Auditorium, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USAWNWS1010
Newspaper decision from the Milwaukee Free Press
"Charley Neary failed to come back in his bout with Kid Graves in the Auditorium Wednesday night. He lasted ten rounds, that was all. The fans, who were all with Neary, were relieved when the gong clanged. (..) Graves was too fast. In only three rounds, the third, ninth and tenth, did Charlie make any kind of a showing. He flashed for brief instants and when he did the crowd cheered, but they were only flashes. The bell saved him from a knockout in the fifth round. Graves, who had been using a left almost continually, suddenly crashed a right on Neary's jaw. The former idol dropped to his hands and knees, for the count of seven. When he got up Graves shoved him off, and the bell rang." (Capital Times)

1915-12-16Harry Greb5-1-0
Power Auditorium, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USAWTKO26
referee: Joe Donnelly
Graves boxed very coolly in the first round, displaying a fine left jab and hook. He blocked most of Greb's punches or pulled away from them. Greb hurt his arm in a mix-up at the beginning of the second round. He then made a desperate attempt to win the fight and outfought Graves in a couple of exchanges to win the round slightly. "When the gong sounded ending the round, Greb's left arm fell limp at his side..His face, screwed up, bore testimony to the pain he was suffering." He had broken the radius of his left arm and fought a full round in that condition. The next day, Greb's arm was splinted and he was showing the X-ray of the break around. The radius was completely fractured, "and the jagged ends were overlapping." (from the Pittsburgh Post)
