Mormeck: Wladimir cannot stand punches; he has a glass chin

Klitschko Mormeck Klitschko vs. Mormeck  wladimir klitschko jean marc mormeck By Eric Thomas: Jean Marc Mormeck (36-4, 22 KO’s) is giving himself a good chance of defeating heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (56-3, 49 KO’s) tonight and taking his IBF/WBA/WBO titles in their fight in front of 50,000 fans at the Esprit Arena in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Klitschko Mormeck Klitschko vs. Mormeck  wladimir klitschko jean marc mormeck By Sean McDaniel: In watching IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (56-3, 49 KO’s) during his media workout one couldn’t help noticing that he’s throwing a lot of short uppercuts along with jabs to get himself ready for his fight against Jean Marco Mormeck (36-4, 22 KO’s) on Saturday night in Dusseldorf, Germany.
