Thread: Burroughs vs Tsargush

    No question that Burroughs has a chance. Put it this way, I consider 2011 Tsargush to be about comparable with 2007 Murtazaliev and 2011 Burroughs at a higher level than 2007 Heskett - yet Heskett gave Murtazaliev a hell of a match that Worlds. Burroughs also seems to have the advantage of being able to consistently dominate second-tier foreigners that few of our recent freestylers have been able to do. For example, Mike Zadick went on that great run at the 2006 Worlds but never really recreated that consistency losing to wrestlers that haven't ever been medal contenders. Even Heskett had the phenomenal performance against Murtazaliev, but only beat an unaccomplished Chinese wrestler 5-3 and lost pretty solidly to Chamsulvaraev for bronze 5-1. Theoretically (b/c as Coach Jones says we need to wait until he actually goes out and does it) Burroughs should be pretty reliable against the non-elite based on his Geduev/Murta wins. And yes, I realize that Chamuslvaraev could be considered elite with multiple world medals, but he was much less competitive against Murtazaliev than Heskett yet beat up on him head to head.

    I heard his grip (Burroughs) is paralyzingly strong but I'd worry more about those doubles.

    Very happy to have been wrong about this one.

    Even though it was blatant homersim that happens to have panned out, I'll take it!

    This was the only thing I think I predicted properly.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    2011 Worlds Freestyle 74kg - Jordan Burroughs (USA) vs. Denis Tsargush (RUS) - YouTube

    What a match! One of the best of the year. Burroughs is just so fast and fit, and Tsargush's exression in the third period says somthing like "oh crap, I'm finally trying hard and it isn't working!"

    The commentators on flowrestling seem obessed with Tsargush's singlet grabbing. I wonder how the Russian fans feel about Burroughs' head being squarely in Tsargush's face, I think he cracked him good at least once.
