This is a cradle-to-grave biography of Mickey Walker, former welterweight (1922-1926) and middleweight (1926-1931) champion of the world, one of the greatest fighters in ring history. Born in 1901, he fought at a time when boxing was a major sport with only eight championships, and he held two of them over a nine-year period. He fought at a time when each weight division was jammed with good fighters, and he fought them all from welterweight up to heavyweight. Walker was also a great personality who loved life and lived it to the fullest. He was married seven times to four different women, and he cavorted with movie stars and mobsters.

When his boxing career ended in 1935, Walker ran saloons in various locations and eventually became an artist of some standing. He died in 1981 at age 79.
