Madison Square Garden, New York, New York, USAWSD1515
referee: Willie Lewis | judge: Charles F. Mathison | judge: Joe Agnello
World Lightweight Title
World Jr. Welterweight Title
Canzoneri won custody of the "Lonsdale Belt originally awarded to Freddie Welsh."
"[O]ne of the noisiest and most disorderly demonstrations the arena ever has witnessed after one of the greatest lightweight championship battles in local ring annals." New York Times Mathison voted for Chocolate. Had Canzoneri, a former Featherweight champion, made 130 lbs for this bout, he would have been awarded Kid Chocolate's Jr. Lightweight title as well and would then have become the first four-division champion in history.

The bout was originally scheduled to be staged in London, England, where the championship would have changed hands when Berg went to the floor from a foul blow in the eighth round. As it was, under NYSAC rules, a fighter could not win or lose on a foul, although 18,000 fans shouted protests. Referee Haley counted over Berg as though he had been sent to the canvas by a legitimate blow. Berg was also down for "8" in the first round.
