The fight for third place ended tied at three points with Azerbaijan’s Sharif Sharifov, who was world and Olympic champion in the lower division.

However, the Caribbean athlete got a two-point action, and so it was his arm that ended up raised in the Makuhari Messe Hall, his first medal in three Olympic participations.

Salas, double runner-up of the planet, only gave up in the semifinals to the great Russian favorite Abdulrashid Sadulaev, gold medalist in Rio de Janeiro 2016 in the previous category and four-time world champion, who defeated him 4-0.
