Ganev won the final against Uzbekistan representative Zaurbek Sokhiev 2:1 (1:0, 0:4, 4:2).

The Bulgarian wrestler had a string of three prior victories earlier on Saturday.

This is the third Bulgarian gold in Moscow, after Hristo Marinov won the 84-kg Greco-Roman wrestling contest Tuesday, and Stanka Zlateva got the 72-kg title for the women's contest.
