Walters vs. Prescott Finalized For WBA Title, Dec. 8

By Edward Chaykovsky

The scene is set for a showdown involving the vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) featherweight title fight at the National Indoor Sports Centre in Jamaica on December 8. Tickets will go on sale November 8th.

According to The Gleamer, Nicholas 'The Axeman' Walters will take on Colombia's Daulis Prescott, the No. 5 contender, for the vacant belt. The title became vacant on Monday when Celestino Caballero dropped the belt. He refused to fight Walters for a purse of $90,000.

Walters will be going into the fight with a 21-0 record, and 19 of those victories were within the distance. Prescott has a record of 26-1 with 17 knockouts

SportsMax, who are helping stage the show, announced that several boxers will be honored at the show - including Michael McCallum, Glen Johnson, Simon Brown, the late Trevor Berbick, former Commonwealth champions Bunny Grant, the late Percy Hayles and Richard 'Shrimpy' Clarke, and Donovan 'Razor' Ruddock.
