I too D, learned from my old man who SAW Harry Greb give a horrendous beating to the 12 pound heavier Gene Tunney in MSG 1922...He told me he never saw so much blood pouring from Tunney's kisser,that night...Years later he took me a youngster to see the new sensational WW Ray Robinson
fight and my dad was so impressed with Sugar Ray. When I would ask him who would have won between Greb and Robby, he would snicker at me and say Greb was too strong and tough for Robinson...Greb and Robinson were
immortals for sure...Cheers D.
