Thumbs down Gene Tunney on Harry Greb

Here's a link to this bit from Tunney's book where he talks about Greb. I read it a long time ago but it stuck with me. It's an interesting read. Do any of the classic posters have any thoughts on this? Does it all ring true? How's Tunney's recollection?

Like a lot of what Tunney said, its about half true in nearly every major point he hits.
