    It reminds me of the time Steve Forbes said Roy Jones Jr. had faster hands than Floyd Mayweather Jr. Both Greb and Jones possessed otherworldly skill in that department.

    From the readings it's clear Greb was very fast. He was also dirty and not ashamed of its with a somewhat amateurish but never ending style to lots of punches and a bobbing, weaving, and ducking style. He was always doing something.

    Always, hence the nickname. I asked if Butch had seen Midget Wolgast fight because he was widely seen as blazing in the speed department. Apparently he had, meaning Butch thought Greb was faster than Wolgast, too.
