The 2020 Greco-Roman world cup in Tehran, Iran is just a week away. The best of the global Greco-Roman wrestlers will be seen in action in Tehran competing for the world cup trophy for their teams. WrestlingTV.in will bring the entire action LIVE from the world cup for the wrestling fans from 28th November.
Watch out for these 6 world champs
The six reigning world champs will travel to Tehran to compete in the Greco-Roman World Cup.
The biggest storyline heading into the dual meet event is the potential Rio Olympic finals rematch between Ismael BORRERO MOLINA (CUB) and Shinobu OTA (JPN), which could be looming at 67kg.
Borrero and Ota both won world titles in Nur-Sultan, but the Japanese wrestler will begin his ascent from his title-winning non-Olympic weight of 63kg to the Olympic weight of 67kg, where the Cuban wrestler is the current world-title holder. Shortly after winning his world title last month, Ota announced that he’d climb up 4kg to 67kg to make a run at improving his silver medal from the Rio Olympic Games, where he fell to Borrero in the finals.
In addition to Borrero, Mantsigov and Ota, the Greco-Roman World Cup will also welcome three other world champs. The returning world champs are: Nugzari TSURTSUMIA (GEO), Kenichiro FUMITA (JPN) and Lasha GOBADZE (GEO).
