Nicholas Walters To Move Up In Weight To Fight Jason Sosa

Nicholas Walters is looking for big opponents in 2016. As if he hasn’t already faced big-time opposition in his professional career. He represents one of Nonito Donaire’s three career professional losses, which is truly an incredible achievement. He knocked out Vic Darchinyan and is currently undefeated as a professional. That is quite an impressive resume for anybody to put...

Nicholas Walters, Felix Verdejo Win One-Sided, Yet Competitive, Decisions

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Erislandy Lara, Delvin Rodriguez And Nicholas Walters

In my time doing this weekly schedule (more than two years), I can’t recall a stretch where high level boxing has been on TV as consistently as it has in the last month. I use the term “high level” fairly loosely — if you look at this week’s fights, there are a lot of big name fighters in action, but few of them are in against stiff competition. Oh well, we’ll take what...
