"The decision..though narrow, was loudly acclaimed by the public, and has been accepted by the Chilean press." Godoy was the aggressor but never had Loughran in any danger of a knockout. It was not a thrilling battle because Loughran concentrated on defence. Afterward, Loughran expressed surprise at not receiving the decision, and said he won more easily than earlier, in the two Buenos Aires fights between the two men. The source of the clipping is not given, but the reporter gave Godoy rounds one, two, four, six, seven, and eight, the fifth was even, and Loughran took rounds three, nine, and ten. This fight was stated to be a 10-rounder, not twelve as shown here previously.

The referee stopped the bout in the 6th round and awarded it to Impellitiere because of a cut on Loughran's lip. Loughran protested while 6000 onlookers stormed. Brigadier General John S. Phelan, chairman of the State Athletic Commission, overruled the intervention and shouted to Hartley to have the bout resume. (James P. Dawson, New York Times)

He was reported to have been the very first heavyweight from the college ranks to have won a main bout at the Garden. His record was reported to be 24 KOs in 27 fights immediately after this bout, having himself been knocked down only once. New York Times

A "slashing bout" with "scarcely a dull moment". Loughran was down in the 6th and 8th rounds but "staged a comeback in the 9th and 10th and was shooting punches from every angle at the final bell". One judge voted for each fighter and the referee then called it a draw. This decision was changed the following day by the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission when the referee found that he had miscounted his card. He gave the decision to Loughran 4 - 3, with three rounds even. (New York Times)

The referee's round scoring was not announced, but Regis Welsh of the Pittsburgh Post gave Greb 5 rounds, Loughran 3, and 2 even. The first round was even, Greb won the 2nd, Tommy the 3rd, Greb the 4th and 5th. Loughran almost floored Greb with a wicked right in the 5th, but Greb fought back with a terrific flurry and kept Tommy from following up on his advantage. Loughran won the 6th and 8th rounds and the seventh was even. Greb won the 9th and 10th. The impression of onlookers was that Greb was not quite the fighter he had been.

The Pittsburgh Post reported that Loughran gave Greb a boxing lesson for the first three rounds, punishing him with a left jab and blocking his punches. For the next 9 rounds, Greb overwhelmed Tommy and built up a good lead, especially with his in-fighting. In the last three rounds, Loughran opened up a strong body attack that gave Harry trouble, but not enough to overcome his big lead.

Greb swarmed all over Tommy and wouldn't let him box in his standup style. Loughran looked good in flashes. Red Mason worked in Greb's corner.

"Loughran, a great fighter, tried hard, fought well, and at times proved a capable foeman, and it was not until the fifth round that Greb really had an advantage." For five rounds, Loughran tied up Greb's body attack. Using a standup style, he cut Greb's left eye and worked him into some tough spots. But he tired in the last three rounds, and Greb mounted his windmill attack to earn victory."
