World Light Heavyweight Title
(23,000 at the new Madison Square Garden): "Floored for a count of three in the fourth and punched groggy in the sixth and seventh, Berlenbach came back in the last six rounds with a stirring rally which saved for him the title he wrested from Mike McTigue. His margin of victory was close, however, for newspapermen at ringside gave him only seven rounds to six for the challenger while two were even.... But the outstanding factor in his success was indomitable courage in the face of almost certain defeat." (AP)
