George V. Finnegan (September 1881 – February 28, 1913) was an American bantamweight and flyweight boxer who competed in the early twentieth century.

He died in San Francisco, California.

Finnegan won two medals in Boxing at the 1904 Summer Olympics, a gold medal in the flyweight category and a silver medal against fellow American, Oliver Kirk in the bantamweight category in which he gained several pounds in several days.

Finnegan remains only one of four boxers in boxing history to win two different medals at the same Games.
