This weight has what might be the single biggest favorite, 3x world champ Besik Kudukhov. The Russian is also a crowd favorite due to his aggressive style. Ukranian Fedorishin has come oh-so-close the last 3 years, and gone to a 3rd period clinch with Kudukhov twice. I'd love to see Fedorishin win, but he's had several losses this year. Azerbayjan has two world medallists at this weight also. I'd be surprised if anyone else won this weight, but anything can happen. This is, unfortunately, one of those weights where many of the best guys have to stay home because a better guy lives in their country.
