Tulane Arena, New Orleans, Louisiana, USALPTS2020
From the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Chip built up a big lead over the first 15 rounds, but then ran out of gas and had to survive a big rally by Brown.
1920-03-25Harry Greb42-2-1
Stockyards Stadium, Denver, Colorado, USALPTS1212
Rick Ricketson in the Denver Post said that Greb won the referee's decision. "Greb is all his advance-advertising indicated. He steps about more like a bantam than a light-heavyweight. His left is up and down, side and straight, always in action, and his right shoots like a piston. Against Brown, Greb was never in danger. The Greek rallied strong and often, but Harry's superiority was marked. Brown showed best at infighting, although Greb held his own, even at this style of battle. One round might be said to be a repitition (sic) of every other. Brown was aggressive, rushed and swung, and in return Greb countered, ducked, jabbed and popped..True, the Greek never had a round with the cleverer and headier miller from Smokey City. But he forced Greb to step.."

1919-11-17Harry Greb40-2-1
Canton Auditorium, Canton, Ohio, USALNWS1212
Newspaper decision from the Massillon Evening Independent, which reported that Greb was 'just about the fastest boxer, both on his feet and with his fists, that has ever showed his wares to the boxing fraternity of Stark county.' Brown took a terrific pasting and was nearly knocked out in round eight, covering up thereafter. Greb was as busy as ever and his recently damaged hand held up well.

1919-07-16Harry Greb39-2-1
Wheeling Park, Wheeling, West Virginia, USALNWS1010
Greb won the newspaper decision. (Sandusky Register) The Pittsburgh Post said that Greb made an uncharacteristic slow start and the first three rounds were even. In the 4th, Brown roughed up Harry inside and on the ropes that they both fell out of the ring. That riled Harry and he went to work and gave Brown a beating in the remaining rounds. His right uppercut found Brown's jaw time and again. He drove George "around the ring with sledgehammer blows."

Highland Park, Dayton, Ohio, USALTKO910
referee: Lou Bauman
Greb "outclassed (Brown) and in the 7th and 8th he jabbed, slashed, and swatted Brown until the latter was weary." At the end of the 8th Brown claimed that his right thumb was broken, and in the 9th he was unable to use it, causing the referee to stop the fight. The Dayton Journal described the conclusion of the fight in more detail, indicating that Brown refused to use his right hand after two physicians examined it.

Power Auditorium, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USALNWS66
Greb won the newspaper decision according to the Pittsburgh Post. Brown won the first round with body punching, but after that Greb was more mobile and beat K.O. to a frazzle. Even so, Brown kept on coming. "From the third round on, Greb..straightened the Greek out of his crouch with right uppercuts. In the 4th, Greb pasted Brown all over the ring. Greb won the 5th comfortably, but Brown got in a few hard licks. The sixth went about the same, so Greb won the last five rounds."

"Christie seemed to be puzzled by Brown's defense and did not put up his best work. The first and third round were Christie's, while the honors were divided in the other periods. Brown tapped Christie on the nose in the second round and was rewarded by the sight of blood. The Chicagoan got in a few hard wallops to Christie's jaw in the third round, but Christie was quick to even matters." (Indianapolis Star)
