Fedors Manager Says He Is Still Fighting In May

He was fighting, he isn't fighting, he is fighting, he isn't. Seems like that has been what has been going on with number one ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko and now his manager says he is still fighting in early May:<br><br>Q: Hello, Vadim, could you confirm the rumors that the fight has been postponed because of financial issues and might not take place at all?<br>VF: Hello, the problem isn't there. The fight will take place. We're planning on showing the bout in over 100 countries. For all of that to go smoothly we had to postpone the event. Unfortunately I do not know the date yet. It's most likely going to be in early May. The bout is also postponed because of some other contract issues. Obviously there are always disagreements and technical questions, but everybody deals with those.<br><br>Q: Gegard Mousasi has recently announced that he has left M-1 Global. Do you still work with him and his manager, Apy Echteld?<br>VF: Mousasi has never had a contract with M-1. If that was the case, he would not have been able to simply leave the organization. Where did he go? He still has his contracts with Strikeforce and Dream. M-1 was helping him grow. Mousasi has always been friends with us and Fedor and in return we were helping him go forward. His action was a surprise to me. I plan on meeting with him next week and finding out what's wrong. We used to say that Mousasi is an M-1 fighter, because he was starting in our organization. I'm sure that on our M-1 Challenge and M-1 Selection tournament he will not be the only fighter of that level. <br><br>Props: <a href=http://www.mmanews.su>MMANews.SU</a>, Translation via <a href=http:www.bloodyelbow.com>Bloodyelbow.com</a>
