Wladimir Klitschko will have the weight advantage you'd expect to go along with every other advantage tomorrow against Jean Marc Mormeck in their world heavyweight championship fight. Today in Germany, Klitschko weighed in at 244.7 pounds, with Mormeck at 216.

Klitschko (56-3, 49 KO) is, as we have noted repeatedly, a prohibitive favorite, and this is not a fight that promises to be much more than a wipeout. The 39-year-old Mormeck (36-4, 22 KO) is a massive underdog, not the least of which is because he'll be giving up roughly 30 pounds tomorrow, as well as seven or eight inches of height.

We'll have a bit more on Klitschko vs Mormeck shortly, including a fight preview (for whatever it's worth) and a look at the full undercard lineup in Germany, which this time will feature Ola Afolabi and Alexander Ustinov, who along with Johnathaon Banks form the holy trinity of Klitschko undercard fighters. The day that all three of them are on the same card, look out.

Also don't forget that Bad Left Hook will have live, round-by-round coverage tomorrow of the fights, as well as the Sky Sports card featuring the Jamie McDonnell vs Ivan Pozo main event.
