The Uniontown Morning Herald reported this to be an easy fight for Greb, having hit Rowlands 'with about everything but the water bottle' before knocking his opponent out with a straight right to the jaw. This was a Saturday night fight - postponed from Friday because of rain - and no report appeared in the Pittsburgh Post except in a summary of June results, published on July 1.

1919-02-03Harry Greb33-2-1
Southside Market House, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USALTKO410
referee: Eddie Kennedy
Greb landed a low blow in the first round and Rowlands was given a rest. Rowlands fought well in the first couple of rounds, landing lefts and rights as Greb charged in. Greb was in command in the third. Just before the end of the round he worked himself into position and shot his right several times to the short ribs. This seemed to take the steam out of Rowlands and when he went to his corner he told his seconds that he was through. Naturally this didn't set well with the crowd. Since Rowlands fought a 10-rounder with Tommy Gibbons two nights before, he evidently didn't have time to recover. Greb had a big weight advantage. (from the Pittsburgh Post.

Greb won the newspaper decision according to the Milwaukee Free-Press and the Pittsburgh Post.

Greb split open Rowlands' cheek in the 7th round.

No official decision was rendered, but local papers gave a slight edge to Rowlands. Bob Fitzsimmons, the old former champion was there with his son Bobby, and later stated he thought Weeks had done enough to earn a decision, and had the bout gone on much longer he likely would've knocked Rowlands out.
