1917-12-17Harry Greb25-2-1
Heuck's Opera House, Cincinnati, Ohio, USALPTS1212
referee: Frank Mills
Both the Cincinnati Enquirer and Cincinnati Post report this bout went to a referee's decision. Greb won "every round". The Pittsburgh Post said that Greb's blows appeared less effective than Christie's, but he landed more often. Christie took a lot of punishment and suffered a damaged eye, but fought back hard.
1917-10-23Harry Greb22-2-1
Armory, Chattanooga, Tennessee, USALPTS88
According to the Pittsburgh Post, this was not a thrilling fight. Both men showed clever defense and not much damage was done. Greb landed frequently, however, and referee Jake Abel gave him the decision, which was popular with the audience. According to the Chattanooga Times (courtesy of Jack Kincaid), "Greb had a decided advantage all he way through, Christie doing little offensive work."
1917-10-11Harry Greb22-2-1
Broadway Auditorium, Buffalo, New York, USALNWS1010
referee: Dick Nugent
Both the Buffalo Boxing Record and the Pittsburgh Post reported Greb as winner of the newspaper decision. Christie landed some terrific body punches, and several hard head punches, in this fight. But they seemed to have little effect on Greb, "who kept up his seemingly awkward attack from the first to the last." The bout became quite one-sided in the late stages, but Christie stuck it out.

1914-03-24Mike Gibbons38-1-4
Arena, Hudson, Wisconsin, USALNWS1010
Newspaper decision for Gibbons from Duluth News Tribune (7-0-3 by rounds) and Daily Northwestern.
"Mike Gibbons won in a decisive fashion from Gus Christie. The local boy grabbed the decision in seven rounds, three being declared even. Both men finished fast. Lefts to the face served Mike in good stead. Christie seemed unable to get away from a blow of that nature and was repeatedly put to flight with a rain of pelts. His straight left was his only method of attack and with it he forced Gibbons to the ropes on several occasions. His failure to use it more may have altered the decision of several rounds." (Daily Northwestern)
Both men weighed in under 160 pounds.

1913-11-19George KO Brown8-4-4
Marion Club, Indianapolis, Indiana, USAWNWS66
"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)
