Holyfield was controversially disqualified for punching Barry after what seemed to be a stop. However, on a replay it is seen that the referee stopped before his punches.[1][2]

Final

Under IABA health regulation Barry was not allowed to box for 28 days, so he scratched from the final.[2] During the medal ceremony, Josipović shared the highest step of the podium with Holyfield and raised his hand, thus ackonwledging that Evander was the real winner.[3]
