Medals: 1 Gold (1 Total)
Aureliano Bolognesi was the Italian lightweight champion of 1951 and 1952 coming into the Helsinki Games. In his first match, he faced the tournament favourite [Bobby Bickle], and beat him in a close fight in a 2-1 decision. Winning his next three bouts as well, Bolognesi returned home with the gold medal. With an excellent amateur record (just 1 defeat and 4 draws in 151 fights), he turned pro. His career was mostly confined to Italy, and he wound up with 17 wins in 21 fights.
