1918-07-27Harry Greb31-2-1
Fort Sheridan, Illinois, USALPTS1010
Greb won the newspaper decision. (Daily Review) However, the Pittsburgh Post said that it was a referee's decision in a fight billed for the "service middleweight title." McGoorty boxed cleverly and held his own in three or four rounds. In the others, Greb overwhelmed him with his aggressive attack. Greb was in great form and McGoorty did well to stay upright beneath the hail of blows he had to endure. It was a great fight, as Eddie put up plenty of opposition."

World Middleweight Title
Australian Version

The original decision was a win for McGoorty but was so unpopular it was later rescinded by officials. The Sydney Morning Herald (16 March) wrote of the fight : "An uproar of disapproval unprecedented in the annals of the Australian ring was heard at the Sydney Stadium on Staurday night when Arthur Scott declared Eddie McGoorty the winner over fellow American Jeff Smith. If ever a man earned a victory it was Smith. He bested his opponent at every point in the game .... The huge crowd of 15000 resented it almost to a man and a storm of booing, varied with cheers for Smith, continued for many minutes".

Australia Version/b>
"McGorty stood well over his opponent and looked much bigger", despite the weights recorded 6 1/2 hours before the fight, "and the American was probably at least half a stone to the good at ringside." (Sydney Morning Herald)

House of David Baseball Park, Benton Harbor, Michigan, USAWNWS1010
"Sherrif Johnson and his deputies put a stop to the Eddie McGoorty-Knockout Brown ten round fight here on Thursday ten seconds before the end of the last round, by arresting both principals and officials. All are charged with violating the Michigan boxing law. Floyd Fitzsimmons, who promoted the bout, said he would carry the case to the state supreme court. (..) McGoorty put Brown down for the count of eight near the opening of the fourth round. Brown was floored by an uppercut as he was pulling out of a clinch. Brown managed to get to his feet, however, before the gong sounded and for the remainder of the round fought in a groggy daze. It was McGoorty's fight although Brown took punishment gamely." (Daily Northwestern)
