There was only one non-British competitor, Pierre Mazior of France. Most of the top British bantams were present. Henry Perry had been Amateur Boxing Association (ABA) champion in 1903-1904, while William Webb won that title in 1905 and 1910, and John Condon would win it in 1909. Henry Thomas won two decisions to take the gold medal, receiving a bye in the semi-finals. He was also ABA Champion in 1908. Thomas turned professional in 1909 and settled in the United States. He fought there and in Australia until his retirement in 1916.
