4/10
  
referee: Leo Shea
Brennan was badly out-of-shape, with "stomach and back well rounded out with fat." Miske won the first two rounds easily. Brennan rallied a little in the third, but then "Miske drive home a wicked left to the mouth. Brennan reeled." He was then knocked down and out of the ring from a series of blows, but rolled back into the ring. The gong sounded when the count reached five. In the fourth Miske soon landed a hard right to the jaw and Brennan went down for the count.

The Pittsburgh Post reported that Greb won 8 of the 10 rounds before the largest crowd in the history of Pittsburgh boxing. The 10th round was even and Miske won the 7th with vicious infighting. Neither fighter was ever in danger of a knockout but it was a grueling affair. Greb was the aggressor throughout. "It was one of those typical Greb fights, with (Harry) rushing in..and baffling his opponent with the very speed and frequency of his attacks." Greb left the ring unmarked, but Miske's face was puffed.

Newspaper decision for Dempsey from Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Public Ledger, Indianapolis Star.
"Jack Dempsey won the popular decision from Billy Miske of St. Paul in a slow six-round bout here today at a Thanksgiving Day matinee. Only half a dozen hard blows were landed during the fight. There was scarcely any action in the first two rounds, but in the third Miske halted Dempsey with an uppercut to the jaw which gave him the advantage in this round. After this the bout was all in Dempsey's favor, the St. Paul man frequently holding in order to save himself from punishment." (Indianapolis Star)

Newspaper decision from the Pittsburgh Post. The Post reported that Miske landed the two hardest blows of the fight, one in the 6th and one in the 9th. "Greb carried the fighting at all stages and dictates the terms upon which they met." Miske finished well, but Greb's early attack had tired Billy so that he couldn't take advantage of the opportunity. Sportswriter Harry Keck of the post gave Greb six rounds, Miske three rounds, and one even. Another Post writer, Florent Gibson, gave Greb five rounds, Miske three, and two even. Both writers thought that Greb's two best rounds were the fifth and eighth. It was a hard fight, but not a sensational one. According to wire service reports, although Greb led through much of the first 8 rounds, he took a tremendous beating from Miske in rounds 9 and 10. Attendance 2,000.

"Neither fighter gained a commanding lead and a poor draw was the general verdict. Miske outboxed Dempsey most of the fight with the exception of the seventh round, when Dempsey, sinking a hard left into Miske's stomach and putting a right to the jaw, evened up the battle. Up to that time Miske had claimed three rounds and Dempsey two and one was a draw. Miske was plainly worried in the seventh but he held his own the rest of the way. The fight was without a spectacular feature. Miske continually resorted to infighting and managed to get inside most of Dempsey's blows. Miske landed one hard blow in the fight, a right cross in the third round. Dempsey scored in the second, third and seventh rounds and his supporters seemingly were inclined to give him a shade for this work. On the other hand those who gave Miske a shade based their verdicts on the fact that he made Dempsey miss many blows." (Indianapolis Star) According to George Blair, the St. Paul Pioneer-Press reported Miske to be the winner. $13,400 gate.

Newspaper reports disagreed as to the winner, but the Brooklyn Daily Eagle and New York Evening Telegram both favored Miske.

"Followers of the game in these parts are satisfied that there is scarcely a hair's difference in the punching power or the ability to absorb punishment between the two. Their battle was an ideal draw. Scaling at 174 pounds, Miske crawled through the ropes just three quarters of a pound heavier than Dillon and in the course of ten rounds there was little if any difference in the two lads from a fighting standpoint. Miske gave Dillon nearly all he had during the first six rounds and the Hoosier found the going tough, but fought back with the ferocity of a Sierra bobcat and weathered the storm. From the seventh round on Dillon had more snap to his punches and Miske seemed a trifle slow at times. Miske's best round was the third and it looked mighty stormy for Dillon. The St.Paul lad rained blows at the Hoosier from every angle and Dillon's great arms, bowed about his head and midriff, saved him from severe punishment. But Dillon showed his stamina by coming back in the seventh round. He backed Miske around the ring with a shower of punches and had him swinging wild and trying to hold on. This round evened up the battle and the last three rounds were as even as two and two." (Lima Times Democrat)

"Jack Dillon, Indianapolis light heavyweight, easily outpointed Billy Miske of St.Paul, in a ten round no decision fight, in the opinion of a majority of newspaper representatives at the ringside. The bout was tame throughout and was characterized by much clinching. Dillon showed aggressiveness all way and landed the cleaner and heavier blows." (Daily Northwestern)

There was no boxing in St. Paul or Minneapolis that year. Most, or all, of Miske's early fights were in Superior and Hudson, both in Wisconsin (near Minnesota border). A program was held on the date shown, but needs to be checked.
