Two days before this bout, Wiggins was badly beaten and jailed by local police -- after his vehicle had struck a police car and he then knocked down the officer who was attempting to arrest him. Wiggins was charged with drunkenness, driving under the influence, resisting arrest, assault & battery, failure to stop after an accident, and vagrancy.

This was decided by the decision of Referee Earl Croshaw. It was a slow and uninteresting fight and Wiggins incurred the fans's displeasure by not scoring a knockout. He won 6 of the rounds and had Anderson in trouble in the latter part of the fight.

The newspaper decision of the Chicago Tribune was a win for Wiggins. (The account of the fight didn't appear until the issue of October 29.) Flowers didn't do much fighting in the first five rounds and got well behind. He worked harder in the last five but Wiggins fought a smart fight and "countered punch for punch." The Tribune had Wiggins winning six rounds, Flowers three, and one even. A report of a draw went out over the wires, but Flowers's manager, Walk Miller, was famous for making false claims after fights, and probably sent out the report himself.

Newspaper win for Greb (World News)and also according to the Chicago Tribune. According to the Grand Rapids Herald it was an exhibition "of splendid scientific boxing," Greb winning seven of the ten rounds. Wiggins landed some solid body blows, but as usual Greb landed far more punches than his opponent. He was so much faster afoot than Wiggins that the club physician compared him to a horse, whereas Wiggins appeared to be as slow comparatively as a cow. After the fight Wiggins admitted that Greb was "too fast and slippery" for him.

Harry won 5 rounds, Wiggins four, and one was even. Wiggins hit Greb low at least 10 times and there was a lot of elbowing and butting. The Post gives no further details.

Reported in the New Orleans Times-Picayune (Jack Kincaid).
"In Littleton..Wiggins met a buzz saw whose punches he learned to respect almost from the tap of the opening gong., when 'Happy' buried a right in his midsection. From then on to the end of the battle, Wiggins avoided those body punches as if they meant death, jumping back gingerly from the clinches." Littleton dominated the fight for the first eleven rounds but tired, and Wiggins came on in the last four. Littleton deserved the decision, however. Wiggins claimed that he was weakened by having to make weight, coming in at two pounds less than the 165 that was required. It was a very good fight, held before 8,000 fans.

Newspaper draw from the South Bend News-Times, as stated prominently at the head of the sports page. Going into the tenth round, "Greb looked like the sure winner." Wiggins put on a rally in the tenth, causing the News-Times to call the fight a draw. However, the round-by-round description (see below), casts this view into serious doubt. Rounds one to four: "Harry clearly outpointed and outslugged (Chuck) in addition to excelling at the infighting." Round five: This was a classic slugfest, apparently close enough to call even. Round six and seven: Greb punished Wiggins, who continued to put up a good fight. Round eight: even. Round nine: "Easily Greb's round." Round ten: Wiggins fought well as "Chuck tried to retrieve the ground lost earlier in the fight. Greb came back strong in the last two minutes, as the two slugged it out. Thus, it is doubtful (from the paper's own account) that Wiggins won more than one round, with a couple even.

Newspaper win for Greb according to the Pittsburgh Post which reported that "Greb outfought, outgeneraled, and outguessed Wiggins from the start." Greb went easy on Wiggins at first until the crowd began to shout its disapproval. Then he opened up and "battered Wiggins all around the ring, jabbed him with rights and lefts and easily avoided Chuck's wild rushes." In short, Greb had an easy time. He had originally been slated to meet Ted Block. The Detroit News considered Greb's showing to be a disappointment. "Greb could have put Wiggins away in the first round but held back, missing openings, standing off, slowing up his punches. He danced and tapped, tapped and danced, while Wiggins did little more than cover up." It seems probable that there was an agreement made before the fight to the effect that Greb would go easy on Wiggins if he would substitute for Ted Block.

Newspaper decision from the Indianapolis Star. According to the Toledo News-Bee (Herb Goldman), Wiggins "can't hit, but he's mighty clever and as fast as lightning. He has a beautiful bright left hand, which was in Celmars' face practically every second of the 30 minutes of scrapping." It was a rough fight, with a lot of butting, which resulted in cuts and bleeding for both.

"The main go was a scheduled eight-round affair between Young Halstead and Chuck Wiggins, and it was cut to six rounds because of the heat. The welterweights were about even on points." (Indianapolis Star)
