UNDEFEATED FOR 6 CONSEQUTIVE YEARS

Walter Palmer held the NWA Heavyweight Championship Title from 1940-1946. The pressure was mounting. His winning streak ended in Rockford, IL in 1947. He was running late, it was a bitterly cold night. Walter had no time to do his routine Jiffy Gym warm up prior to entering the ring. The bell rang for the opening bout and on the 1st fall Walter’s leg broke in a bloody compound fracture, ending the match and ultimately losing the Championship Title.
