On this edition of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman speaks with freestyle wrestler Mo Lawal, a member of the US national team.
Mo Lawal is an athlete who embodies the totality of the combat sports. He resides and trains at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, and is a 2008 Olympic hopeful. He is also an avid boxing fan, has trained in boxing, and is friends with numerous boxers. After his wrestling career is over, he plans to become a professional mixed martial arts fighter.
He will also be wrestling at the prestigious Alexander Medved International in Minsk, Belarus, Oct. 19-21, at 96 kg/211.5 lbs.
In a lengthy discussion, we talked about his training regimen at the Olympic Training Center; the recent 2007 world wrestling championships in Baku, Azerbaijan, which he attended; some of the burning controversies in international wrestling; his prospects for making the Olympic team in 2008; the Medved tournament; major boxing cards coming up; ties between wrestlers and boxers at the Olympic Training Center; what his specific plans are for entering mixed martial arts; and more.
