The Detroit Free Press (Herb Goldman) gave the newspaper decision to Block, noting that Chip was no longer the fighter that he had been. "Generalship kept Chip on his feet against the wicked attack of the local middleweight." Block was overly respectful of Chip in the early rounds but after hurting George in round five he he took control.

But according to the Star, Chip landed shots that had enough steam to stop most men, although they had "no effect on Mike".

(Indianapolis Star) According to the Pittsburgh Post, Greb won the first round easily, Chip the second with jabs, and Greb took the 34rd, 4th, and 5th. The 6th and 7th were even. Greb hurt Chip in the 8th with a right cross and followed up with a succession of body blows. Chip was again in bad trouble in the 9th. He tried to rally in the 10th and went for a knockout but Greb outfought him and so won decisively.

Greb "further dimmed the star of George Chip." (Sandusky Star Journal) The Pittsburgh Post reported that Greb won clearly, but had a tough battle. It was an excellent fight before a crowd of 4,000. Chip was the aggressor in the early rounds, but Greb took that role in the last five. Greb threw more punches, landed more,and did damage. Chip fought very well and was the harder hitter. The Post had Greb winning seven rounds, including four of the last five. Sportswriter Harry Keck said it that was one of the best fights seen in Pittsburgh in years. There were no knockdowns but Chip was in trouble in round four from a right to the jaw.

Chip won the newspaper decision according to both the New Castle News and the Pittsburgh Post. While the News headlined "Greb proves master of hanging on and shows little else" the Post reported : "The aggressive, never-say-die spirit the former titleholder displayed in keeping after his nimble opponent earned him the victory in the last half of the encounter. The heat and exertion seemed to bother the Pittsburgher more.." The Post gave Greb the 1st, 3rd, and 5th rounds and Chip the others, with the 2nd and 4th being very close.

Chip won the newspaper decision according to the Pittsburgh Post. The Pittsburgh Press and Pittsburgh Gazette Times scored it a draw. The Gazette Times stated that "to award the fight to Chip would be taking too much away from Greb, who is entitled much consideration for his aggressiveness and boxing." According to the Post this fight was not nearly as exciting as some of Greb's other battles. Greb seemed nervous and didn't really fight in his usual style until the last two rounds. Also, he held a lot. Chip's big round was the fourth when he had Greb nearly out after connecting with a hard left cross, squarely to the mouth...Bill Paxton, in "Fearless Harry Greb," lists this fight as a draw.

Actually, McCoy never was widely recognized as world champion at the time, judging from newspaper coverage and comment in New York, Pittsburgh, Boston, and other cities.
