Vista Allegre Bull Ring, Panama City, PanamaLKO415
This was a sensational fight in which Zulu suffered the first knockout of his career. He was knocked down in round three as well as in the fatal fourth, but did some hard hitting himself. He set sail for the United States on January 7. From the Panama Star & Herald.
1920-12-11Jim Briggs17-8-2
Vista Allegre Bull Ring, Panama City, PanamaWDQ415
From the Panama Star & Herald. Briggs was well ahead, and had scored two knockdowns, when he fouled Zulu and was disqualified. From the Star & Herald, 3 December 1920, comes the following list of fights that Briggs had in Honduras in 1920 (without exact locations and dates): KO 5, Ragtime Bill; KO 2, Festus Martinez; KO 4, Kid Johnson (of Panama); KO 1, Cyril Barclay; KO 1, Kid McCoy (local fighter).
1920-02-06Harry Greb41-2-1
National Guard Armory, Kalamazoo, Michigan, USALNWS1010
referee: E.W. Dickerson
Results from the Kalamazoo Gazette. Greb fought the entire fight almost exclusively with his left. The Gazette reported "At the conclusion of the eighth round, the announcement was made that Greb was fighting with a broken right arm, the injury being received over six weeks ago....Greb undoubtedly gave a fine exhibition of one-handed fighting, but the bout was nevertheless generally unsatisfactory....Greb was using his left largely and outpointing Mike (sic) at that....The crowd cheered Greb during the ninth and tenth rounds. Lemair (sic) showed nothing during the bout." Zulu, who for some reason was billed as "Mike Lemair" substituted for Bartley Madden. A false wire report was circulated that Zulu Kid was "given the decision" in this bout. The primary source report above makes it clear that this was not the case. Considering that Greb fought again just 17 days later, it must not have really been a break. Greb had suffered from ptomaine in January. Very few effective punches were landed.

referee: Al Watson
Newspaper win for Greb according to the Pittsburgh Post. Zulu Kid, as usual, was too slow of hand and foot to trouble Greb. He stood up under a severe battering, especially in the last two rounds and "failed to land a single hard blow."

1917-04-16Harry Greb15-2-0
Power Auditorium, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USALNWS66
referee: Eddie Kennedy
Greb won the newspaper decision according to the Pittsburgh Post. Greb and Zulu put up a sloppy bout. Zulu won round one and Greb all the others. Greb was too busy for his opponent. Zulu's right connected twice or more in every round and always set Greb back, but he never followed up his advantages and Greb peppered him in return. The fighters' styles didn't blend and it was a scrambling affair.
