NICHOLAS WALTERS RUMORS

Rankings updates: Andre Ward, Danny Garcia & Nicholas Walters all no longer divisional champions

We have an absolutely massive rankings update for you here. We’ve gone back and updated the top 10 divisional ranking in almost every division in the sport from 122 lbs on up. There’s a lot to sort through, especially after this weekend’s busy slate of action. We saw Shawn Porter score a very big win over Adrien Broner, and we also saw David Lemieux continue to assert his status...

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

Nicholas Walters and Felix Verdejo fought mystery opponents Saturday night on HBO, in that both were undefeated yet unproven. Both put up resistance, winning a round or two each, ultimately succumbing on the scorecards to more experienced and classier opposition. Verdejo was up first, and boy howdy did he get a dandy of a hummer from the HBO broadcast crew en route to his decision...

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.

Nicholas Walters Announces His Arrival Against Nonito Donaire

(Nicholas Walters, right, Nonito Donaire, right; via) That was an exceptional performance Saturday night on HBO by Nicholas Walters, to knock out the never-KO’d, rarely-even-hurt Nonito Donaire. He had to fight through an early trademark counter left hook from Donaire to do it, but once he got going, he made a former pound-for-pound top 10 guy submit, making him appear shellshocked...
