Neither of the two contenders in the other semi-final was eligible to fight him
Josipovic was left without an opponent after referee Gligorije Novicic of Yugoslavia had disqualified Evander Holyfield in the semi-final for knocking out Kevin Barry as he yelled "break". Barry could not compete because of the knock-out.
