Haryana Hammers opened their campaign in the 4th season of the Pro Wrestling League 2019 with a comprehensive 5-2 win over the UP Dangal at the Tau Devi Lal Stadium in Panchkula on Day 3 of the tournament.

UP Dangal won the coin toss and decided to block the women’s 62 Kg category while the Haryana Hammers blocked out the men’s 74 Kg category. The match was even after the first four bouts as Iralki Misituri (UPD) lost the first bout by 6-1 against Ali Shabanov (HH) which was followed by a low scoring bout in which Vanesa Kaladzinskaya edged out Seema to bring the UP Dangal back on level terms.

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar was among the audience cheering for the wrestlers.
