Titan Mercury Wrestling Club Advances to World Clubs Cup Semifinals

 

By: Jonny Ruggiano

Defending World Champions, Titan Mercury, advanced to the World Clubs Club semifinals after a dominant day of competition in Tehran, Iran. Eight members of the team including, Thomas Gilman, B.J. Futrell, Nazar Kulchytskyy, Kyle Dake, David Taylor, Nick Heflin, Kyle Snyder and Nick Gwiazdowski, all have undefeated records leading into the semifinals bout against Khimori Wrestling Club of Mongolia.

Both Kyle Dake and Nick Gwiazdowski have collected three 10-0 tech falls each. While Nick Heflin also remains unscored upon with an amassed total of 24-0 in three bouts. David Taylor also came up with a big :18 second pin in-route to his undefeated record. Perhaps the most impressive win of the pool rounds came from 2017 World silver medalist, Thomas Gilman, who defeated Amit Kumar of India; 6-3, in a matchup of World finalists.

On the opposite side of the pools, former 2X World Champions, Bimeh Razi was upset by another Iranian team, Setaregan Sari. Both Iranian squads have saturated their rosters with international stars. On Bimeh Razi’s side Russians Khetik Tsabolov, Aniuar Geduev and Abdulrashid Sadulaev all have added extra depth to their squad. Equally yoked, Setaregan Sari has improved their line up with the assistance of Azeri Haji Aliev, as well as Russians Magomed Kurbanaliev and Magomed Rasul Gazimagomedov.

In an interesting turn of events, the heavily favored World Champion Haji Aliev suffered a loss to Iranian Meysam Nasiri; 4-8. 2017 World finalist Khetik Tsabolov was also upset by Gazimagomedov; 4-8. Omid Hasantabar of Setaregan Sari continued the trend, defeating Olympic runner-up, Aniuar Geduev; 10-7.  World Champions Magomed Kurbanaliev and Abdulrashid Sadulaev were the only two to remain unscathed. The final controversy in the duals came with Bimeh Razi’s Komeil Ghasemi not competing in the final bout of the dual, giving Setaregan Sari the win, 6-4.

In pool D, Easy Pipe dominated the field. Following suit, the Iranian team boosted its roster with a pair of Georgian World and Olympic Champions: Vladimir Khinchegashvili and Geno Petriashvili. Russian standout Vladislov Baitsaev has joined Easy Pipe was well.

The semifinals will begin at 10:30 pm, Pacific Standard Time. Titan Mercury’s semifinal bout against Khimori of Mongolia will be livestreamed via Instagram @titan_mercury.
