Dzhbar Askerov vs. Armen Petrosyan


This fight took place back in March it was a part of the “It’s Showtime” Milan show. You might think the match up looks vaguely familiar but this Armen Petrosyan,  Giorgio’s younger and more aggressive sibling.

Last time I profiled the brothers Petrosyan they were doing some cable access commericial for lawn furniture.  I hope to god these guys got some management.

Armen appears to be more aggressive then his bro.  I don’t think he’s as polished but seems to get it done.    Askerov… what can I say, he’s got heart but he really beginning to remind me of Gago, or Zambidis.  It seems like K-1 should be beating down his door, he really seems his style of fighting fits with the K-1 programme.  He drops lots of bombs, but seems incredibly predictable.  I was surprised he’ tried that looping overhead right with Armen… Last time he tried that things ended badly. (skip to 9:07)

That knee is such an elegent solution for an overhead right… it just requires ridiculous timing.  Giorgio seems to have mastered it and makes it look all too easy.

In fact most of my training partners and I drill that exact move, and it does require loads of drilling to anticipate and meet the punch.

Thanks to fightreloaded for the Cam upload!  I never imagined I would be watching cammed footage of a fight, but i’ll take’em where I can get’em
