Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko(56-3, 49 KO) will fight cruiserweight champion Jean Marc Mormeck(36-4, 22 KOs) on December 10,2011 at Düsseldorf, Germany.
The fight will be the first for the 35-year-old Klitschko (56-3, 49 KOs) since a landslide decision victory against titlist David Haye in their heavily hyped July 2 bout in Hamburg, Germany.
In 2007, Haye, also a former cruiserweight champion, went to Mormeck’s native France, survived a fourth-round knockdown and rallied to knock him out in the seventh round to win the cruiserweight title.
After the loss, Mormeck (36-4, 22 KOs) took nearly two years off before returning as a heavyweight. He has won each of his three heavyweight bouts against second-tier opposition: Vinny Maddalone, Fres Oquendo and Timur Ibragimov.
