Well your own knowledge is horrifically out of kilter with the reality.

Greb wasn't "using fouls" and Tunney said himself that his fouls tended to be retaliatory. It's also the case that the first Tunney victory, widely (but not entirely) regarded as a robbery caused Greb to fight especially clean in subsequent fights for fear of being persecuted.

It is also the case that, in addition to Gene Tunney himself, the New York commission defended Greb's conduct.

Frankly, you seem to be all over the place.
