Boxing writer at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer (P-I) from the mid-1920's through the mid-1940's. Sharp was known for his outstanding articles which covered each fight on the card in detail. He was also a good reporter, who wrote informative articles about local fighters and happenings in the Seattle boxing scene.

Even though the P-I had a reputation for doing an outstanding job of covering boxing on it's page, William Randolph Hearst the owner of the paper, was known to dislike boxing. This was in contrast to the Seattle Times owner A.J. Blethen, who was a boxing fan.

Prior to joining the P-I, Sharp worked as a boxing writer for the Portland Oregonian.
