While Dahiya created associate early exit, Naveen entered the bronze match when beating World No. four Syrbaz Talgat of Uzbekistan in 70kg gap opening of race 11-3.

World No. 2 Dahiya lost by technical superiority (10-0) to the Uzbek in an exceedingly rather one-sided bout.

Dahiya,  won the silver at the Tokyo Olympics last year, won’t be contesting in race for bronze as Abdullaev lost to Albanian wrestler Zelimkhan Abakarov.

On the opposite hand, Naveen’s win took him on to the bronze match as his next-round opponent Ilyas Bekbulatov (Uzbekistan) could not contend thanks to associate injury.

Even though Abdullaev exacted revenge over Dahiya when his loss within the UWW Ranking Series event (Yasar Dogu 2022) in Istanbul in February, the Uzbek couldn’t go past Abakarov, who won by technical superiority (13-2) to book his match spot.
