Walters: I'll Do Whatever it Takes To Beat Lomachenko

By Ryan Burton

Former featherweight champion Nicholas Walters (26-0-1) is very motivated to defeat WBO super featherweight champion and top 10 pound-for-pound fighter Vasyl Lomachenko (6-1).

The showdown takes place Saturday night at the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada and will air live on HBO World Championship Boxing. The broadcast will open up with the replay of Andre Ward's controversial pay-per-view unanimous decision victory that took place last Saturday.

The unbeaten Jamaican is fully aware of Lomachenko's decorated amateur career that included two gold medals and his brief professional career that already includes world titles in two divisions.

With that being said, he isn't sure if the Ukrainian has faced anyone who fights like him.

"He has fought a lot of fights so I don't know. My power and speed is a plus for me and I am going to use that plus to my advantage. It is supposed to be a good fight so I  am going to enjoy it," Walters explained.

Walters said that for him coming out of the fight with the victory is the only objective and that he will do whatever it takes to ensure that e leaves the ring with Lomachenko's title.

"I am going to do what it takes to win. I always say an ugly win is better than a pretty loss," Walters told

That was pathetic from Walters. Lomachenkco literally put his hands down and just stood there at the end of one of the rounds and Walters STILL didn't throw a punch. He just killed his whole career.
