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.
