Fedor to call Brothers Fight.

To residents of St. Petersburg, Russia,the "Flying Dutchman" will take on a different meaning July 21 when the ship is the backdrop for an international field of mixed martial artists, including wild Dutch fighter Gilbert Yvel (Pictures) and Russian heavyweight Aleksander Emelianenko (Pictures).

Promoted by Fedor Emelianenko (Pictures)'s manager Vadim Finkelstein, has learned that the world's No. 1 heavyweight will help call the fight between his brother Aleksander and Yvel on NTV, a popular Russian Federation broadcast channel that caters to between 120-150 million viewers.

No other bouts on the card have been released, but fighters from England, France, Germany, and Holland are expected to compete near the historic Hermitage Palace and Peter and Paul Fortress, on the point of Vasilievsky Island.

A representative of Finkelstein's suggested that Russian president Vladimir Putin would attend. Putin was ringside for Fedor Emelianenko (Pictures)'s armbar submission of American Matt Lindland (Pictures) in April.
