Video – #HUGEUPSET: Khizriev Stuns Olympic Champ Akgul

    Anzor KHIZRIEV (RUS) took the mat at the “Toughest Tournament on Earth,” the Ivan Yariguin, searching for his second career Ranking Series gold medal. In the gold-medal-bout, he squared off with two-time world champion and Rio Olympic gold medalist, Taha AKGUL (TUR).

    Khizriev carried the 3-3 on criteria into the second period after trading exposures and one-point exchanges with Akgul. In the closing period, the Russian big man scored exposures on back-to-back crotch lifts after stopping a pair of Turkish High-Crotch attempts.

    Khizriev won the bout 7-3, matching his Ranking Series gold-medal performance from the ’18 Poland Open.
