Looking forward to this weight class.
From the top down we'll see 2009 Euro Champ Zelimkhan Guseinov of AZE taking on Olympic Qualifier Vitaly Koryakin of Tajikistan. Should be a decent bout but Guseinov should have little trouble and make it to the semi final.
The next part of the bracket will see tougher competition in 2005 55 kg World Champ Dilshod Mansurov of Uzbekistan taking the winner of a tough 1/8 bracket where we will see 2007 World Silver Anatoli Guidea wrestle Shawn Bunch first round and Cuba's Maikel Gonzales taking on 2008 Euro Silver Didier Pais of France.
The top of the bottom bracket features Olympic Silver medalist Vasyl Fedorishin. He should also make the semi final. Below that 55 kg 2007 World champ and 2008 Olympic Bronze Besik Kudukhov has moved up a weight and will most likely be taking on 2006 World Champ and 2008 Olympic Bronze medalist Morad Mohammadi second round. The winner will possibly face 2007 World Bronze medalist Bazar Bazarguruev of Kyrgyzstan.
1/4 Final: Guseinov v. Robertty, Mansurov v. Bunch, Tong-Hyok Jo v. Fedorishin, Kudukhov v. Bazarguruev
1/2 Final: Guseinov v. Bunch, Fedorishin v. Kudukhov
Final: Bunch v. Kudukhov
Champion: Besik Kudukhov
