Madison Square Garden, New York, New York, USA
"The bout was one of the most important since the recent ruling of the Boxing Commission on the new foul line. However, neither of the contestants wore the newly prescribed trunks, which are to show the new foul line, five inches below the belt line. There were several occasions during the bout when it was necessary for the referee to warn both fighters to keep up their punches. The prevailing opinion seems to be that the new trunks will be put in use when the present ones are worn out." New York Times. The following month Anderson was critically stabbed below the heart by Herbert Davis of Danville, a black motorist, after a traffic accident.

The Chicago Tribune had three reporters at ringside and all scored Flowers as a decisive winner. "The referee was the sole arbiter in Illinois rule (at this time). "Referee Benny Yanger said he based his decision on Walker landing the cleaner punches, and that Flowers only slapped with an open glove. Tiger also was guilty of sticking a thumb in Mickey's eyes on occasion, and also of heeling..Spectators at ringside couldn't believe it when the saw Referee Yanger hold up Walker's hand as the winner." Flowers was down in round nine. The gate was $77,137." From the Chicago Tribune, Bob Soderman.

World Middleweight Title
Opinions of observers on the outcome of this fight varied. It was evident that many people tended to count Harry's rough style against him. Regis Welsh of the Pittsburgh Post said that Harry "honestly won." Frank Getty of UP said Flowers easily won. Welsh gave Greb rounds 1,2,6,8, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15 and Flowers rounds 4, 5, 7, and 10, with rounds 3 and 9 even. Welsh asserted that the judges overreacted to the claim of Walk Miller (Flowers's manager) a few days before the fight that it was "in the bag" for Greb. He also stated that a great many persons who viewed the fight thought that Greb won. Greb, himself, said "Well, that was one fight I won if I ever won any." Gene Tunney, who was friends with both men and watched the fight from ringside, called the verdict "unjust". Referee Crowley voted for Greb as winner; Mathison and Barnes gave it to Flowers.

Most experts thought that Greb won this fight. Frank Getty of the United Press stated that "many experts figured that the worst the former champion should have had was a draw, for Greb was the stronger puncher and at times had Flowers in real trouble." Hype Igoe stated that "the decision was met with deathly silence by the crowd. To some it was a just verdict. To others it was unfair to Greb..My own tally had Greb out in front by a margin of two rounds- five for Flowers, seven for Greb and the others even." Regis Welsh of the Pittsburgh Post had Greb winning 8-5-2 on rounds. Greb did suffer a cut eyebrow in round 3, his first since he fought Bob Roper in Buffalo. Greb fought flat-footed and was wild, not in his best form. Referee Smith voted for Greb while both judges favored Flowers.

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.

Opinions about the winner varied, but the majority were for Greb. The Fremont Daily News scored for Flowers, as did the Toledo News-Bee, Toledo Blade,Columbus Citizen and Akron Press. Greb was tabbed the winner by the Fremont Daily Register, Columbus Evening Dispatch, Toledo Times, Detroit News, Sandusky Star Journal, Pittsburgh Gazette Times, Lorain Times Herald, Tiffin Advertiser, Mansfield News, Pittsburgh Post, Fostoria Daily Review, Cleveland News and Findlay Morning Republican. The Sandusky Register scored the fight a draw, but mentioned that of three rounds in which a fighter was far out in front, two belonged to Flowers. The newspaper decision from the Elyria Chronicle Telegram went to Greb. Regis Welsh, sports editor of the Pittsburgh Post, was on hand and said that 12,000 persons attended. Welsh scored it as follows: 1st round even; Flowers won the 2nd; Greb won the 3rd, 4th and 5th; Flowers got an edge in the 6th; and Greb won each of the last four rounds. Welsh described Flowers as a southpaw, "awkward, covering up, wild-swinging." For once Greb met someone as unorthodox as himself. Flowers did well for six rounds even though lacking a hard punch. After that he seemed to tire, "grew more timid as the bout wore on, and was at sea against Greb's windmill tactics, speed, and roughhouse." Afterward, Walk Miller (Flowers's manager) claimed victory, and his unrelenting publicity campaign did have the effect of making his fighter much better known.

DQ10/15
Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico
This fight ended in a riot. "Of the ten rounds fought, Flowers was credited with winning five, Carbone took three, and two were even." Flowers fouled Carbone in the third round and butted him in the face in round ten, "causing Carbone to butt him in the jaw until he went down. Carbone then tried to hit Flowers while he sat on the floor." "On his way to the dressing room, Carbone was mobbed and laid out by a flow from the butt end of a gun. Police rushed him from the arena still clad in his fighting trunks. After his wounds were dressed in a hospital, he got to El Paso safely." Boxing Blade, January 13, 1923, page 9.
