1917-01-01Harry Greb9-2-0
Power Auditorium, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USALNWS66
referee: Eddie Kennedy
Greb won the newspaper decision according to the Pittsburgh Post. Greb fought his usual busy, tearaway style. Borrell ws kept so busy on the defense that he didn't land enough blows. However, he made Greb miss a great deal, and landed well whenever he had the opportunity. Borrell won the first round, as Greb appeared tentative (apparently remembering the trouble Borrell had given him in the past). Harry won the remaining five, the second and sixth being his best. Borrell was groggy in the 6th and was jarred badly in the 2nd and 4th. Greb won the 3rd and 5th by small margins.
