Greek Website [OnlyFighters.gr] recently reported that K-1 superstar Mike Zambidis would be meeting Dzhabar Askerov in the first round of a 4 man tournament on May 25th in Russia. Filling out the other two spots are two-time MAX finalist Artur Kyshenko and Yuri Bessmertny. Yokkao has already confirmed Askerov's participation in the tournament.

This is obviously pretty exciting news. Every potential fight here is a big one, especially if the favorites, Askerov and Kyshenko make it to the final round. Dzhabar is coming off a monumental win over Andy Souwer at Yokkao 2013, and Artur Kyshenko most recently lost to Murthel Groenhart in the finals of the Greek K-1 MAX grand prix.

That being said, Zambidis and Bessmertny are no slouches either. While Zambo has slowed considerably from his earlier outings in K-1, he still packs a mean punch. Most people, including myself, figued he would retire after his loss at the MAX show in Greece to Murthel Groenhart, but he' still kicking and has already lined up another fight with Batu Khasikov later in the year. Yuri "The Prince" Bessmertny is coming off a very competitive fight with Thai 70 kg superstar Aikpracha. He's also scheduled to face the man that defeated Aikpracha, Karim Ghajji, earlier in April.
