FormatSingle elimination tournament.

Vasyl Lomachenko of Ukraine had been awarded the Val Barker Trophy as the outstanding boxer of the 2008 Olympic Games and the years between Beijing and London had seen him virtually unbeatable in tournament boxing. He had won the 2009 world championship at featherweight and then in 2011 added the lightweight world title after the abolition of the featherweight division in amateur boxing had forced him to fight at 3 kgs heavier than in 2008. His route to a second Olympic gold was pretty straightforward and his biggest test, which came in a semi-final with Cuba’s Yasnier Toledo, was passed without any great alarm. Lomachenko’s opponent in the final was Han Sun-Cheol, a surprise contender from Korea. Han was no match for the Ukrainian and was comfortably outscored by a full 10 point margin.
