Russian youngster Khasan Khalmurzaev (RUS) won an all-Russian -81kg final as two-time World Judo Masters bronze medallist Sirazhudin Magomedov (RUS) lost out. Khalmurzaev and Magomedov traded shido penalties for passivity as both men lacked purpose before the former tapped out his more experienced teammate with a juji-gatame.

In the first semi-final MAGOMEDOV denied the hosts a finalist as Laszlo CSOKNYAI (HUN) fell by a buzzer-beating waza-ari while at the same stage KHALMURZAEV defeated world bronze medallist Alain SCHMITT (FRA) on shido penalties.
  
The first bronze medal was won by Frenchman SCHMITT who swept past Szabolcs KRIZSAN (HUN) by ippon after two minutes. The second bronze medal went to Roman MOUSTOPOULOS (GRE) as Hungary suffered another near miss when Laszlo CSOKNYAI (HUN) scored a yuko in the last second from a determined uchi-mata effort.
