1906-02-22 (120/122lbs) Abe Attell w pts 15 Jimmy Walsh, Lincoln AC, Pythian Rink, Chelsea, Massachusetts, USA. Referee: Jack Sheehan. Billed for the American 120lbs title with both men inside, Attell was far too fast and clever to be caught by Walsh, who ended badly cut about the face, and boxed his way to an easy win despite lacking a punch that would have ended the fight early.

Another fight for Attell that found its way into the Ring Record Book as one that involved the 122lbs title came against Kid Herman (drew 20 at the Naud Junction Pavilion, Los Angeles, California) on 11 May 1906 and can be discounted on the grounds that Herman came to the ring weighing 129lbs.
