1924-06-02 Mickey Walker w pts 10 Lew Tendler, Baker Bowl, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - WORLD. Referee: Jim Brennan. Billed as Philadelphia’s first title bout, a 25,000 crowd witnessed Walker (147) make a successful defence over Lew Tendler (142½) by a unanimous decision, his vicious body attacks leaving the latter battered and bruised. Although there were no knockdowns, the only way Tendler, who at best shared one round, avoided being floored was to clutch for all he was worth and it was only his superb condition that saved him.
