United States national amateur boxing featherweight champions

Below is a list of National Amateur Boxing Featherweight Champions, also known as United States Amateur Champions, along with the state or region which they represented. The weight class was contested at 125 pounds between 1889 and 1921. It was then contested at 126 pounds between 1922 and 1951, before returning to 125 pounds in 1952; which it is currently contested at. 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 featherweight champion.
