The wrestling action from the Asian Wrestling Championships came to an end today with the final bouts on the mat held at the KD Jadhav Hall in New Delhi at the Indira Gandhi Stadium. The sixth day of action saw the men's freestyle wrestling competitions take place across a set of different weight categories.

Indian wrestlers Rahul Aware (61 kg), Jitender (74 kg), Deepak Punia (86 kg), Sombir (92 kg) and Satender (125 kg) were in action through the day as they aimed to provide a boost to India's medal tally at the Asian Wrestling Championships.
