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

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?

Both are ATG's
