This fight ended in a riot. "Of the ten rounds fought, Flowers was credited with winning five, Carbone took three, and two were even." Flowers fouled Carbone in the third round and butted him in the face in round ten, "causing Carbone to butt him in the jaw until he went down. Carbone then tried to hit Flowers while he sat on the floor." "On his way to the dressing room, Carbone was mobbed and laid out by a flow from the butt end of a gun. Police rushed him from the arena still clad in his fighting trunks. After his wounds were dressed in a hospital, he got to El Paso safely." Boxing Blade, January 13, 1923, page 9.

1922-05-12Happy Littleton23-4-0
Tulane Arena, New Orleans, Louisiana, USALPTS1515
Reported in the New Orleans Times-Picayune (Jack Kincaid). Littleton won practically every round, but Carbone kept it interesting with his never-say-die attitude and "fought like a wildcat." Carbone was floored for a 9-count in round four and missed about nine out of every ten blows that he threw. The fifth was Frank's best round and, seeing his chance, he threw punches with such abandon that once he went sprawling. Littleton cut up his tough opponent's face, causing him to bleed freely. Happy was just too clever and sharp for Carbone.

Convention Hall, Rochester, New York, USALNWS1010
Newspaper win for Greb according to the Rochester Herald (Paul Zabala).

It was a hard fought affair, but Greb won easily. According to the Pittsburgh Post, Harry "boxed rings around Carbone." Carbone was a glutton for punishment and attacked repeatedly despite the "rain of blows to his head." Carbone suffered a bad eye cut in the third round and landed several low blows in late rounds, but Greb did not claim a foul.
