World Middleweight Champion
On November 1, 1938, Krieger won the National Boxing Association World Middleweight Championship in a 15-round majority decision over titleholder Al Hostak. Kreiger fought inside Hostak, and did very effective body work against his opponent.
Hostak regained the championship on June 27, 1939. In his rematch Kreiger struggled to make weight. By the account of The Seattle Post-Intelligencer—he was a mere shadow of the fighter who had won the title. Hostak easily won, knocking him down four times before knocking him out in the fourth to regain the title. Both fights were in Seattle, Washington.
