Who is Avelar? What is his history, and would it be too much to ask to put a little matting on the edge of that mat? That throw, in the first, had to hurt a little.

Solid defense by Avelar; talk about being patient and executing/capitalizing on whitford's mistakes.


it seemed like whitford was just looking for a big/fancy move?

is it me or should whitford just keep it simple by focusing on singles/doubles.... no need to go for the big move....

Great match .... kudos to Avelar... .nice work!

My take on it.

This loss could be the best thing for Whitford, I think the pressure of going undefeated for four years is a lot to carry. I honestly believe that now he can release his full potential and show his greatness. He has accomplished so much but now I think he will be a far bigger problem in the futre.

. . . and kudo's for moving up a class. But this is Avelar's day, congratulations to him, and best regards for the remainder of the season.

It was a good match between two great comptitors. Avelar slowed the action down. Maybe that was the key for him. He stayed in good position and choose his spots to score.

He needed a loss?
What level is that? The kid was already all world beating everybody all over the country and ponding everybody in this state.

When is the last time you saw a kid that good or close to being that good winning all of his matches and said to yourself, "He needs to lose to help get him to the next level"? Or do you wait until after he losses to make that assessment?

Kudos to Avelar. Not knocking him because I have seen him wrestle in person several times and he is legit. But he didnt really impress me with this win. He impressed everybody with WHO he beat but not really with the actual match, or at least not me. It was very slow and boring and did not show anything new to me.
