Walsh was a talented and crafty fighter who won the Bantamweight Championship of the World during his career; He had ambitions for the Featherweight Championship but tangled with Abe Attell and Johnny Kilbane for that honor and was not successful

During his career, Walsh defeated such men as Tommy Feltz, Phil Logan, "Philadelphia" Pal Moore, Joe Goldberg and Young Goldie; Some sources report a victory over Abe Attell; Fighting during the time of "No Decision" bouts, Walsh was the better man in the vast majority of these contests
