Can this photo be of Greb sparring with Jack Dempsey,and getting the best of their session.? It sure looks like the face of Harry Greb. The ref is in the foreground with a white cap. But why would there be a ref in a training session.? Interesting.....

Those photos all originate from Dempsey's 1919 training camp for the Willard bout. Greb is not in any of them. Thats not a ref. That is Jimmy Deforrest who trained Dempsey for the bout.
