Greb pummeled the cham pion relentlessly about the head and body. He weakened Wilson In the fifth with a series of right jolts to the jaw and had the cham pion in distress in both the eighth and ninth rounds with a slashing attack to the head, : But Wilson blocked in most of his offensive attempts - and finding the Pitts burgher a shifty and elusive tar get, fought back ' gamely.V He stood up under a heavy bombard ment in the last four rounds with his left eye virtually closed and blood dripping from cuts about his mouth. V Wilson's attack was dlrecteif chiefly to Greb's body and at times he seemed to hurt: the challenger with short left hooks to the ribs and stomach, but Greb inevitably checked his opponent by blocking and maneuvering. ? In the 12th and 13th rounds Wilson showed a few flashes of championship form but they were only, momentary. Puzzled by his opponent's meth- of- h,e Invariably, stayed on, the defensive or lost opportunities to shoot over effective punches by his slowness! i . .'-.' Greb's rough tactics :and Wil son's apparent inability to dis play any effective sort' of attack marred many of the rounds. The Pittsburgher was warned -repeatedly for, holding- in the clinches while he swung his right to Wil son's head and body and on one or two occasions he war roundly booed ty the crowd for his unfair ness. Wilson, however, was also guilty of rough work but he usual ly was worsted in these attempts to meet Greb at the latter's jbwn game. .
