There were three entrants in this class with the final coming down to [George Mehnert] winning a decision over [Gustav Bauer] in the final. Mehnert had also won the AAU Championship in this class in 1903. Bauer would win the title from 1905-07, when Mehnert moved up in weight and was the bantamweight champion with Mehnert winning again as a flyweight in 1908. That qualified Mehnert for the 1908 Olympics, and he defended his gold medal there, one of only two 1904 Olympic champions who competed in London, along with [Jack Niflot].
