It's possible, but not likely, given the fact that transport of boxing footage across state lines was banned after Johnson/Jeffries in 1910. (This law certainly didn't promote the filming and preservation of boxing films, and is probably a major reason why none of Harry Greb's matches have come to light. The places to look for this historic bouts is in the states themselves where they actually took place.)
