Jack Egan’s real name was Frank Floyd and by the rules of the AAU it was illegal to fight under an assumed name. In November 1905 the AAU disqualified Egan from all AAU competitions and he had to return all his prizes including the silver medal from the lightweight competition and the bronze medal from the welterweight event.
