Mormeck, 33-3 (21), has savagely defended his position with wins over a superb list of challengers including Virgil Hill, Wayne Braithwaite, Dale Brown and Alexander Gurov while avenging the only loss on his record in the last ten years by defeating O'Neill Bell in a rematch this past March.
But Haye, 19-1 (18), has the firepower as evidenced by a first round destruction in April over 231 pound Polish heavyweight Tomasz Bonin, who came into the fight with Haye at 37-1 and having gone nine rounds with former Olympic Gold Medallist Audley Harrison.
Once the bell rings to start the first round, there will be no quarter given as both men have stated their only intention is to leave the other a twisted wreck upon the canvas in this winner take all world cruiserweight title bout that has "Fight of The Year" written all over it.
A high quality undercard supports the main event as Ali Cheba, 22-0 (16), meets Efren Guerrero, 16-6-3 (12), for the WBC Youth light welterweight crown.
Also on the bill, former WBA light welter champ Souleymane M'baye meets Ameth Diaz, EU light middleweight titlist Christophe Canclaux squares off with ex-IBO king Steve Conway and light welter Olivier Bonine faces Eric Patrac.
