J’den COX has become one of the world’s most accomplished upper-weight freestyle wrestlers since entering the world stage in 2016. He claimed a bronze medal at the 2016 Olympics in Rio. Since then, Cox has gone 12-1 at world championships, earning a bronze medal in 2017 at 86kg before winning world titles in both 2018 and 2019 at 92kg. He was undefeated in 2019 and outscored his opponents 26-0 at the 2019 World Championships in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan.
Cox joined Eric Olanowski to talk about winning a pair of world golds, his recent move up to arguably the deepest weight in the world, 97kg, and why he thinks Abdulrashid SADULAEV (RUS) and Kyle SNYDER (USA) are the two best pound-for-pound wrestlers in the world.
