Mumbai: Former world champion Sushil Kumar’s return to the world stage, however, lasted only one round as he lost his 74kg opener at the World Senior Wrestling Championships in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan on Friday.
The 2010 world champion Sushil Kumar’s comeback to the World Championships after eight years proved short-lived as he lost his first-round bout 9-11 to world junior champion Khadzhimurad Gadzhiyev of Azerbaijan in 74kg.
The 36-year-old Sushil had a 9-4 lead in this battle of generations but lost seven consecutive points to concede the bout.
