Beat the Streets in New York City announced its second live wrestling matchup as part of its annual fundraising event on Thursday, September 17, which will be broadcast in partnership with FloWrestling.
Minnesota All-American Gable Steveson will battle Wisconsin All-American Trent Hillger in a rematch of the 2019 Big Ten semifinals, which you can watch above.
In addition to being an NCAA finalist, Gable Steveson is highly accomplished in freestyle. The Minnesota native qualified for 2019 Final X by defeating Greco-Roman World silver medalist and NCAA finalist Adam Coon two matches to none, including once by tech fall. A three-time age level World champion and still just 20 years old, it is highly speculated that Steveson is the future of the heavyweight weight class for Team USA.
In 2019 Hillger earned his first All-American status as a redshirt freshman when he finished eighth. Going into the 2020 NCAA Championships, Hillger earned himself the sixth seed.
Watch the two wrestled at the 2018 Junior World Team Trials back in 2018 below.
Earlier this month, Beat the Streets announced that it would conduct its annual fundraising event as a Virtual Telethon. The live matches will be held outdoors with no fans in an undisclosed location somewhere in the Tri-State area. The matches will be held with the safety of the participants as the first priority, following state and local health and government restrictions as well as the USA Wrestling Return to Events Guidelines.
As part of its partnership with Beat the Streets this year, FloWrestling will produce both portions of the Beat the Streets fundraiser this year. The Virtual Telethon will be free to view, and include live and recorded content as part of the fundraising celebration. The Virtual Telethon will have a variety of different features including prominent athletes, coaches and celebrities. Fans will need a FloPro subscription to view the live matches.
