The flyweight was the lightest boxing weight class held as part of the Boxing at the 1904 Summer Olympics programme. The competition was held on September 22, 1904. It was the first time the event, like all other boxing events, was held in Olympic competition.

Flyweights had to be less than 47.6 kilograms. There were only two entrants in this competition; allegedly, Burke was allowed to compete despite weighing in at 49 kilograms for the bout, 1.4 kilograms over the weight limit.
