Default Jack "Kid" Berg and Kid Chocolate...ATGs??

Can anyone tell me anything about these two guys? Berg was featured in a Jewish Museum I visited and he seems to have been a crowd pleaser but I can't really tell from his record how good he was? Wins over Tony Canzoneri, Kid Chocolate and Billy Petrolle look good versus a 3 round KO loss for the Lightweight title to Canzoneri. Also the Jnr Welterweight title he won seems to have been fairly lightly regarded at the time.

Then there is Kid Chocolate who Berg beat a couple of times. I have read he was a superb stylist and he has good wins over champions Fidel LaBarba and Al Singer against loses to Battling Battalino, Tony Canzoneri and Frankie Klick.

Both seem very very good but a little below ATG on their records, however I am not so familiar with many of the names on their records so how good are they?
