Charley Morris appeared in four ABA featherweight finals between 1904-08, losing two and winning two. He beat Lynn BC’s A. J. Miner in 1904, but a hand injury received in his first bout in the 1905 Championship meant that he had to pull out of his second round bout against Harold Holmes. Miner gained revenge on Morris in the 1906 final but Morris disposed of Miner on the way to winning his second ABA title in 1907, when he beat Holmes in the final. Morris was beaten by Tom Ringer in the 1908 final and, at the Olympic Games, was beaten by his 37-year-old Great Britain team-mate Richard Gunn. Morris nearly reached his fifth ABA featherweight final in 1909, but lost to fellow Polytechnic man Bert Arnold in the semi-final.
