Summary

This class would be discontinued after 1996, as the International Wrestling Federation (FILA) shuffled weight limits to decrease the number of weight classes, as mandated by the IOC. The 1995 World Champion was Korean Sim Gwon-Ho, although he was expected to be challenged by the 1993-94 World Champion, Cuban Wilber Sánchez, and Russian Zafar Guliyev, who had won three of the last four European tournaments. Guliyev lost in round two to Sim and was out of contention for gold. Sánchez was upset in the semi-finals by Belarussian Aleksandr Pavlov, runner-up at the 1994 Worlds. The final between Pavlov and Sim went to overtime with Sim winning the gold medal, 4-0 at 6:44. Guliyev did get a bronze medal, defeating North Korean Kang Yong-Gyun, also by 4-0.
