The Annual Beat the Streets Gala has given us a lot of great matches over the years, and is the number one fundraiser for the program. They are back in Times Square to give us a series of fun matchups.
Andy Bisek will square up with the fella from South Korea who won gold in 2012 Olympics.
Helen Maroulis & Adeline Gray will face (read: destroy) a couple Canadians.
USA Wrestling announced (before the tournament began) that four of the champs from Junior Nationals would get the opportunity to face opponents from Iran in this year's event. These should be pretty interesting and high flying matches.
Jordan Burroughs and J'Den Cox also face tough opponents to close out the matches. Cox's opponent was a 2008 Olympian who fell in the quarters. Burroughs will take on a 22-year old who was the Asian Games champion in 2015.
Greco Olympian Robby Smith will be on the mic. So that should provide some entertainment as well.
The action starts at 6:30pm Eastern on FloWrestling.
