Summary

This was one of two classes in 1904 with 10 competitors (along with welterweight), which meant that [Otto Roehm] had to win four matches to win his gold medal. Roehm defeated [Rudolf Tesiny] in the final by decision. Tesiny, whose name in older records was often spelled Tesing, would win the 1905 AAU Championship in this class. Third-place went to [Al Zirkel] although there are no records of a third-place tournament or match. Roehm also competed in the welterweight class in St. Louis, winning one match but losing in the semi-finals.
