Review: 2014-05-31, good finish but the rest of the fight was pretty boring: Nicholas Walters vs Vic Darchinyan gets two stars. The undefeated Nicholas Walters entered this fight with a perfect record of 23-0-0 (19 KOs=82%) and he is ranked as the No.11 featherweight in the world, he fought just once in 2013 defeating Alberto Garza in a fight valid for the WBA Fw belt; Walters is 28 years old, ten years younger than Darchinyan.
His opponent, Vic Darchinyan, has a record of 39-6-1 (28 knockouts) and he entered as the No.20 in the same weight class, he has won world titles in three different weight classes but he comes off three defeats in his last five bouts: he lost to Anselmo Moreno in 2011 (=Moreno vs Darchinyan) Shinsuke Yamanaka in 2012 (=Yamanaka vs Darchinyan) and Nonito Donaire in 2013 (=Donaire vs Darchinyan 2). Walters vs Darchinyan is valid for the WBA World featherweight title; undercard of Nonito Donaire vs Simpiwe Vetyeka. Watch the video and rate this fight!
