Aleksander Emelianenko, the younger brother of the famous Fedor Emelianenko, has experienced difficulties but is making a comeback. He faced controversies, like an airport incident and a unique exhibition fight. 

After rehab, he embraced Islam, changed his appearance, and visited Saudi Arabia. Supported by the president of the International Boxing Federation, he aims to overcome alcohol addiction and signed a three-fight contract with Ural FC promotion. 

Determined to prove himself, Emelianenko reflects on his journey and upcoming challenges. He considers himself a warrior!

"I am a warrior who had to go through a lot to be where I am, to be who I am. I will get a fight, the most important fight, in which I am the main opponent," Emelianenko wrote.

His brothers and close relatives have nothing against him and his decision to convert to Islam. It is obvious that Aleksander experienced a lot in his life, and he realized that he had to change something. He is ready to go in a completely new direction and improve his life.

Aleksander wants to introduce positive habits into his life and finally stop his addiction. His goal is to train hard, eat healthy, and prepare for the next challenges in his career.

Ural FC promotion will be one of the first changes in his career. He is ready to do great things in this company. He is happy because of the trust they have placed in him. The heads of Ural FC promotions also have huge expectations for Aleksander and his career.

On January 25, Emelianenko signed a contract with Ural FC promotion - the contract is for three fights and can be extended depending on the fighter's performance. “A lot of people expect me to make a mistake and never get back in the ring. This thought is pleasant to them, because if I win, it will be shown that all their excuses for their own inaction are just embarrassing shocks".
