Harry Greb known as "The Human Windmill" for his tenacious boxing style won the World Middleweight Championship on August 31, 1923 over Johnny Wilson. He successfully defended it five times before losing to Tiger Flowers on February 26, 1926. A few months after losing the rematch to Flowers he was involved in an auto accident.
