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 !
He was also beaten by Tunney twice and Gibbons twice and Loughran once. I never questioned how great Greb was, it is just that he fought in such a different era, it is hard to figure how he would do in a more modern era.
