Abdulhamidov was involved in a controversial bout during the 2012 games. He was initially declared the winner in his second fight against Satoshi Shimizu of Japan due to controversial judging and refereeing. At the beginning of the third round, he was leading by 7 points; however, in the last 2 minutes of that round, Abdulhamidov began to tire. Shimizu repeatedly knocked him down, 6 times in total. AIBA officially overturned the ruling after an appeal by the Japanese Coach stating that Abdulhamidov should have been given at least 3 warnings and therefore disqualified. Shimizu went on to take the bronze medal.
