“Legend III” - LIVE on Fightbox This Saturday!! Dzhabar Askerov vs. Murthel Groenhart

Two of the top -71kg kick boxers in the world will clash at the “Legend” show this Saturday in Milan, Italy. Dzhabar Askerov (83-30-1) has won nine out of his last ten fights including winning the Legend -71 kilogram tournament in 2013, a big win over top Japanese fighter Yoshihiro Sato and a 2013 split decision win over Andy Souwer. Originally Askerov was scheduled to fight top Ukrainian fighter Artur Kyshenko, but Kyshenko withdrew from the fight citing that he was unable to make weight. This is the second time that Kyshenko has backed out of a fight against Askerov, the first being at the previous Legend show due to an injury.

About Kyshenko, Askerov said “I know that Kyshenko has changed his weight class and I know how difficult it is to work off excess weight. I can understand and accept it … Nothing has changed on my part though: I'm ready to fight any man at any time”.

Murthel Groenhart (55-16-3) now steps up to the plate to challenge Askerov. “The Predator” has won eight of his last ten fights including a huge win at Glory 14 a month ago over Teo Mikelić. In fact, Groenhart faced Kyshenko not too long ago, defeating him to win the kickboxing World MAX 2012 World Championship Tournament in Greece.
