Heavy-hitting Nicholas Walters believes Vasyl Lomachenko has not faced anybody like him before, ahead of their WBO World Super-Featherweight clash in Las Vegas, live on BoxNation.
Walters has not boxed since last December but the Jamaican is unbeaten and presents a serious threat to Lomachenko’s crown.
“I’m feeling great. My people have come over here for the victory and we’re going to go back with the victory,” he told journalists this week.
“We always wanted to fight him. He’s a great fighter but I’m different to every opponent he’s faced. My power and speed is a plus for me. I’m going to use that to my advantage.”
The ‘Axe Man’ will be hoping to chop through his Ukrainian opponent’s slick defence and impeccable timing in the ring.
“He’s not undefeated, so there is always things for you to pick up. We’re all human, he’s not perfect. If he makes mistakes then he’ll pay,” added Walters.
“I don’t think he’s going to stay in the pocket. It would be pretty deadly for him to do that. If he does stay in the pocket then I’m going to enjoy myself, I don’t know about him!”
Lomachenko’s only professional defeat came against the wily Orlando Salido in just his second bout. It was a rough and dirty affair, and Walters hinted that similar tactics could pay off again.
“I’m going to do what it takes to win. You know we say ‘an ugly win is better than a pretty loss!’”
