    This Saturday's biggest fight is the bout in Germany between world heavyweight champion and former cruiserweight world champion Jean Marc Mormeck, and while boxing fans and bookies see this one as a pretty disgusting mismatch, Klitschko is trying to sell the fight as best he can. From RingTV.com:

    "Mormeck is one of the most experienced fighters I have ever faced. He has had many world title fights, has very good technique, can take a punch and is very intelligent inside the ring," Klitschko told RingTV.com. "I will take any chance to knock him out."

    Mormeck (36-4, 22 KO) is also 5'10", 39 years old, and hasn't fought since December 2010. Klitschko (56-3, 49 KO) is a -5000 favorite right now, which is a ridiculous line for a "world heavyweight championship fight."

    But like our friend Corey Erdman says, you can't expect Wladimir to dis his opponent. He carries the air of a gentleman, for one thing, even though that seems debatable in a lot of ways, and he's promoting the fight, too. To crap on Mormeck as an opponent would be bad business, and purely disrespectful.

    But the fight sucks and there's no getting around it. Mormeck hasn't been good in years, and is a tiny, tiny heavyweight. There's just no way to shine up a fight between Klitschko and a guy who was knocked out by David Haye five years ago and barely defeated Fres Oquendo, Timur Ibragimov, and Vinny Maddalone as a heavyweight, all at home in France.

    Mormeck has less than "no chance" in this fight. There is literally nothing he should be able to do with Wladimir.
