After a highly successful 2015 edition, which was hosted in Las Vegas, United States, the World Wrestling Championships heads to the European shores. Hungary will be playing host to the 2016 edition, which starts on December 10. United World Wrestling are the organisation behind the World Wrestling Championships.


The freestyle versions of the tournament have been held from 1951 in the case of the men’s tournament, while the women’s freestyle tournament was a much more recent case after having first been held in 1987. Incidentally, both forms of the freestyle tournament are no longer held with a focus on the combined editions starting from 2005.

Key Info

Budapest, Hungary hosted the first of such combined tournaments. The men’s freestyle was won by Russia, who have been the most successful, while the women’s freestyle was won by Japan. The best odds for both these freestyle tournaments in 2016 are likely to be for Russia and Japan respectively.

Russia have been so dominant since the tournaments were combined that only Iran were able to break the dominance in the 2013 edition. In the women’s freestyle, Azerbaijan and China have managed to break the dominance of Japan by winning the title a piece. There is overwhelming dominance will certainly have its say in the wrestling odds for the 2016 edition.


Even for all their success in recent years, Soviet Union lead the table with the most number of golds – 253. Japan are the closest with 102 golds while Russia are further behind with 90 gold medals. The Amateur Wrestling World Championship 2016 is certainly likely to see both these nations close the gap on the top of the table, but it would take several years in order to bring about a change.

A total of 821 competitors took part in the 2015 edition and they came in from 95 countries around the world. The growing popularity of the World Wrestling Championships is quite clear from the interest in wrestling betting tips. One of the surprising elements of the 2015 edition was the severe dent made at the top of the table by the United States and Turkey. The former managed to win four gold medals while winning three bronze. After a successful Rio Olympics, the United States can be expected to be top of the running according to the latest bet online tips.

The UWW world rankings show that Abdul Rashid Sadulaev of Russia will be coming in as the favourite closely followed by Reineris Salas Perez of Cuba.
