1926-06-10 Paul Berlenbach w pts 15 Young Stribling, Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NYC, New York, USA - USA/GB. Referee: Jim Crowley. A disappointing fight saw a listless Berlenbach (174½) hold on to his title by a unanimous decision, mainly because Stribling (171) did not wish to mix it at close quarters and made very little effort to win, being content to escape unscathed. Before the final bell, Stribling’s father pleaded with his son to give it one last go, but even that couldn’t goad him into action and the contest merely ran its course. Having abstained from recognising a world light-heavyweight champion since stripping Battling Siki, the members of the IBU voted at their conference in July to accept the winner of the forthcoming Berlenbach v Jack Delaney contest as the titleholder.

Before the final bell, Stribling’s father pleaded with his son to give it one last go, but even that could not goad him into action and the contest merely ran its course.

Having abstained from recognising a world light heavyweight champion since stripping Battling Siki, the members of the IBU voted at their conference in July to accept the winner of the forthcoming Berlenbach v Jack Delaney contest as the titleholder.
