The Beat The Streets event will, once again, be coming back to Times Square for another amazing wrestling event in the pulse of New York City. Each year the best wrestlers in the United States take on top wrestlers from other parts of the globe. In the past we have seen wrestlers from Russia, Iran, Azerbaijan and Cuba, among others.
This year Team USA will be taking on a Team Japan next Wednesday, May 17. There will be a slew of talented wrestlers representing the United States on the big stage.
Most of the winners from the Men’s Freestyle US Open will be representing the USA along with some of the USA’s toughest female wrestlers, including 2016 Olympic Champion Helen Maroulis. Also joining the event will be 2016 World and Olympic Champions Logan Stieber and Kyle Snyder.
The event will get kicked off with an all-star match between high school standouts Daton Fix and Austin DeSanto. The other match that will not involve a Japanese wrestler will be a 65kg match between 2015 World Champion and Olympic Bronze medalist Frank Chamizo of Italy taking on 2017 US Open Champion Jordan Oliver.
10 senior level World or Olympic Gold medals will be represented at this event.
