Zou Shiming (China) def. Paddy Barnes (Ireland), 15-15 on countback: Zou is defending his '08 gold with sort of a Ric Flair title reign in London, barely escaping by the skin of his teeth in each fight. The good news for Barnes is that he scored 15 more points here than he did when they met in the semis in 2008, while Zou was held to the same 15. So Barnes was a +15 here, while Zou was a 0, and Zou still won. Barnes settles for a second bronze medal, while Zou moves on and tries to go for a second gold.

Kaeo Pongprayoon (Thailand) def. David Ayrapetyan (Russia), 13-12: Another upset for the Thai, as he takes down the highly-regarded Ayrapetyan and now has a chance to complete an incredible little run if he can knock off Zou in what should be a great final between a fading but still top-tier veteran and what appears to be a rising star.
