Haye was due to fight Wladimir Klitschko in June
The venue for David Haye's WBA heavyweight title fight with champion Nikolay Valuev on 7 November has been confirmed as Germany's Nuremberg Arena.
Valuev, 36, defeated Sergei Liakhovich at the same venue, which can hold up to 10,000 spectators, in February 2008.
"We're delighted to be going back," said Valuev's manager Chris Meyer.
"Niko has only the best of memories of the Nuremberg Arena as that is where he displayed one of the best performances of his career."
Promoter Kalle Sauerland added: "After all the trash talk from David Haye, it is about time that someone shuts him up.
"I am sure Niko will gratefully accept this task. It will be a battle of David against Goliath but this time, Goliath wins."
Haye, 28, has lost only once in 23 fights and is eight stones lighter and nine inches shorter than Russian Valuev.
The Londoner is hoping to become Britain's first heavyweight world champion since Lennox Lewis retired in 2003 but Valuev is confident of holding on to his title.
"I look forward to fighting in Nuremberg again and I will continue where I left off against Liakhovich," said Valuev, who has lost only once in 50 fights.
"Haye is a strong challenger, but he will not beat me. I will defend my title and calm Haye down."
