Anuj Garhwali Vs Netrpal Pahalwan


This is a kushti wrestling bout of my son Anuj Garhwali, he is in red. His fellow wrestler held the camera, which is moving all around , however he managed to capture the bout as a whole. His opponent was heavy and stout, who fought well too. The match however went for not more than 5 minutes, when the referees stopped it declaring a tie. In the end you can watch anuj requesting the referees to extend the time of the bout, but they didn't.
