The undefeated power-puncher of Jamaica Nicholas Walters is self-assured that after his fight with the Filipino Flash Nonito Donaire he will be declared as the undisputed WBA featherweight champion. Donaire and Walters will face in the ring on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
Walters who holds the “regular” version of the WBA 126-pound crown sworn to snatch Donaire’s “super” title. Walters also admitted that Donaire has a home court advantage but it doesn’t bother him for he believes that at the end of the day Donaire’s supporters will be his.
“He’s going to have his crowd, but at the end of the day, there will only be Donaire, myself and the ref in the ring. He can’t run to his coach or his fans once we’re in the ring. His fans are not going to help him. I’m not worried. His fans will be my fans at the end of the fight,” Walters said.
The Jamaican fighter acknowledged the fact that Donaire is a good boxer however he believes he can outsmart the Filipino Flash. Walters also aims to knock out Donaire in the fifth round or less, just like what he did to his former opponent Vic Darchinyan.
“Donaire is a very good champion. We both have speed and power. The difference is intelligence. I was born to fight. The bigger the fight the better,” Walters said.
“If Donaire isn’t right, he’s going to get knocked out. Maybe five rounds, maybe less. Not sure yet,” Walters added.
