. This was a technique that Klitschko is used to and was happy to fight from distance, working that infamous jab from the opening bell.  Mormeck on the other hand is a toe to toe fighter and was never allowed to fight his fight. The true professional of the sport now stands proud that he has joined the 50 knockouts club, but has this record been tarnished with the ongoing critisism that he will not fight outside germany or have officials handle the fight the way he wants them to. Klitschko would argue that he still has to do the hard work and beat the man standing infront of him, it just seems to be a little easier when the official favours his style of boxing and will not look at stripping him of any points if he bends the rules. (in refrence to the constant pushing down on Mormecks head and clentching)
We now look forward from this towards his next fight, rumours are now leaking that he will have to fight his brother Vitali or they will be stripped of thier titles. Dont really know if this would benifit the sport or not, i just think it would be nice to see one of them lose once in a while. It seems to have also been confirmed that the heavyweight match we all want, Povetkin v Klitschko will never happen as the 3 boxing bodys will never agree to have all the titles up for grabs in one fight. It would seem that nobody is avaliable to fight, hence why we keep getting weight mismatches from boxers stepping up from cruiserweight. I guess we just wait and see what happens in this less than great division right now, Seth Mitchell, David Price, Tyson Fury? One thing for sure it wont be David Haye because according to him, it has been confirmed he will be fighting Vitali Klitschko. And it certainly wont be Derrek Chisora.


  1. Don’t you think this will be a good one? the UFC Heavyweight Champion (Junior dos Santos Almeida) vs one of the Klitschko brothers
    There have to be rules were thy cant grab each other and only use there fist. I would pay to se this. I also think this will be a good for promoting boxing and ufc.

  2. if im honest, that would probably promote UFC more so than boxing, they do say styles make fights i suppose?
