Newspaper decision from the Pittsburgh Post. "Officials at the Northern club today began planning for another bout between Frank Klaus and Billy Berger, who last night put up the best scrap that has been seen in Pittsburgh in a decade. Throughout the six rounds it was a slam bang affair, Klaus forcing the fighting but taking by far the most punishment." (Lincoln Evening News. Jim Jab of The Pittsburgh Press gave Berger a slight shade, though he reported Berger as taking the most punishment, his eye cut and bleeding while Klaus "was not marked to any serious extent".
