"Mickey Walker, fighting a man who weighed 42 pounds more than he, was on the floor in one round of his fight last night with Bearcat Wright, Omaha Negro, but came back to win. . . . Walker went down for a count of three in the first, but wasn't hurt seriously and in the second he floored the giant Negro for a short count. Walker held the edge from then on and had Wright hanging on the ropes at the end of the tenth and final round." (Daily Northwestern)
