Wladimir Klitschko has been the heavyweight champ since 2006, and he isn't about to hand the title over to anyone. Jean-Marc Mormeck is striving to join an elite class, but Klitschko will easily take care of him on Saturday. 

Mormeck is hoping to become the third fighter to ever to win the cruiserweight title and the heavyweight title. Evander Holyfield and David Haye are the only ones who have achieved this before. 

With a chance to accomplish such an amazing feat, no doubt Mormeck will be highly motivated to pull off the upset. 

However, Klitschko is just too good. The 35-year-old Ukranian throws ridiculously hard punches, and his experience in the ring will help lift him over Mormeck. 

At 56-3, Klitschko, also known as "Dr. Steelhammer," hasn't lost a boxing match since 2004.Two of his last three wins game by way of a knockout, and it wouldn't be all that surprising to see one occur this Saturday. 

If he does win with a knockout punch, it will be the 50th career knockout victory for Klitschko. That alone is enough motivation for Klitschko to win in impressive fashion. Of course, defending his title belt and maintaining his dominant status in the boxing world is also an incentive to win. 

Mormeck, also known as "The Marksman," will put up a good fight, don't get me wrong. Unfortunately for the Frenchman, Klitschko will hammer down and crush him in the later rounds.
