A Match Made In Heaven: J’Den Cox and Cliff Keen Wrestling Club

Cox, who wrestled at Missouri, was exceptional in college. He won three NCAA championships and compiled a mind-boggling record of 136-5 at his time in the college ranks. He moves to Ann Arbor where Michigan is the third best team in the country behind the defending champions in Iowa and the powerhouse that is Penn State.

Michigan’s head coach Sean Bormet said that the addition of J’Den Cox to Cliff Keen will not only be beneficial for Cox, but the Wolverines wrestling team as well.

“Everyone looks forward to J’Den’s full-time arrival to Ann Arbor,” said Sean Bormet. “His work ethic and achievements speak for themselves, and he is hungry to be the best in the world again this cycle. In addition to all his international accolades, J’Den is also a three-time NCAA champion and will be able to relate exceptionally well to his collegiate training partners. This is the overall RTC balance that continues to elevate wrestling in the United States and at Michigan.

Cliff Keene Wrestling Club adds J’Den Cox to a laundry list of senior level wrestlers that have accomplished plenty on the World level. Myles Amine won bronze at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics at 86 kilos. The club also hosts Alex Dieringer, Alec Pantaleo, Malik Amine, Stevan Micic, Mason Parris, and Derek White. The staff boasts an embarrassment of riches with 2 time Olympic Champion Sergei Beloglazov, Bormet, Josh Churella, and Dave Bolyard.
