Klitschko Defends Mormeck As An Opponent

Some people have been giving Wladimir Klitschko criticism for selecting Jean Marc Mormeck as a title defense and Wladimir had this to say awhile back about Mormeck as an opponent on December 10th at the ESPRIT Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany.

"Mormeck is one of the most experienced that I've ever had.  During his career he won many championship fights, he is technically strong, has excellent boxing skills, and he's a very intelligent fighter. To underestimate him would be fatal."

I think this is a good voluntary defense. He is not just sitting idle but is deciding to stay active and there is nothing wrong with fighting a ranked opponent and former cruiserweight champion. Yes, Haye beat him but Mormeck gave him troubles in that fight and who knows what might have happened if they had a  rematch. He's not won overly impressively at heavyweight but has won none-the-less and I'm looking forward to the fight on December 10th.
