His timing in the ring wasn't always impeccable but when Billy Walker knocked out Cornelius Perry, the giant American amateur champion, on live TV in 1961, it couldn't have been better. The 22-year-old Billingsgate porter turned pro a few months later and for seven years his crowd-pleasing style set box-office records in Britain without winning major titles. Big, blond and handsome, he indulged his hobbies of boozing and womanising while elder brother George built a business empire on his ring earnings. Then it went wrong. He fell out with George, his second wife gambled away his money, and the drink engulfed him.

It's a brave reporter who challenges Arnold Schwarzenegger face to face. Who knows what physical retribution the former Terminator might wreak? Yet one man was brave enough to trade (verbal) blows with the Governor of California last week.
