Mickey Walker was the new welterweight champion of the world and he liked the feeling. Everybody wanted to be his pal, kids would follow him in the street, their mothers and fathers would stop him to shake his hand and ask for autographs for their children. One of the neighbor’s children was Frederick James Cochrane, a ScotchIrish kid with bright red hair, blue eyes and a stubby nose. He was raised on Bond Street just a few houses from where Mickey lived in the Keighry Head section of town. As a kid he recalled scrambling for pennies and nickels tossed by Walker when he came home from a ﬁght.
For a year after Bulger’s death, he was on his own. Many of the top managers, including Leo P. Flynn, offered Mickey big money to sign contracts with them, but he refused. Mickey Walker never would have been happy with the Leo P. Flynn described by sportswriter Frank Graham Jr. in a December 1969 article in Sports Illustrated: “When he died in 1930, Flynn left behind possibly the largest stable of ﬁghters ever assembled by an American manager. ‘I doubt if Leo knew himself,’ said Ray Arcel, who often trained Flynn’s ﬁghters.
Rickard offered a ﬂat guarantee of $300,000 with a large percentage privilege for a Leonard–Walker bout and Leonard went into training for it. But when it came for the signing, Benny turned to Gibson, his manager, and said, “Billy, I’m not sure of my form. I’ve been accustomed to work regularly and because of my mother’s illness I’ve had only two bouts in a year and a half. I don’t think I’m in condition for a ﬁght with Walker but if you let me have one tune up ﬁght and I think I’m ready, I’ll take on Walker as my last ﬁght.
