1928-06-05 Mickey Walker nd-w pts 10 Jock Malone, Lexington Park, St Paul, Minnesota, USA - WORLD. Billed for the title in an open-air event, with Malone (157) only able to become champion if Walker (159½) was stopped, kayoed or disqualified, the champion made a good start when stunning the former with two lefts and a right cross to the jaw in the second round. From then on, Malone fought an adroit defensive battle, jabbing, blocking and sidestepping, as Walker tried to wear him down with body punches. Towards the end of the fight, Malone realised he would have to open up if he wanted to land the title, but Walker’s bodywork had taken the steam out of him and the action fizzled out, Walker easily winning the press decision.
