Doha World’s Predictions -60kg: Takato (JPN)

At -60kg, the top favorite has to be Naohisa Takato of Japan. Although he has not competed internationally this year, there is really nobody who is quite his calibre. Yang Yung Wei of Taiwan is always interesting to watch as he is such a capable fighter but he has had a history of having difficulty dealing with Japanese opponents, including Takato. Giorgi Sardlashvili of Georgia has a very unorthodox style and could prove to be a dark horse.
