1918-03-04Harry Greb30-2-1
Coliseum, Toledo, Ohio, USALNWS1212
The Pittsburgh Post reported that Greb handed Dillon a bad thrashing. Dillon simply was not as effective as he had once been, although looking the same physically.

The Toledo News-Bee reported that Dillon landed 4 blows during the bout, while stopping about 10,000 blows from Greb with his face or body.

1917-07-30Harry Greb18-2-1
Forbes Field, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USALNWS1010
referee: Eddie Kennedy
Greb won the newspaper decision according to the Pittsburgh Post. Greb won by a wide margin. Dillon landed some good rights to split honors in the fourth round and Greb won all the others "by margins varying from fair to the proverbial city block." Greb's style had Dillon "all at sea." "Dillon did a good job of defending himself and blocked at least half of Greb's innumerable punches..but..was kept so busy he didn't often mount an attack and when he did Greb danced away." Dillon did well in close but Greb rarely allowed him there. Dillon, usually expression-less, registered rage and "blind helpless fury in his face." In short, Greb was the complete master of the fight.

1916-12-19Billy Miske16-0-1
Broadway Arena, Brooklyn, New York, USALNWS1010
Newspaper reports disagreed as to the winner, but the Brooklyn Daily Eagle and New York Evening Telegram both favored Miske.

"Followers of the game in these parts are satisfied that there is scarcely a hair's difference in the punching power or the ability to absorb punishment between the two. Their battle was an ideal draw. Scaling at 174 pounds, Miske crawled through the ropes just three quarters of a pound heavier than Dillon and in the course of ten rounds there was little if any difference in the two lads from a fighting standpoint. Miske gave Dillon nearly all he had during the first six rounds and the Hoosier found the going tough, but fought back with the ferocity of a Sierra bobcat and weathered the storm. From the seventh round on Dillon had more snap to his punches and Miske seemed a trifle slow at times. Miske's best round was the third and it looked mighty stormy for Dillon. The St.Paul lad rained blows at the Hoosier from every angle and Dillon's great arms, bowed about his head and midriff, saved him from severe punishment. But Dillon showed his stamina by coming back in the seventh round. He backed Miske around the ring with a shower of punches and had him swinging wild and trying to hold on. This round evened up the battle and the last three rounds were as even as two and two." (Lima Times Democrat)

1916-11-10Mike Gibbons43-1-4
Auditorium, Saint Paul, Minnesota, USALNWS1010
referee: George Barton
"Mike Gibbons, St. Paul, handed Jack Dillon, Indianapolis, a neat little triming. From the very first tap of the gong until the last, Gibbons demonstrated that he was a past master of the fade-away boxing. He would rush in, hand the Indianapolis bear cat a series of punches and then fade away." (Sandusky Star Journal)
