The favorite was Bulgarian Kirkor Kirkorov, the 1991 World and 1989 European Champion who had been runner-up at the 1989 Worlds. But he lost in the first round against German Andreas Tews, the 1988 Olympic flyweight silver medalist, who had also been 1987 European flyweight champion. In the quarters, Tews faced another top challenger, North Korea's Park Deok-Gyu, who had lost the final match to Kirkorov at the 1991 Worlds. In the end Tews won the gold medal, defeating the home favorite Faustino Reyes in the final, 16-7.
One 1992 featherweight bronze medal was won by Algeria's Hocine Soltani, who lost his semi to Tews. He would return in 1996 and win an Olympic gold as a lightweight, and was the only 1992 medalist in this class to turn professional, in 1998. But he only fought four times as a pro, winning each time, and retiring in 2000. In unexplained circumstances, he was found dead near Marseilles, France in March 2002.
