One hard blow will be enough to beat heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, Frenchman Jean-Marc Mormeck said Monday.
Mormeck will challenge the 35-year-old Ukrainian for his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles in Duesseldorf, Germany on Dec. 10.
''I want his belts,'' Mormeck said. ''If I want to get them, I'll have to smash his face.''
''I've seen all his opponents, and when they get in the ring, I have the impression that they don't do what they need to do. They don't move forward. They don't take any risk.''
The former WBC and WBA cruiserweight champion was confident of landing a decisive punch against Klitschko.
''He has lost three fights and each time he lost them without going the distance,'' Mormeck said. ''He couldn't recover each time he got hit. That means he doesn't take those hits well.''
The 39-year-old Frenchman has won his three fights since moving up to the heavyweight division in 2009 and has a career record of 36 wins (22 knockouts) and four defeats.
