Ramazan Emeev continues to prepare for his upcoming, April 10th bout with M-1 Challenge Middleweight champ Vyacheslav Vasilevsky, who took the title from him last September.

The stoppage defeat, which came in the fourth round at M-1 Challenge 51, ended Emeev’s eight fight winning streak and dropped his overall record to 11-3.

In a recent press release sent out from the promotion, here is some of what Emeev had to say about Vasilevsky and their upcoming rematch.

“I understand that I need solid conditioning and endurance to fight Vasilevsky. I had to be ready, not only for five rounds, but for seven,” said Emeev, when asked about the changes he’s made in his training. “Other than that everything was the same. I don’t have a game plan, yet, but we’ll discuss it when it’s closer to the fight. Now, I do only routine training.”

“I have a powerful motivation – to take back my belt and retrieve what was taken from me,” the 27 year-old said when asked to name three things that will help him defeat Vasilevsky this time around. “I have plenty of time for preparation and that is really good. And the last thing is my knowledge. Now, I know him very well, all of his pros and cons.”

M-1 Challenge 56 will take place in Moscow, Russia, and the card will be available for viewing in North America at M1Global.tv.
