Cuban Roniel Iglesias had improved on his Olympic silver medal by winning the World amateur title in 2009 but a disappointing showing at the next World Championships left him unseeded for the London Olympics. This had the effect of forcing a meeting between Iglesias and the man who had replaced him as world champion, Éverton Lopes of Brazil, in the round of 16 rather than later in the competition. Iglesias was a comfortable winner and had little further difficulty in moving through to the final. In the other half of the draw Denys Berinchyk made up on his lack of defence by relying on his reserves of stamina and a relentless, if not stylish, method of attack. A year earlier Berinchyk had been the man who ended the Cuban’s dreams of a second world title by winning a narrow points victory in a first round tie but here the tables were turned in Iglesias’ favour. The Cuban took centre ring and used his ring craft to good use whilst avoiding the onrushing Ukrainian to claim the Olympic title.
