Four-time world champion, American freestyle wrestler Kyle Dake told he would still have a chance to compete with the Russian Olympic champion Zaurbek Sidakov and he will be able to take revenge on him.
On Monday, Sidakov defeated Dake 10:7 in the final of the Olympic category up to 74 kg and became a three-time world champion. By reaching the final, he assured the Russian team an Olympic license. Sidakov said Dake behaved disrespectfully and did not shake his hand after the final fight.
— At the end of the fight you argued with the judges. Do you agree with the results of the final?
— Yes, I agree with the judges’ decisions. It’s a well-deserved victory for Sidakov. I didn’t have enough to win. But it’s a fight, it’s life. I have to make adjustments to improve and move forward. I’m glad I had this opportunity. I will come back and try to win the World Championship again.
— Is Sidakov your main rival?
– Yes. I hope we can fight again and I will have a chance to get revenge,” Dake told .
