This competition saw one of the most controversial bouts in Olympic history, when the local Frenchman Roger Brousse and the defending Olympic champion Harry Mallin from Great Britain faced each other in the quarterfinal. Right at the end of the fight Mallin tried to complain to the Belgian referee by showing clear bite marks, that he had been bitten in his chest and shoulder. But his protest was ignored by the judges and the bout was awarded to the French boxer on points (2:1). An appeal launched by the Swedish official and IOC member Oscar Söderlund brought forward medical evidence that Mallin had been bitten. Also it turned out, that Manuel Gallardo had also complained about being bitten by Brousse in their first fight of this tournament. Brousse was disqualified and Mallin became the winner, even though the jury declared that the foul had not been intentional. French fans had to be restrained by the police from charging the ring.

Two days later the French crowd were still incensed when Mallin had to fight in the final. At the beginning Roger Brousse came to the ring in his sports dress and his fans lifted him up to ring where he wanted to fight against John Elliott. Only with the massive intervention by the police, the two British opponents were able to contest in the final.
