This was the only class with no foreign entrants. Albert Oldman was a City of London policeman but was not highly regarded as a boxer prior to the 1908 Olympic tournament. The favorites were Frederick Parks, who had been ABA Champ in 1901-02 and 1905-06, and the two most recent ABA Champions, Harold Brewer (1907) and Sydney Evans (1908). But Oldman won both his matches by first-round knock-outs, fighting for less than a total of one round.
