Nicholas Walters – Former WBA featherweight world champion Nicholas Walters (26-0-1) is a big-time underdog as he heads into this Saturday night’s HBO fight against WBO super featherweight world champion Vasyl Lomachenko (6-1).
One thing has been evident all week, however, and that is that the Jamaican- born Walters is confident in what he is bringing to the table. One number that does jump out at you is Walters’ reach advantage of over 6 inches.

Part of the reason Walters is a big underdog is the skill package Lomachenko presents. Earlier this week, promoter Bob Arum called him the greatest technical fighter since Muhammad Ali, and with his 50-plus years experience in the fight game people were paying attention, even Nicholas Walters.
Always the consummate pro, Arum joins Walters for a portion of this interview expressing support and confidence for Walters, who has been promoted by Top Rank for several years now. Walters is confident and he is all business for this fight, and he hopes to show it come Saturday night. Check out the full video and what Saturday’s challenger had to say.
