In what has to be considered (somewhat of) an upset, at the StubHub Center in Carson City, California, Jamaica’s Nicholas “Axeman” Walters, 25-0, 21 KO’s lived up to his fearsome reputation by knocking out Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire, 33-3, 21 KO’s in six one-sided brutal rounds. Donaire who was once thought to be invincible earlier in his career as a bantamweight was all too human at featherweight against the power punching Walters. Walters was just too big, too fast and too powerful for Donaire to overcome. Walters dropped Donaire to the canvas in the third round. It was the very first knockdown of Donaire’s illustrious career. With the convincing win, Walters successfully annexed Donaire’s WBA super world featherweight title while still maintaining his undefeated pro record.
