Report from the Pittsburgh Post: There is no indication that this was a title fight. Greb won every round easily. In the closing rounds. Harry was landing ten blows for every one that Sage got through. There was a capacity crowd on hand and they cheered every punch that Sage landed. Greb fought at top speed and "fully lived up to his name of being the Pittsburgh whirlwind." Sage was always trying and was unmarked at the end except for swollen lips.
