Greb, simply too far back in time to figure how great he was.
And Lincoln was "too far back" to figure how great a president he was !
Look at the record books, see his amazing resume, fighting everybody, beating everyone, every size, and look at film of some of his great HOF victims he whipped in a 300 bout career. Greb didn't beat them by osmosis.
Greb beat them , [Tunney, Gibbons, Loughran, Slattery, Dillon,Battling Levinsky, Gunboat Smith, Kid Norfolk, Maxie Rosenbloom, Bill Brennan, Gunboat Smith etc ] BECAUSE HE WAS THAT GOOD !
