Professional Career

On February 23, 2002, in Marseille, France Mormeck captured the WBA cruiserweight title via a 9th round TKO over Virgil Hill. Following three defenses, he added the WBC cruiserweight crown to his collection on April 2, 2005, by way of a 12 round unanimous decision over Wayne "Big Truck" Braithwaite in Worcester, Massachusetts. Mormeck lost his WBA and WBC belts on January 7, 2006 in a bid to unify the cruiserweight titles against O'Neil Bell, who knocked him out in the 10th round. However, Mormeck beat Bell in the rematch, over the course of a 12 round decision. The scores were 115-113, 115-113 and 116-112 all for Mormeck.
