That was a terrible mistake on my part. My mind wanders...

Yes.

He ducked the Black Irish Les Darcy.

Charles couldn't even beat "the poor man's Harry Greb" in Ken Overlin.

If the fight was on the table, Greb would have taken it. History clearly shows that about Harry. It was never on the table, so it never happened.

How would this fight have panned out in 1917?

I tend to think Berg and his friends of Israel would have a lot of egg on their faces.

I literally don't know what that means but I highly doubt the best version of Les Darcy beats that version of Greb more than 1 time out of four.

His last name was Greb. The Berg myth is just that. It was debunked quite some time ago. He was 100% German. Nothing Jewish or Israel-linked about him.

If you're going to come here and troll it's a good idea to have your facts together. You're barely two posts in and you've already said two provably untrue things.

Good luck.

Surf you are correct . Both of Harry Greb's parents came from Germany, and the nation of Israel was created in 1946, TWENTY years after Harry Greb died.

This. I doubt very seriously that the great Darcy would've beaten the great Greb. And whoever the idiot troll is that is going on about this "Berg" nonsense should really go find a sturdy rope and make a neck swing out of it. That myth was debunked MANY years ago.

The only man Harry Greb "ducked" was the undertaker who finally caught up with him at the age of 26....

Yes. He died in 1926. That is probably what the other guy was confused about.
