Legion Stadium, Fremont, Ohio, USALNWS1010
referee: Eddie Kennedy
Opinions about the winner varied, but the majority were for Greb. The Fremont Daily News scored for Flowers, as did the Toledo News-Bee, Toledo Blade,Columbus Citizen and Akron Press. Greb was tabbed the winner by the Fremont Daily Register, Columbus Evening Dispatch, Toledo Times, Detroit News, Sandusky Star Journal, Pittsburgh Gazette Times, Lorain Times Herald, Tiffin Advertiser, Mansfield News, Pittsburgh Post, Fostoria Daily Review, Cleveland News and Findlay Morning Republican. The Sandusky Register scored the fight a draw, but mentioned that of three rounds in which a fighter was far out in front, two belonged to Flowers. The newspaper decision from the Elyria Chronicle Telegram went to Greb. Regis Welsh, sports editor of the Pittsburgh Post, was on hand and said that 12,000 persons attended. Welsh scored it as follows: 1st round even; Flowers won the 2nd; Greb won the 3rd, 4th and 5th; Flowers got an edge in the 6th; and Greb won each of the last four rounds. Welsh described Flowers as a southpaw, "awkward, covering up, wild-swinging." For once Greb met someone as unorthodox as himself. Flowers did well for six rounds even though lacking a hard punch. After that he seemed to tire, "grew more timid as the bout wore on, and was at sea against Greb's windmill tactics, speed, and roughhouse." Afterward, Walk Miller (Flowers's manager) claimed victory, and his unrelenting publicity campaign did have the effect of making his fighter much better known.

Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, MexicoWDQ1015
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.
