Professional career

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.
