September 5,

 

1904: Sam Langford D 15 Joe Walcott, Manchester, NH. Walcott signed to defend his claim as World Welterweight champion in this fight but as weights were never disclosed, doubt remains as to whether this was a true title defense. Another account of the fight (newspaper): “Joe Walcott met his match in a 15-round bout yesterday afternoon in the Massabasic coliseum before a crowd of 1200. His opponent was Sam Langford, who clearly outpointed the champion, and the latter’s aggressiveness in carrying the fight to Langford was all that saved him from taking a decision that would have given him the short end of the purse. Langford took advantage of his longer reach and repeatedly played a tattoo on Walcott’s face and his cleverness on his feet carried him away from (unreadable) a score or more times when Walcott endeavored by sheer brute force to deliver a knockout blow. While Walcott was the aggressor, Langford met his attacks by rights and lefts to the jaw and mouth so effectively as to draw blood in the second round and he kept Walcott bleeding in every round thereafter. In the third round, Langford brought the champion to one knee by a straight away jolt to the jaw, and he went through the entire fifteen rounds without a perceptible scratch on himself. In the opening round honors were even, but thereafter until the seventh round Langford had all the better of the argument. Source: Next day Lowell Sun.

1917: Harry Greb ND 10 Battling Levinsky, Pittsburgh. The Pittsburgh Post had Greb winner of the newspaper decision by a wide margin even though Levinsky had a 25-pound weight advantage. Greb won 8 rounds and two were even but it was still a hard battle. Greb was the aggressor throughout. Levinsky looked good but Greb’s superior speed and busy style were too much for him. Not until the sixth round did Greb hurt Levinsky, which he did then with a terrific left hook. In the 8th, Levinsky got his big chance when he hurt Greb badly with a right to the body. Greb ceased attacking and tried to kid Levinsky, who then took the lead and landed some of his cleanest blows of the fight. Greb stopped Levinsky’s attack early in the 9th with a terrific hook. In the 10th he put Levinsky down for a 3-count and had him in serious trouble as the fight ended.

1897: Joe Gans D 15 Young Griffo, Philadelphia.

 

1918: Harry Greb ND 10 Billy Miske, Pittsburgh. Newspaper decision from the Pittsburgh Post. The Post reported that Miske landed the two hardest blows of the fight, one in the 6th and one in the 9th. “Greb carried the fighting at all stages and dictates the terms upon which they met.” Miske finished well, but Greb’s early attack had tired Billy so that he couldn’t take advantage of the opportunity. Sportswriter Harry Keck of the post gave Greb six rounds, Miske three rounds, and one even. Another Post writer, Florent Gibson, gave Greb five rounds, Miske three, and two even. Both writers thought that Greb’s two best rounds were the fifth and eighth. It was a hard fight, but not a sensational one. According to wire service reports, although Greb led through much of the first 8 rounds, he took a tremendous beating from Miske in rounds 9 and 10. Attendance 2,000.
