Summary

The final came down to Bohumil Nemeček of Czechoslovakia against Ghana's Ike Quartey, with Nemeček winning a unanimous decision. Nemeček had a long amateur career, winning gold as a welterweight at the 1967 European Championships, after winning a bronze in that class in 1963. Quartey later won the 1962 British Empire and Commonwealth Games gold medal. His half-brother, also named [Ike Quartey], later fought at the 1988 Olympics – their father had 27 children by five wives – and won the WBA welterweight title in 1994.
