Team Walters Pleased With Vic Darchinyan Defense

WBA Featherweight Champion, Jamaican Nicholas Walters (23-0) will face Armenian former World Champion Vic Darchinyan (39-6-1) on his second title defense scheduled for May 31st at the Venetian in Macao, China.

Walters was scheduled to defend against #14 ranked Alejandro Perez (19-4-1) who recently lost a split decision to Juan Carlos Martinez (19-14-1) in which was supposed to be a tune up fight.

According to Walters´manager Jacques Deschamps, the names of high ranked Ukranian Oleg Yefimovych and Japanese Satoshi Hosono were considered by top Rank Promotions as possible challengers.

“We had to wait until the release of the WBA rankings and fortunately the name of Darchinyan emerged as a solution for the promoter because he is better known worldwide than Yefimovych or Hosono,” said Deschamps.

 “Now Nicholas will face an experienced fighter with a complicated style, strong puncher and southpaw stance which makes this a way more difficult match than the original one against Perez, but these are the fights we need to demonstrate the quality of Walters. It´s a tougher fight but we accepted because we trust Nicholas and it is important for him to be on the same card of Nonito Donaire vs Simpiwe Vetyeka”, added the manager.

Vic redeemed himself somewhat with his last performance. He would undoubtedly be Walter's best opponent to date. If Walters wants to get to the top, this is one test he needs to pass with flying colors.
