Mormeck would beat the version of Ali that Berbick fought. Mormeck would beat the 45 and older Holyfield and trouble him prime 4 prime, and at CW, prime for prime it would be a pick em if not for Mormecks soso chin.
FACT IS........Mormeck has 3 wins at HW and ZERO losses. 2 of his wins are vs top 25 world rated opposition and Maddalone is not scrub.
Mormeck vs Wlad might be a mismatch, but he's earned his payday moreso than Arreola, Dimitrenko, Boystov, Fury etc.
Only Helenius, Potvetkin, and Chamber/Thompson have more a right to a title fight than Mormeck.
Mormeck is 38 years old, and likely will NEVER beat another top 20 for a title shot...this is his last stand as a contender at any weight. He's not shot to shit, not brain damaged or damaged goods....I say give the man his 600K and his night in the ER.
