US Open 70kg Preview


70kg at the US Open is getting talked about quite a bit after this post made by Baschamania on Instagram.

First glance looking at this the final seems like it would fall between Alec Pantaleo and Jordan Oliver. Pantaleo won that match the last two times they wrestled at the Rudis+ card and a while back at the Flo Wrestling 150lb bracket which was won by Bajrang Punia of India.

Sasso, Lewan, Andonian, and Gomez are all coming off of recent All American finishes at the national tournament and will be looking to make some moves here.

Tyler Berger and Anthony Ashnault just wrestled a while back at the Bill Farrell where Berger got the better of Ashanult 6-6 in a thriller which should be another fantastic match should we see it go down again.

Entertainment wise this will most likely be the most exiting bracket in terms of fun matches to watch but as far as winning the thing goes I do not see Pantaleo or Oliver going down before the finals should they be in decent shape.

At the end of the day the record speaks for itself and Pantaleo would have to be my pick here.
