WBA featherweight champion Nicholas Walters (25-0, 21KOs) has no regrets about opening himself up to a big counter from Nonito Donaire in their second round of their fight on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Walters was on wobbly legs after Donaire checked his chin with a big counter at the end of the second. He quickly recovered between rounds and came back to drop Donaire in the third.

"You have to take chances in boxing. That's why I have so many knockouts, because I take chances. I give guys the opportunity and then I take shots off the opportunity, Walters told

"I really worked hard for this fight. I'm not sure what hand but he caught with a good shot though. He caught me with a very good shot. When he hit me I knew, I was a little bit loose. But I had an excellent training camp for this fight."

Walters eventually broke Donaire down and put him away with a big counter of his own in the sixth round. He saw the perfect opening and caught Nonito flush on the head to drop him face-first.

"I was the bigger, the younger and the quicker guy in the ring. And I always study with intelligence. And I told all you guys the knockout would come and when it would come I was going to seize it," Walters said.
