Mensah Moves Past Gray; Burroughs and Taylor Rescheduled to Wednesday
In the headlining bout of Flo Wrestling's 10-card match, reigning 68kg world gold medalist Tamarya MENSAH-STOCK (USA) bumped up to 76kg and defeated five-time world gold-medal winner Adeline GRAY (USA), 4-0.
Mensah scored four points in the opening period. She snagged Gray's ankle on a low-level attack before tacking two exposure points to pick up the 4-0 shutout win over one of women's wrestling's most dominant competitors.
Meanwhile, due to contact tracing on the part of '18 world champion David TAYLOR (USA), his colossal matchup with fellow world champion Jordan BURROUGH (USA) has been rescheduled to Wednesday, January 13.
It'll be the fifth time the pair of world champions have squared off in their storied careers. Burroughs owns a 4-0 record, with his last win coming in '14.
