On Christmas Day, December 25, 1926 at the Motor Square Garden Arena in Pittsburg, Harry Greb, fighting as a light heavyweight, took on future champion Tommy Loughran. Greb won a ten round decision. Eddie Kennedy, the referee's round scoring was not announced, but Regis Welsh of the Pittsburgh Post gave Greb 5 rounds, Loughran 3, and 2 even. The first round was even, Greb won the 2nd, Tommy the 3rd, Greb the 4th and 5th. Loughran almost floored Greb with a wicked right in the 5th, but Greb fought back with a terrific flurry and kept Tommy from following up on his advantage. Loughran won the 6th and 8th rounds and the seventh was even. Greb won the 9th and 10th. The impression of onlookers was that Greb was not quite the fighter he had been. Offered here is a rare, original wire photo which depicts action during the fight.
