English middleweight standout Scott Askham returns to the ACB cage to face tough Russian striker Ibragim Chuzhigaev in the co-main event at ACB 87 in Nottingham.
Askham returns to ACB after successfully defeating Polish favourite Michal Materla with a first-round knockout earlier this year. He was also victorious in the main event of ACB 70, when he defeated British rival Luke Barnatt in front of a partisan crowd in Sheffield.
His opponent, Ibragim Chuzhigaev is no stranger to fighting on British soil. The Berkut Fight Club middleweight has been victorious in all three of his fights in the UK, stopping each opponent inside the distance. He was victorious over Will Noland as chief support to Askham at ACB 70.
“I’m sure that we’ll meet in the middle and slug it out. Let’s see who gets their hand raised!” – Scott Askham
