NWS10/10
Southside Market House, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
Greb won the newspaper decision. (Coshocton Tribune) The Pittsburgh Post gave Greb 9 of the 10 rounds, losing only the 4th. Greb toyed with Kramer for 7 rounds, hitting him a lot but not trying to punish him. The referee started to stop it at the end of the seventh, but the crowd protested. Greb got down to work in the last two rounds and severely punished Kramer, but couldn't stop him. Kramer, to his credit, always did his best, although badly outclassed. As to Greb, he didn't take the fight seriously until the promoter and referee got on him. Possibly he wanted to spare his hands.

Greb won the newspaper decision according to the Philadelphia Public Ledger (Paul Zabala), Philadelphia Record, and the Pittsburgh Post. Kramer gave Greb a lot of trouble in the first four rounds, landing short, hard smashes to the head. Greb was wild in his punches. Harry staged a sensational rally in the 5th and 6th, battering Kramer around the ring with a two-fisted attack. He had the edge at the end but it was a pretty close call for him.
