Alexander Emelyanenko faces Hizir Pliev in pro boxing debut – video


On Oct. 3, 2009, Alexander Emelyanenko made his boxing debut in Moscow against master of sports in boxing and Russian kickboxing champion Hizir Pliev. In the end, the judges ruled that each fighter won two rounds each and the fight was declared a draw. Alexander commented after the fight, “Halfway through this fight I realized that I’m not at home in my bed and I have to move around much more and box. I don’t think I let a lot punches land on me and I had complete control of everything that was going on.”

Alexander felt he did not really become comfortable until after the second round and if the fight would have continued he would have knocked out his opponent. “I was boxing much better after the second round,” He said. “In the third I saw my opponent getting back a little.

Parts 2-3 after the jump…
