The undefeated power-puncher knock-out artist of Jamaica Nicholas Walters wins over The Filipino Flash Nonito Donaire at the end of sixth round.
“This victory didn’t just come like that. We worked hard. Knowing that we were fighting Donaire, we knew it would be tough work, because he’s a super great boxer, a tough champion,” Walters says in an after bout interview with HBO’s Max Kellerman.
“I respect him. He caught me early on. He had power and speed. He was good. I thank Donaire for giving me this opportunity so I can display my talent to HBO and the world,” Walters added.
Donaire, on the other hand, says Walters is the better fighter. “He knocked the fucking shit out of me. He’s an amazing fighter. I’m getting older, but I’m not taking anything from Walters. I was at my best. I’ve never trained this hard. I’ve never, ever trained this hard. He came out as tough as I thought he would be. Just the size that he had over me, I couldn’t move. He just overwhelmed me and knocked the shit out of me,” Donaire told Kellerman.
Walters who holds the regular WBA 126-pound belt just snatched Donaire’s super title.
