Virtualy everybody started out their career working as a journeyman in those days. Jack Johnson, Sam Lanngford, Jack Dempsey, Archie Moore. It was the only way you could learn the trade.

That dose not mean that Walcotts career can be sumarised by saying that he was a journeyman who got lucky. He cleaned out the division prior to facing Louis for the title was a pivotal figure in the division untill he won the title.
