Description:
Jean-Marc Mormeck (born 3 June 1972) is a French professional boxer of Antillean descent and a former WBC & WBA unified world cruiserweight champion.

Early life

Mormeck was born in Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe as an only child to Fulbert and Sonia Mormeck. When he was 6, he and his family moved to Paris, France where he still lives. Mormeck engaged himself in football and Muay Thai as an amateur. After watching some boxing matches on television, he became inspired to excel in it.

Boxing career

He fought as an amateur in 1990 and turned professional in 1995. On 10 November 1998, Mormeck won the French light heavyweight title with a unanimous decision win over Alain Simon. He defended that title three times before relinquishing it.

Later, Mormeck captured the WBA cruiserweight title by a 9th round technical knockout win over Virgil Hill on 23 February 2002. Following three defenses with wins over Dale Brown, Alexander Gurova and Virgil Hill again, he added the WBC cruiserweight crown to his collection on 2 April 2005, by way of unanimous decision over Wayne Braithwaite.

However, Mormeck lost his WBA and WBC cruiserweight titles to O'Neil Bell in a classic match after getting knocked out in the 10th round. This bout, on 7 January 2006, was for the undisputed (WBA/WBC/IBF) cruiserweight championship. Later, he regained them back from Bell (Bell lost the IBF title over a dispute from the organization) by unanimous decision on 17 March 2007.
