Abozar Mohajermighani: The defense mastermind
Due to the Pro Kabaddi League, Kabaddi is now reaching all over the world. Iran’s men and women team won the Gold medal at Asian Games 2018. While India’s supremacy in Kabaddi came to an end, Iran has emerged as a new champion in the sport. A powerhouse of Kabaddi, Iran is known for their strong defense. Fazel Atrachali, Meraj Sheykh, and Abozar Mohajermighani are some of the Iran team members who play Pro Kabaddi.
In PKL season 6, he will play for Telugu Titans who purchased him for a massive amount of Rs.76 Lakh. He performed outstandingly well in his debut season for Gujarat Fortunegiants. He got a bid of Rs.50 Lakh in his maiden PKL. With his wrestling power and abilities, Abozar had 65 tackle points to his name from 24 matches of PKL. His blocks and dashes made him one of the deadliest defenders of Pro Kabaddi season 5.
This right-corner defender formed a successful partnership in defense with Fazel Atrachali which proved instrumental for Gujarat Fortunegiants. Both of them were the strong pillars of Gujarat Defense. Out of 254 tackle points scored by Gujarat Fortunegiants team together, this duo scored 122 tackle points and the Iranian duo made sure their team entered the final.
Gujarat was considered one of the strongest defensive unit of season 5 with their courtesy. But in the upcoming 6th season of Pro Kabaddi League Fazel and Abozar will not play together. Abozar is in Telugu Titans’ squad and Fazel is now part of U Mumba.
This wrestler turned Kabaddi player has played a vital role in giving Iran their first ever historic Gold Medal. He has also won a Silver medal at 2016 Kabaddi World Cup. Abozar is also 2010 and 2014 Asian Games Silver Medalist.
Abozar had a dream debut with Gujarat Fortunegiants. With his fabulous performance in season 5, now Abozar Mohajermighani is all ready to set the mat on fire for his new team Telugu Titans in the forthcoming season 6 of PKL. Telugu Titans will start their Pro Kabaddi campaign on 9th October 2018 by taking on Tamil Thalaivas.
