Two-time defending champion Ali Gürbüz went out early, failing to capture a third straight title which would have granted him permanent gold belt status. That cleared the field for Şimşek, who defeated Mustafa Taş in a finals showdown that lasted nearly a full hour. The match was decided when Şimşek feinted a leg grab that had Taş dropping low to defend. Şimşek instantly got behind him hoisting Taş off the ground and arching back to hurl him with a picture perfect suplex type throw that clinched the championship.
