Daton Fix and Zain Retherford lose and subsequently are not pulled back into repechage.


NUR-SULTAN, Kazakhstan – The first two U.S. men’s freestyle wrestlers competed on Thursday morning at the World Wrestling Championships, and both suffered heartbreaking losses.

Daton Fix (Sand Springs, Okla./Titan Mercury WC/Cowboy RTC) went 1-1 at 57 kg/125.5 lbs. in his first appearance in a Senior World Championships.

Fix won his opening match handily, defeating 2019 European bronze medalist Vladimir Egorov of Northern Macedonia. Fix scored three first period takedowns to lead Egorov at the break, 6-1. In the second period, Fix added three more takedowns to close out the technical fall.

In the next round, Fix lost a tight 4-2 match to 2017 World champion and 2018 World bronze medalist Yuki Takahashi of Japan.

Fix scored the only takedown of the match early in the second period. Takahashi scored two points, with Fix being placed on the shot clock twice, once in the first period and once in the second period. As time was winding down, the score was 2-2 with Fix holding criteria. Takahashi forced the action and received a step out call with 16 seconds left to lead 3-2. The USA challenged and after a lengthy video review, the challenge was denied, giving Takahashi his final point.

Takahashi was defeated in the quarterfinals by Kumar Ravi of India, 6-1, which means Fix was not eligible for repechage. To compete in repechage, a wrestler must lose to a gold-medal finalist.

Zain Retherford (State College, Pa./(Nittany Lion WC) was defeated at 65 kg/143 lbs. in his opening bout, and also is not eligible for repechage.

In the first round, Retherford lost a heartbreaking 10-9 decision to two-time World bronze medalist Alejandro Valdes Tobier of Cuba.

Valdes jumped to an early 6-0 lead, with a takedown and two turns. A Retherford takedown made it 6-2 at the break. In the second period, Retherford added a double leg to close it to 6-4. After a 2-and-2 action, the score was 8-6. There was a break to tape up blood on both wrestlers, Retherford initiated a shot. Officials called it a 2-and-2, with both wrestlers getting exposure. Retherford ended up on top with a reversal, making the final score 10-9.

Valdes won his next match, but then was defeated in the third round by Haji Mohammed Ali of Bahrain, 11-6,

Retherford placed 11th at the 2017 Senior World Championships and was a 2011 Cadet World champion at 63 kg. Retherford was a three-time NCAA champion and Dan Hodge Trophy winner at Penn State.

Jordan Burroughs is defeated by Russian Sidakov in closing seconds of semis reminiscent of last year when Sidakov defeated Burroughs in the quarters.
Burroughs is wrestling for Bronze and at the least has already qualified his weight class for the Tokyo Olympics.

J'Den Cox continues his ascension as one of the top wrestlers in the world pound-for-pound. Wrestles an Iranian in the finals that he defeated 5-2 in last years semis.

Maybe it's time for JB to retire and let I-mar take over. He's already had a tremendous career.

Will be very interesting to see where the non-Olympic weight guys go next year. Both Dake and Dieringer will probably join IMAR in trying to finally take the spot from JB.

Where does J'Den Cox go ? Does he wrestle David Taylor or Kyle Snyder?

Crucial bronze match for JB. If he wins, then as a world medalist he advances straight to the final wrestle-off series for the Olympic spot. Big advantage
Additionally, with the weight class qualified he doesn't need to wrestle Pan American Championships to qualify the weight. Rest of Team USA will be competing since we've only qualified 2 weights out of 18 and the Pan Ams typically provide our best opportunity at qualifying weights.

JB will at least wrestle the 2020 Olympic year but after that all bets are off. He's been chasing John Smith as the best freestyle wrestler in USA wrestling history. Smith has 4 World titles and 2 Olympic golds JB has 4 World titles and 1 Olympic gold. JB could tie Smith with a championship in Tokyo next year. But you know what they say about a tie and furthermore Smith supporters will be quick to point out that Smith won his 6 world level titles in consecutive years. True domination.
Does JB then wrestle one more year attempting to compile 7 world level titles to cement his status as GOAT? Most retirements occur at conclusion of a quadrenium so its going to be intetesting if JB hangs up the shoes after next year.

There already have been good college guys declare Olympic redshirts for next year. Many more will follow. A handful will wrestle deep into the field at Olympic Trials. Mekhi Lewis and Suriano are two in particular that have declared and I'm interested to see what damage they can inflict.

NUR-SULTAN, Kazakhstan -- J'den Cox left no doubt that he is the best freestyle wrestler in the world at 92 kilograms.

Cox repeated as world champion on Saturday with a 4-0 victory in the finals over Iran's Alireza Karimimachiani at the World Championships in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan. He finished the tournament without surrendering a single point, outscoring his four opponents 26-0.

"I think I made more sacrifices this year to achieve it again than I did last year," said the 24-year-old Cox. "I wanted to do it better. I came here and didn't get scored on. No disrespect to Karimi, but that whole match he didn't want to come and get it. He wanted to keep it close and wanted to play the game."

Cox wasted little time getting on the scoreboard in the finals, picking up a takedown off a knee pick 20 seconds into the match. The score stayed that way until the closing moments of the opening period when Cox got to Karimi's leg and finished for a takedown shortly before the period ended. A scoreless second period gave Cox the victory.

He has now won a medal at the World Championships or Olympic Games every year since 2016, going a perfect 4-for-4 in medal matches.

Jordan Burroughs won his seventh world medal at 74 kilograms to go along with his Olympic gold in 2012. The 31-year-old American dominated Japan's Mao Okui, 10-0, in the bronze-medal match.

In the first minute of the match, Burroughs scored a takedown off a double leg and then used a gut wrench to go up 4-0. He built his lead to 6-0 after another takedown off a double leg. Burroughs put the match away early in the second period with a third takedown and exposure.

Kyle Dake advanced to the finals at 79 kilograms (Photo/Mark Lundy, Lutte-Lens.com)

Dake reaches finals for second straight year, Snyder falls to Sharifov in semifinals

It was an up-and-down first session for the United States on Saturday as Kyle Dake advanced to the finals, while Kyle Snyder was defeated in the semifinals.

Dake, a returning world champion, cruised to the finals at 79 kilograms, outscoring his three opponents by a combined score of 23-4. In the semifinals, Dake defeated Rashid Kurbanov of Uzbekistan, 6-1. He went up 6-0 in the first period after a takedown and two gut wrenches. Kurbanov got on the scoreboard in the second period after Dake was hit with a caution. The two would continue to battle, but no more points were scored and Dake moved into the finals.

Earlier in the day, Dake rolled to a 12-2 technical superiority in his first match over Oibek Nasirov of Kyrgyzstan before defeating Russia's Gadzhi Nabiev, 5-1.

Azerbaijan's Sharif Sharifov, a 2012 Olympic champion and 2016 Olympic bronze medalist, spoiled a potential third meeting between Snyder and Russia's Abdulrashid Sadulaev. Sharifov defeated Snyder in the semifinals, 5-2. Snyder scored the first point off the activity clock and led 1-0 at the break.

Early in the second period, Sharifov fired off a shot and secured a takedown to go up 2-1. He extended his lead to 4-1 a short time after exposing Snyder. Snyder inched closer with a step out, making the score 4-2 with two minutes remaining. Sharifov responded with a step out of his own to go up by three and then held Snyder off the rest of the way.

Snyder had a pair of technical superiorities prior to the semifinals. He started his day by beating India's Mausam Khatri, 10-0, before defeating Uzbekistan's Magomed Ibragimov, 13-3, in the quarterfinals.

Tyler Graff reached the quarterfinals at 61 kilograms where he lost to Georgia's Beka Lomtadze, 3-1. Graff scored the only point in the first period off the activity clock and took a 1-0 lead to the break. With a minute and twenty seconds lefts, Lomtadze forced Graff out of bounds for the step. Graff, trailing on criteria, shot and got to Lomtadze's leg in the finals 20 seconds, but the Georgian exposed him for two points and claimed the victory.

The 30-year-old American remains alive in the competition after Lomtadze held off India's Rahul Aware in the semifinals. He will compete in repechage against Mihai Esanu of Moldova for an opportunity to wrestle back for a bronze medal.

Graff started his tournament with a 10-0 technical superiority over Korea's Jincheol Kim, which he followed up with a 7-0 victory over China's Minghu Liu.

Pat Downey, competing at 86 kilograms, was defeated in the round of 16 by Germany's Ahmed Dudarov, 11-0. After a scoreless first minute, Dudarov hit a carry for four points to go up 4-0. Dudarov continued to build his lead, getting a step out and two more takedowns to go up 9-0 at the break. In the second period, Dudarov put the match away with a four-point, feet-to-back carry.

Downey opened his tournament with back-to-back wins. He won his first match by technical superiority over Armenia's Hovhannes Mkhitaryan, 11-0, before edging Poland's Zbigniew Baranowski on criteria, 3-3.

University of Michigan wrestler Myles Amine became the first Olympic qualifier in wrestling for San Marino. He reached the semifinals at 86 kilograms before losing to Olympic and world champion Hassan Yazdanicharati. He will wrestle for bronze on Sunday. He joins Wolverine teammate Stevan Micic as an Olympian.

If pursuing excellence is the goal, then if I'm the Illinois AD, I make an open offer to either Kyle Dake or David Taylor to give one ofthem the wrestling head coach's job once they retire from competition. And, I offer them a six figure salary commensurate with being a top 10 coach. Can you imagine the immediate credibilty this would have to any elite level high school wrestler?

No he won't. JB is still the favorite in that matchup. As Pyles noted, what dropoff have we seen from JB from 2017 to now? What improvement in Dake?

74 is probably the second toughest weight after 65.

Dake isn't an underdog, but definitely not a favorite either.
