View Full Version : Who Is The Top Deadlifter At 198 Or 132

My friend Tom Eiseman will more than likely go 181 at Worlds, leaving two of my friends in line with a great chance at another world title:


and in my eyes, the best light puller since Gant


Both make their return in Sep in Dallas to qualify for worlds, then onto Vegas for the big show!

I'm not sure what weight class he is competing in right now, but that Russian guy Belayev(SP?) is the freakiest puller @198-220. He pulls 800+ easier than anybody else right now at that weight.

Not sure about him, but Tony is looking for 800 at 198. As for Richard, at his peak he was number one in the entire world at 123, and should do the same at 132 as well, and is barely old enough to drink. He is looking to crack 600 as a light 132er.

Not sure why you picked those weight classes, but I have an up and comer in Mike Lane, who pulled 650 raw at 181 at a raw unity meet in Florida not too long ago. I think he going to start jumping weight classes but keep that name in mind.

Bro I picked those weight classes because these are two of the all time best pullers, and are both very close friends of mine. I am just informing everyone that the records in those classes are getting ready to fall again.

Belyaev is definatly the top puller at 198 right now, if not ever, he's pulled 837 with ease, and missed 854 on grip

Eddy Coan pulled 859 over 20 years ago at 198, that would make him the best ever. Belyaev is indeed a huge puller without question. As for Richard, I believe he will put up the best pull of any lifter in the world this year at 132 at this show, and I hope he does. Both Tony and Richard are close friends of mine. Eiseman has a great shot at 800 at this show as well, should be a great show for sure. Belyaev has superb sumo technique wow!

Tony is a beast to be sure!

Eiseman is a freak. He was built for pulling. I'd love to see him hit 800 at some point. The other up and coming 181 puller I've seen is AJ Mangum. He's just a kid (only 18?) and I saw him do 667 at WABDL Worlds last year and gave 700 a good run. He did this at a weight of about 167, so a VERY light 181 puller.

You need to look out for A.J. Mangum. He already took Tony's 181 Teen WR and looks to take his 165. As he gets older and bigger he just might give Tony a run for his money.

Hey Brandt! Whats up brother?

Magnum is a beast for sure, but remember, Tonys 165 teen record of 683 is VERY much still in tact. Tony weiged in at a light 181er as a teen and Magnum beat that record by a few pounds for a great lift, but Tonys best teen lifts were at 165. It took a great like Eiseman to beat his 181 and 198 open records as well. Tony is looking to take back the 198 record this year and then some, if Magnum shows up that would be a great showdown for sure.

At 132 I think you have to throw Doc Holloway in there. He has pulled right at 600 in a full meet with a 2 hour weigh in and drug testing. Watch out whenever he gets back from his torn ACL in Oct.

I think you really need to take a look at Tee Meyers and Tom Eiseman as 2 of the best pullers at 181/198. I beleive Tom pulled 776 and Tee pulled 767 and both of thsoe were as light 198's that can easily diet down to 181 if they wanted. That is not even counting if you add in an age coefficient as Tom is 49 (almost 50) and Tee is 52.

On a side note I would havet o say that Tom Eiseman is the great 181 to ewver live. He stood up with 800 at 181 and is the only one to ever do so. He got 2 reds, but no one really knows what for. He pulled it conventioanla nd then injures himself and switches to sumo and works himself back to right at 800 with not ACL's and 50 years old. WHo esle can compare?

Ya Doc is a monster sumo puller. Richard has his share of full meets with impressive DL's also. Richard is picking up where he left off several years ago and continue to set records. Not only is he an awesome 132er, he is light at that. He could easily make 123 and not miss a beat because he walks around at about 130. If he keeps the Eye of the Tiger he will eclipse Lamar Gant.

How about nother 198 to keep your eye on. Robert Herring pulled 725 in the 100% raw as I believe a very light 198. He is also in th emilitary and you know how that effects your training. He is training in a suit and plans to make noise at the NOTLD and get qualified for the Arnodl pro dl meet.
