Abozar Mohajer Mighani is an Iranian professional kabaddi player who plays for the Iran national kabaddi team and Telugu Titans in the Pro Kabaddi League. He was born on 19th May 1989. Abozar plays as a defender, and can play either on the right cover or the left corner.
Dubbed as the “Smiling Assassin”, he seems diminutive and keeps a low profile. However, once he steps on the court, his aggressive approach drastically contrasts his temperament and very few raiders are able to escape from his clutches.
A formidable defender, he strikes panic into the raider with his intimidating and aggressive approach to the game. His bulky figure making blocks and dashes is a sight to marvel at. Abozar’s signature move is the back hold where grabs hold of the raider’s torso from behind and immobilizes him.
Before pursuing a career in kabaddi, Abozar was a serious wrestler which shows from his stocky build.
