Yes, offically they were no decisions, Frawley Law, the orginitator of the no decision bout, is an important part of the sport. Without it boxing would not be legal in many parts of the USA.
Greb as well as every other fighter knew this and were prepared to deal with it, so they could be paid legally. So Greb ends up with at least 180 no decisions on his record.
