The popular Russian heavyweight Alexander Emelianenko, who recently turned to his fans with a request to choose a suitable nickname for him, presented the option on which he chose.
“In the popular vote for my new fighting name, the Phoenix option won with a clear advantage. I really liked it, thank you all for your active participation, ”Emelianenko wrote on social networks, posting the corresponding promo video.
As you know, the Phoenix is a mythological bird reborn after death, so this nickname is the best fit for a heavyweight who literally rises from the ashes before every fight.
Recall that at the moment Alexander Emelianenko is completing preparations for the boxing match against Vyacheslav Datsik, which will be held on September 24 in Moscow.
