Even though the fight didn't fulfill the expectations, Nicholas Walters won via Unanimous Decision over Colombian Miguel Marriaga, the judges scored the fight 118-109 117-110 and 119-108, Walters remains undefeated while Marriaga got the first loss of his career, let's not forget that even though Walters won, the WBA Super World featherweight title he used to hold is now vacant, as he didn't make weight for this fight. (he weighed in 1 pound over the 126 limit)

Walters said in a post-fight interview:

“After two weeks I will decide if I will move up to 130 pounds”

“Whoever is the best is who I want to fight. I want to fight the best”

“Even though I couldn't make the 126 I wanted to come here and give them a good show and that's what I did. I hurt him a few times but it was late in the rounds”

“The crowd is used to people knocking down people. I have not fought in six months. He was a tough guy. I hurt him. I did hurt him. Some guys would go down but he is tough and he stayed up.”
