World cup thread

Now that it's confirmed that team USA will be allowed to travel to Iran, what matches are you looking forward to? 

 

Iran and America will send pretty much their best teams as usual, but this year it seems Turkey and Russia are sending good teams also. I believe I read Turkey is even sending Akgul at 125 and  Yasar at 86.

Russia doesn't send good team, Yarygin bronze medalists go to World Cup.

I think 

57: Artem Gebekov, Uguev, Abakarov or Nariman Israpilov

61: Viktor Rassadin, Nachin Kuular or Bulat Batoev

65: Chermen Valiev, Bekbulatov or Alan Gogaev

70: Magomedkhabib Kadimagomedov, Alibek Akbaev or ISrail Kasumov

74: Radik Valiev, Atsamaz Sanakoev

86: Vladislav Valiev, Dauren Kurugliev, maybe Kudyia and Aleksander Zelenkov

97: Rasul Magomedov, Yuri Belonovskiy, maybe Anzor Boltukaev

125: Boldan Tsyzhipov and Kazbek Khubulov

The press release said 13 US wrestlers, but there are only 9 listed there. Too bad Cox isn't going. Would love to see him against Yazdani.

 

JO was going at 70 but not sure if that is still the case after he hurt is shoulder in the finals of the Schultz.

 

Also not sure if any of the guys who planned  to go are having 2nd thoughts given the political situation that developed.  Looking forward to see who actually goes.

So to answer your question, my main focus will be on the young Yazdani on his new weight.  Very interested to see how he will perform in any and all his matches

This will be his first real test at 86. Especially if Turkey actually sends Yasar and they wrestle. 

And the Azeri guy is tough too, in the absence of Sadulaev, that is about as tough a test as you can have for Yazdani.

I think you mean their Olympian Sharifov, he will almost certainly not be there. He only bothers to cut down to 86 once every four years. Azerbaijan has other good wrestlers at this weight, though. 

That is precisely who I meant

Taylor will give Yazdani all he can handle as well, wouldn't surprise me for Taylor pull the upset.

I'm sure

Jordan Oliver in Iran? Too good to be true.

It wouldn't surprise me if Yazdani techs taylor.  I'd love to see Taylor give yaz a good match, but winning the Paris Grand Prix is a level below the olympic champion.
