referee: Frank Mills
Cincinnati Enquirer. This was a referee's decision. Harry won 9 rounds and the third round was even. McCoy took "an awful beating" but stood up to the punishment well. Greb was his usual aggressive, tireless self despite his recent illness. The report called him "the most popular fighter that ever stepped into a local (Cincinnati) ring."

1917-04-30Harry Greb15-2-0
Exposition Hall, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USALNWS1010
referee: Jimmy McAvoy
Greb won the newspaper decision according to the Pittsburgh Post. This was the first 10-rounder held in Pittsburgh under the new law. Both men weighed below the middleweight limit. "Greb won every round..Never did he fight an easier opponent. And never did he fight a more determined and ferocious battle..Greb did everything imaginable to McCoy. He hit him enough times to sink a fleet of gunboats..Many times..Greb pumped in stiff punches in such profusion that it seemed impossible that McCoy could stand the gaff." It was a slaughter. Other than a swinging left, McCoy had no weapons, and Greb had no difficulty avoiding his left. McCoy appeared as a third-rater who survived by grabbing and by ruggedness and gameness. He backed away throughout. Greb went all out for a knockout in the tend, battering McCoy without mercy, but to no avail.

Time: 1:55 / McCoy was the first southpaw to win a World Title. Chip's title was "at risk" because McCoy was below the middleweight limit (although Chip was not). Actually, McCoy never was widely recognized as world champion at the time, judging from newspaper coverage and comment in New York, Pittsburgh, Boston, and other cities.
