The 1991 World Champion was Gwon Deog-Yong but he lost his first two matches and was eliminated. The remaining favorite was Unified Team wrestler [Oleg Kucherenko], World Champion in 1989-90, but the two-time defending gold medalist, Italian Vincenzo Maenza, was also competing again. Both went undefeated through their groups, while in Group B, Iran’s Majid Reza Simkhah Asil also was undefeated through five rounds but then was injured and had to withdraw, and did not face Maenza. In the final, Kucherenko took a 3-0 lead after five seconds and then played defense the rest of the way to win the gold medal. Cuba’s Wilber Sánchez won the bronze medal by defeating German Fuat Yildiz on points, 5-0.
