If Notmyer is selling over the net the complaints should be addressed to the fcc website

After Battling Gahee got knocked down three times and battered by Dempsey in sparring, he had this to say: "How that boy does hit! I whipped Kid Norfolk twice and Norfolk told me I could beat Dempsey. Dempsey can whip a roomful of Gahees and Norfolks."

Am I missing something ... he fought Norfolk three times, losing twice and getting a draw ... this was a career journeyman with a terrible record ( against tough opposition for sure ) and a light heavyweight ...

[quote=he grant;15631675] Funny how Greb is hailed as an exceptional fighter (which he was) beating so many larger fighters but when the Norfolk fights are mentioned it is always prefaced w how much weight Greb was giving up.

With that in mind boxrec lists the "Pittsburgh Times" voting for Harry in their Forbes Field battle. Very Fishy
I know of no such paper even existing

Keep in mind that his record is VERY incomplete at this time. We're still trying to find lost fights of his. In fact I just found and added one to Boxrec

I dont think anyone is going to mistake Gahee for being a better fighter than Norfolk or even a guage of how well Norfolk would have done against Dempsey. Gahee's record is incomplete but Norfolk's is as well, probably not as much as Gahee's but as it stands with less than half the fights of Norfolk Gahee has more losses and more stoppage losses.
