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.
