United States national amateur boxing bantamweight champions

Below is a list of United States national Amateur Boxing Bantamweight Champions, also known as United States Amateur Champions. The weight class was contested at 115 pounds between 1889 and 1921. It was then contested at 118 pounds between 1922 and 1951, before moving to 119 pounds, where it is currently contested. The United States National Boxing Championships bestow the title of United States Amateur Champion on amateur boxers for winning the annual national amateur boxing tournament organized by USA Boxing, the national governing body for Olympic boxing and is the United States' member organization of the International Amateur Boxing Association (AIBA). It is one of the two premier amateur boxing tournaments, the other being the National Golden Gloves Tournament, which crowns its own amateur bantamweight champion.
