Newspaper decision for Bartfield from Philadelphia Inquirer, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, Boston Globe, AP ("Bartfield was the aggressor throughout"). Newspaper decision for Greb from Philadelphia Public Ledger, Philadelphia Record. A draw from Robert W. Maxwell (Philadelphia Evening Public Ledger and The Evening Telegraph).
The Pittsburgh Post reported that three newspaper reporters favored Greb, two voted for Bartfield, one called it a draw. In the first round Bartfield dropped Greb to his knees with a right to the body. Harry was unable to get back on track and lost the round. Greb won the second, but Bartfield fought off Harry's rushes, split his lip, and won the 3rd round. The fourth and fifth were closely fought, most observers giving them to Greb, who was the aggressor. Bartfield outpunched Greb in the 6th. Greb was in the navy and appeared less well trained than usual.

The Toledo News-Bee gave 7 rounds to Greb and 3 to Bartfield, the other 5 being even. In round 10 Bartfield scored a flash knockdown when a light punch knocked his opponent down when the latter was off-balance. Greb was up at the referee's count of one.
The Pittsburgh Post reported that Greb was the complete master in the third meeting of the two fighters, winning 13 rounds and had Bartfield in distress in the 15th. Harry set a terrific pace. He jabbed Bartfield repeatedly and used the one-two to good effect. He handled Bartfield well in the infighting (where the soldier gave him trouble in Pittsburgh). It was an open-air fight before a large crowd.

referee: Eddie Kennedy
"Greb today carried the marks of his hardest ring battle, following his fight with 'Soldier' Bartfield at Forbes field last night. After losing the first six rounds and pulling it to a draw in the seventh, Bartfield gathered a lot of pep and carried off all honors in the last three." (Daily Northwestern) The description in the Pittsburgh Post agreed with this except that it said that Greb won the tenth round even though Bartfield twice deliberately butted him in the chest. Greb won clearly but Bartfield gave him a very good scrap in a fight that involved thrilling exchanges.

Bartfield won the newspaper decision according to both the Buffalo Boxing Record and the Pittsburgh Post. According to the Post, it was a stormy, rough battle. Greb overpowered his man in the clinches and forced Bartfield to the ropes. "But he could not even up the soldier's wonderful early round battling and hard hitting." Bartfield stood and punched back when Greb attacked. Evidently Greb did not have the advantage of quickness and speed that he usually enjoyed. It was a close battle and opinions were somewhat divided. Dan McKetrick, Bartfield's manager, rushed to Western Union and sent out a phony report that Bartfield had won every round!
