I've become sort of obsessed with who it is fair to pick against Greb in purely stylistic terms. Probably related to the no film/huge status relationship. So far i've come across Dick Tiger & that's about it.
I think Fitz would be a good pick. Highly durable the Greb attack is neutralised (to a degree), meanwhile Greb's movement gives Fitz trouble - but Fitz doesn't need to land an awful lot to win this one, does he?
Fitz had freakish power for his weight ,but Greb fought a lot of rated heavies and beat them,the way to beat Greb was " to stay with him"as he accelerated and hit to his body as Tunney did,Loughran too,Tunney hurt Greb badly as he got bigger and stronger but Fitz was slower than those guys and not a pressure fighter either if he caught Harry clean he might stop him but chances are Greb out hustles him for a split dec,imo.
