KAMIL GADJIEV SAYS ALEKSANDER EMELIANENKO AGREED TO FIGHT SERGEI KHARITONOV; KHARITONOV REACTED

The events are moving rapidly in the situation between Aleksander Emelianenko (28-7-1) and Sergei Kharitonov (28-6, 1 NC) and keep adding new details. 

In his interview to Sports.ru the Fight Nights Global president Kamil Gadjiev said that Emelianenko agreed to fight Kharitonov and now all they had to do was wait for Kharitonov’s response. 

“Emelianenko agreed to fight Kharitonov. If Sergei really wants it, the fight will happen. It’s for him to decide,” Gadjiev said. 

The statement was answered by Sergei almost immediately. Sports.ru quoted his words that were, as usual, non-specific. 

“It’s simple. If Kamil really wants this fight, I don’t understand why he doesn’t call or message me then. Call me and say: “Hi, Sergei. Are you ready for the fight? We’re ready to make a contract with you for such price on such terms.” And then they say it’s for me to decide. What if Sergei won’t even see the news? Should I surf online all the time? It’s a weird situation,” Kharitonov replied. 

Earlier, Gadjiev said he was ready to offer 10 million Rubles each to make this fight happen.
