Dzhabar Askerov hadn't fought since June 7, and for him, that is a really long time without fighting. Askerov has said in the past that he "goes crazy" when he doesn't fight for a few weeks. Today in Australia he finally got back in the ring.
At Night of Mayhem 5 in Melbourne, Australia today, Askerov fought Michael "300" Demetriou. Askerov won by KO in the first round from punches, getting another win and setting himself up for a packed end of the year with many fights already scheduled. Demetriou is a solid win, as he's took Saiyok Pumphanmuang the distance and had a good fight with Steve Moxon.
For Askerov, he's got quite a lot ahead of him for the rest of the year, including fights with the likes of Yoshihiro Sato, Mohammed El Mir this year and Andy Souwer in 2013.
