Top-ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko, who was scheduled to fight on Saturday at Affliction: Trilogy before the event was canceled and the promotion was folded, will hold a press conference on Wednesday at 1pm PT in Anaheim, California.
During the press conference, Emelianenko will “discuss the ramifications of the cancellation, comment on his future in the fight game, and respond to questions from members of the media.”
“Since the cancellation, there has been a great deal of speculation regarding Fedor and M-1,” said M-1 Global owner Vadim Finkelchtein, whose company promotes MMA events, including past co-promotions with Affliction, and also manages Fedor. “On Wednesday, the media and fans will be able to hear what’s going on with Fedor from the man himself.”
