Dzhabar Askerov is one of the most active fighters on the scene right now and has been for quite some time. He's back at it again on Saturday in his original home of Dagestan, Russia at NewFC - Battle of the Stars.
Askerov will fight Enriko Kehl, a 20 year old German fighter who is a very quickly rising prospect at 70kg. Kehl already fought and won once in Russia this year, dominating Magomed Magomedov to a decision win at the Tatneft Cup Finals in October. Askerov will be on of Kehl's biggest tests to date, having already faced Murat Direkci.
This will be Askerov's eleventh fight of the year. He had a few more fights this year that he pulled out of or were cancelled, including a potential fight vs. Steve Moxon that was scheduled for December 9 in Australia.
