James Bollinger boxed in the lightweight class at the 1904 Olympics, but entered under the name Carroll Burton, who was a well-known St. Louis boxer. Bollinger/Burton won his quarter-final bout against [Peter Sturholdt] but when his identity was then revealed, Bollinger/Burton was disqualified and Sturholdt went on to the semi-finals. Bollinger/Burton was also entered in the featherweight class, but did not start, presumably because his ruse had been exposed.
