Nicholas walters vs vic darchinyan full boxing match
Born in Montego Bay, Walters attended the Roehampton Primary and Anchovy High School. Walters is nicknamed "The Axe Man". He is the son of former boxer Job Walters. He began boxing at the age of ten and had his first professional fight at the age of 22 against Estaban Ramos of Panama.
Walters had a successful amateur career prior to turning professional, winning the 2005 and 2006 Caribbean Championships gold medal at featherweight, and falling short at the 2007 World Championships at featherweight against Bashir Hassan and in 2008 at the America´s Olympic Qualifier at featherweight against Miguel Marriaga. He later went on to defeat Marriaga as a professional.
Walters captured the WBA Fedelatin title in 2009, and successfully defended it four times. He won the vacant WBA (Regular) World Featherweight title on 8 December 2012, against Colombian Daulis Prescott during the annual KO Drugs Festival in Jamaica, via seventh round knockout. Making good on his prediction of a knockout in either the 5th or 6th round, Walters defeated Nonito Donaire on 18 October 2014, by technical knockout in the 6th round to capture the WBA World Featherweight Championship. He was promoted to Super Champion status in February 2015.
He originally weighed in at 127.4 pounds for the fight against Miguel Marriaga, who weighed in at 125.2 pounds. Walters was given 2 hours to drop to at least 126 pounds, the maximum limit of the Featherweight division. Walters did not succeed, being able only to drop to 127 pounds. Thus, he was stripped of the title. Even though he defeated Marriaga, he did not win the title back, which still remains vacant.
