1917-07-02Harry Greb17-2-1
Exposition Hall, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USALTKO610
referee: Eddie Kennedy
"Almost from the start it was evident that the bout could have but one ending." Greb was "a veritable demon," "a durable India-rubber jumping jack, who plunged and hit, kept on hitting and never left off hitting. Time and again Crouse launched a cunningly conceived and orthodox attack which would have gone through the defense of almost any fighter." At first Crouse made Greb miss a lot and occasionally got in some good punches which seemed to have no effect on Harry. Greb kept in close quarters to nullify Crouses's longer reach. He won every round. Crouse never was knocked down, but was beaten to a pulp. He was a punching bad by the sixth round, but somehow survived to the end of the round. The sponge came in at the end of the sixth. (Source: Pittsburgh Post.

1914-04-20Glenn Coakley14-1-1
Princess Rink, Fort Wayne, Indiana, USAWTKO310
"Buck Crouse, of Pittsburgh, today is being hailed as a blooming rotter in the mailer of international courtesy because of his employing solid shots instead of blanks in returning the salute of Glenn Coakley in their controversy at the Princess Rink last night. Crouse returned a full salute of twenty-one guns and every blooming one of them was loaded with a projectile in addition to the powder charge, while Coakley's salutes were quite in keeping with the courteous expression of international admiration that are commonly accepted among friends. The first gun Crouse fired was in the first round, and the projectile, wrapped in a boxing glove, struck Glenn just abaft the port ear. He heeled over badly, but managed to keep his keel below him, although listing badly to starboard for an instant before the second struck him on the prow. He settled by the stern and stayed under for five seconds, the bell bringing him up with the aid of his seconds. The saluting was discontinued for a minute,but immediately upon the resumption of activities Crouse plunked another shell amidships and dropped several with distinct thumps against Coakley's swell left ear. Twice Coakley settled to peaceful rest before the bell again saved him. It was in the third session of the exchange of salutes that one of Crouse's shots found lodgment on the right ear instead of the left, shaking Cruiser Coakley from stern to stern and flopping him off his keel. He righted himself only to be met with a thirteen-inch punch square on the snoot that shot him through the ropes. While he was gone, Referee Santry decided that the salute business had been carried quite far enough and waved Crouse to his corner. The bout was an exhibition of what troubles a man can get into by not taking an opponent seriously enough." (Fort Wayne News)

Kenwood Lawn, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USALNWS66
referee: Jack Dillon
"Crouse started with a rush, and fans agreed he showed better condition, but the Indianapolis boy had things his way after the bout got fairly started. In the second round the Hoosier began to wake up, and for a time it looked as though he had the Pittsburgh boy finished, but Crouse wriggled out of a bad hole before Dillon could follow up his advantage. He was nimble-footed throughout and dodged four or five heavy blows of knockout timber that almost took Dillon off his feet. Dillon landed two blows to Buck's one and was there with the punches that would have won for him had the north sider been less wary." (Fort Wayne News) The Pittsburgh Post also reported a Dillon victory.

Old City Hall, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USANCNC26
referee: Jack Dillon
Buffalo Times- "The bout was such a fizzle that the referee ordered Haney from the ring in the second round because he apparently would not fight. Crouse hit Haney at will but the latter did not attempt to strike a blow. He was escorted from the ring by police, who took him to the police station to protect him from the angry crowd." According to the Pittsburgh Post, Crouse's opponent turned out to not be the real Haney; he was an imposter.
