During the preliminary rounds of the 1984 Olympics, Redžepovski scored a controversial win over Australia's Jeff Fenech, a future World Champion in three weight divisions. Fenech was initially given the decision, but after intervention by the Olympic Boxing Committee and a total recount, the decision was reversed with Redžepovski being awarded the win. Many of the other boxers and those in the press felt that Fenech had been unfairly robbed of a chance to win an Olympic medal and most boxing writers noted how political amateur boxing was, especially at the Olympic Games.[citation needed]
