On December 10, it will be Jean-Marc Mormeck (France) to challenge IBF/WBA/IBO/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko. Both fighters had a first encounter in the ESPRIT arena, Düsseldorf (Germany) on Wednesday, nearly 8 weeks before their highly anticipated clash.
Former WBA/WBC cruiserweight champion Mormeck appeared very confident and said he knew how to beat Klitschko. “I have overcome every challenge I have set myself in the past. I have tried to win every championship belt in the past and now I have the chance to get them. I am strong enough to do it, I am a warrior in the ring,” he said.
The youngest of the Klitschko brothers will be returning to the ring for the first time since his dominating win against Britain’s David Haye in their unification fight in Hamburg in July. “I don’t want to give him any chance, I want to destroy him”, said Klitschko of his opponent. “I might have a glass jaw, but I will knock you out before you even touch it,” he added in response to claims made by Mormeck recently.
The fight will be broadcast live on RTL in Germany and also shown in 120 countries worldwide. Tickets are available on www.eventim.de and +49- (0)1805 – 12 13 14 with prices starting from 20 Euro.
