1925-12-11 Paul Berlenbach w pts 15 Jack Delaney, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - USA/GB. Referee: Ed Purdy. Having already beaten Berlenbach (173½) inside four rounds, there was no doubt that Delaney (166) felt he could repeat that win and he made a solid start before dropping his former victim in the fourth following a crashing right-hand to the jaw. Up at ‘three’, Berlenbach fell over again, obviously dazed, before taking an ‘eight’ count. Strangely, Delaney let the beaten champion off the hook as he failed to go in to finish the job and from the eighth onwards Berlenbach steadily gained ground to win the majority decision. Despite losing, Delaney wanted his revenge and following wins over Mike McTigue (w co 4 on 15 March 1926 at Madison Square Garden) and Maxie Rosenbloom (w pts 10 on 22 March 1926 at The Arena, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) he quickly earned himself a return.
