Shane Carwin says he would have a "puncher's chance" against EmelianenkoPosted on March 17, 2010, 01:33 PM by Daniel Cassidy
In a quick small scale Q&A session with Underground Forums, UFC's number 1 contender for the Heavyweight title, Shane "The Engineer" Carwin was asked about a fight with the worlds number 1 heavyweight, Fedor Emilianenko.
Of course, this is all a hypothetical situation, but it's a question almost every fighter is asked at some stage in their career, Carwin had this to say about a possible fight:
"Hard to say, he is the elite. I think I would like 6-12 months of more training to face him. Right now I would have a puncher's chance," Carwin stated.
Shane Carwin also decided not to rule the possibility of moving to another promotion, seeking for a fight against Emelianenko: “I love competing so where ever that takes me,"
Carwin faces his toughest challenge yet, in an interim title bout with Frank Mir at UFC 111 on March 27th, in a fight that will guarantee him a shot at the Heavyweight title, regardless of who holds it by the time the match comes around. Carwin holds an 11 - 0 record, and is 3 - 0 inside the octagon, with wins over Christian Wellisch, Neil Wain, and Gabriel Gonzaga. So far, Crwin's longest fight has lasted just 131 seconds, his quickest is 22 seconds.
