After showcasing only high school matches last year, Agony in Ames has added a professional bout to the card of its 2017 edition. Joey Dance will take on Earl Hall at 60kg in a battle of two-time All-Americans on Oct. 21st in Ames, Iowa.
Dance is now with the Chicago RTC and planning to start his senior-level career. A former junior world team member, his last freestyle action was at the 2015 U.S. Open.
Hall will be competing for the Cyclone RTC. His most recent freestyle tournament was University Nationals in June while wrestling up at 65kg. At one time, Hall was living and training full-time at the Olympic Training Center.
The two never met while in college, as Dance was a career 125-pounder and Hall spent his last three years at 133. We could see this one come down to their signature moves: Hall's mixer against Dance's superduck.
