1925-11-25 Mickey Walker nd-w pts 12 Sailor Friedman, 113th Regiment Armory, Newark, New Jersey, USA - NY/NBA/GB. Outmanoeuvred on the outside, the crafty Friedman (144) did much better at close quarters in nullifying the champion’s aggression, and although well beaten he staged a belated rally which left Walker (146½) with a badly battered mouth at the final bell. While there were no arguments with the press decision, Walker appeared to lack the finishing ability needed to put paid to his hardy rival and was a big disappointment.
