Most boxing fans are familiar with Olympic gold medalist Vasyl Lomachenko and his much lauded professional debut. Nicholas Walters, however, came onto the radar after knocking out both Vic Darchinyan and Nonito Donaire in 2014, truly living up to his nickname of "Axeman".
When comparing the fighters, Walters has the edge when it comes to knockout power, while Lomachenko is the faster boxer who has outstanding combination punching. it will be interesting to see if Walters will be able to counter punch with the fast hands of Lomachenko.
You could argue that this will be the sternest test for Lomachenko, despite the fact that he lost to Orlando Salido in a controversial fight that featured low blows repeatedly landing on the Ukrainian with no help from the referee.
Walters is undefeated and the lone blemish on his record, a draw with Jorge Sosa, was also highly disputed and was considered one of the worst decisions in 2015.
