Tulane Arena, New Orleans, Louisiana, USALKO915
referee: Al Wambsgans
Reported in the New Orleans Times-Picayune (Jack Kincaid).More than 5,000 fans jammed into the Tulane Arena. By the fifth round it was clear that Chip was no match for Littleton. Finally a terrific right to the chin made Joe do a jack-knife dive into the canvas. He tried to get up but was counted out by Referee Al Wambsgans.

1919-07-24Harry Greb39-2-1
Idora Park, Youngstown, Ohio, USALNWS1212
referee: M.J. Hale
"Greb landed effective blows at will and at no time was in danger." (Fort Wayne News and Sentinel) The Pittsburgh Post said that Harry won ten rounds, and Chip two (the 5th and 6th when he hurt Harry). Otherwise Greb ovrwhelmed Joe with a withering barrage. Chip marched in and did his best, but his foot and hand speed was so much slower than Greb's that his punches were mostly futile. Greb eased up in the last three rounds and let Chip stay the limit, but Joe got a "nice beating."...Another account agreed and noted that Greb did not display standard ring form. "He has a style and system all his own and today there is not another boxer in the country who even imitates him, much less practices his methods."

1913-11-29Harry Greb2-0-0
Old City Hall, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USAWKO26
referee: Tom Bodkins
Richard Guy (Pittsburgh Gazette Times) reported "In the semi-final Joe Chip knocked out Harry Greb with a right hook to the jaw in the second round. While Greb was down his manager, Red Mason, spit water on him in the hopes of reviving him. Seeing this move Chip rushed to the ropes and threatened Mason."
Pittsburgh Post on December 1 said "Harry Greb was around yesterday without a scratch ready to meet anyone at or near the welterweight limit. Greb has no excuses to offer, except that he met a better man and hereafter says he will not go out of his class and meet a man who weighed 156 pounds in the afternoon, while Greb only scaled 142."
