CJA Alumni Richie Lewis talks wrestling and MMA
INTERVIEW BY GARY ABBOTT, USA WRESTLING | JULY 11, 2018, 6:40 P.M. (ET)
Richie Lewis: “I am going to give 2020 my shot then transition into fighting after that.”
Richie Lewis burst onto the international wrestling scene last fall, when he won a gold medal at 70 kg in freestyle at the first U23 World Championships, held in Bydgoszcz, Poland. A New Jersey native, Lewis first went to Junior college, before returning to Rutgers to complete his college wrestling career. He talks about his competition future, which will include a run at the 2020 Olympic team in freestyle, then a change of focus into MMA fighting, which is another major passion for Lewis.
