Another New Opponent For Daton Fix

nullFinding an opponent for two-time World bronze medalist Daton Fix has looked like the last few seconds of a game of musical chairs.

Last night, it was confirmed that two-time Pennsylvania State champ Julian Chlebove would be replacing Austin DeSanto after he was forced to back out due to injury. Then after there was some miscommunication between the camps of Fix and Chlebove about what style they would wrestle (freestyle, folkstyle, or first to five takedowns), Chlebove was then replaced.

Fast forward to this morning and another replacement has taken the spot. Montini Catholic's (IL) No. 4-ranked Joey Melendez is stepping up to the plate. Upon getting the call, Melendez and coach Izzy Martinez hopped on a plane and made their way to New York City.
Now, it will be Fix vs Melendez that will get things started before Team USA's men and women take on Japan.
