QUARTERFINALS
TOMMY LOUGHRAN VS. JACK DELANEY
These two technicians set up shop in the middle of the ring, and put on a clinic of the sweet science. While there was not much in the way of knockdown, drag em out action, the fight was entertaining, with a lot of ebb and flow. In the end, it was anyone's fight. The winner, Tommy Loughran. LOUGHRAN W15(u) DELANEY
JACK DILLON VS. MICHAEL SPINKS
This one looked like it was going to be over early. Michael used his Spinks Jinx to perfection, sending Dillon crashing to the canvas three times in the first two rounds. But Jack recovered, and proceeded to bewilder the usually patient Spinks, who in going kayo crazy, ran out of gas late, and allowed Dillon to steal a close but unanimous decision. DILLON W15(u) SPINKS
GEORGES CARPENTIER VS. GENE TUNNEY
As they say, this is why they fight the fights. Tunney, a heavy favorite, was having his way, shutting the Frenchman out, when a single left hook knocked Tunney out cold. CARPENTIER KO7 TUNNEY
BOB FOSTER VS. HARRY GREB
This one should have been the final. Greb and Foster each had their moments in this seesaw battle. Foster took an early lead and looked to be controlling the fight, but round by round, Greb creeped back into it, and by the time the championship rounds arrived, Greb was in control. There was doubt in the air after the fight, but Greb's late rally put him in the semis. GREB W15(u) FOSTER.
SEMIFINALS
TOMMY LOUGHRAN VS. JACK DILLON
Zzzzzzzzzzz. Of all the weight divisions we've fought over the last year, the Light Heavies definitely cornered the market on snoozes. Nothing eventful about this one. Dillon gets to the final. DILLON W15(u) LOUGHRAN
HARRY GREB VS. GEORGES CARPENTIER
They had to do this one twice. In their first match, Greb, not exactly an angel, butted Carpentier, opening a gash over his eye. The fight was stopped in the fourth, and a technical draw declared. A miffed Greb made Carpentier pay in the rematch, punishing him on the inside with punches, elbows, and forearms. When it was over, Carpentier lost a unanimous decision. GREB W15(u) CARPENTIER

Default Re: Light Heavyweight Tournament

FINAL
ALL-TIME LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
JACK DILLON VS. HARRY GREB
Two old-timers squared off in an unlikely final. Well, it looked like Dillon didn't want to even be in the ring with the Pittsburgh Windmill. When Dillon punched, he landed 82%, but he did not punch much. Greb continued to chase and chase, but Dillon refused to engage. Greb's frustration increased, and finally he resorted to roughouse tactics. By the ninth, Dillon was being mauled, and after another low blow, Greb was disqualified.
WINNER AND ALL-TIME LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION...JACK DILLON (WDISQ9)
