Summary

Bulgarian Khasan Isaev came in as the heavy favorite, having won the World Championship in 1974-75 and the European Championships in 1973 and 1975. However he was beaten in round four by Soviet Roman Dmitriyev, the defending gold medalist. Isaev, Dmitriyev, and Japan’s Akira Kudo advanced to the final, where Kudo and Dmitriyev met, only to see them both disqualified for passivity. This gave the gold medal to Isaev, despite his loss to Dmitriyev, with Kudo taking bronze.
