FormatSingle elimination tournament.

The seeding committee deemed that the Olympic final should be a repeat of the 2015 World Championship final between Azerbaijan’s Elvin Məmişzadə and Yosbany Veitía of Cuba so it came as a surprise when both men were eliminated at the quarter-final stage.

Shakhobiddin Zoirov continued the Uzbek boxing team’s run of success in Rio by taking his place in the final against the Russian fighter Misha Aloyan, a two-time world champion who had won a bronze medal in 2012. Aloyan began well and bullied his opponent through the first round but Zoirov capitalized on the over eagerness of the Russian in the second and got the decision based on his performance in a scrappy final round.

Some weeks after the Games the Fancy Bears computer hacking group published a document that revealed Aloyan had tested positive for the stimulant Tuaminoheptane. In December 2016 this was confirmed to be true when he was found to have committed an anti-doping rule violation and stripped of his medal. Aloyan appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport but this was rejected in June 2017.
