Dzhabar Askerov, a fighter being sponsored by our good friends at Yokkao, will be fighting this weekend in the Final 16 of the Glory World Series at 70kg. His opponent is one of the best and brightest within the weight class, Robin van Roosmalen. This means that he has a huge challenge ahead of him, but Askerov is no stranger to that kind of challenge. Askerov has a lot of impressive wins over the span of his career, with most of his losses only coming to top competition, such as Buakaw Por. Pramuk, Giorgio Petrosyan, Mike Zambidis and John Wayne Parr. Will Robin be on such a star-studded list of men to defeat Askerov, or will Askerov be able to keep the agressive bulldog that is van Roosmalen at bay and pick him apart?
The only way to find out is to buy the Glory World Series event this weekend. For now, go ahead and watch this video of Askerov training and discussing the fight.
