Billed as a world title fight and recognised as such by the Montreal Boxing Commission who recommended that the NBA revive the weight class, Berger (139¾), putting two defeats at the hands of Ramey (132¼) behind him scored three knockdowns over his old foe to secure a unanimous points victory. Although his game plan was carefully thought through, he was occasionally drawn on to punches by the wily Ramey, but scored effectively himself with counter punches and ultimately had a little too much power for the American.
