Burman won the newspaper decision (Philadelphia Record). However the Philadelphia Public Ledger (Paul Zabala) had Murray winning and the Inquirer (Jack Kincaid) called it a draw.
Burman's supposed fight with Johnny Mealey on February 21 appears to be a duplication of this fight. (Burman-Mealey appeared in IBRO #54, page 80, source Jack Hasson, Burman supposedly winning a newspaper decision in 6 rounds. But it is not mentioned in either the Record, Public Ledger, or Inquirer, and has been deleted.)
