Calvary Chapel's Jeremy Thomas will meet close friend Anthony Mantanona in the 170-pound final later tonight. Mantanona beat Thomas last week in the finals at Masters.
Here is what Thomas said Friday night about the possibility of meeting Mantanona again:
"We’re best friends, but it doesn’t really matter on the mat. People may say I gave him too much respect (last week) …we’re friends off the mat, we’re not friends on the mat. We’ll go at it every single time. It could be a different outcome but I’m definitely gunning for that first place....
"It’s just a couple of technical areas that I can fix. It is just another wrestling match, we’ve wrestled are whole lives together. It is like wrestling a friend, you wrestle everyday.
