I could give Nicholas Walters only one round, the third, against Vasyl Lomachenko and the harsh truth is that he bailed out alarmingly early, earning boos from the sold-out audience.
“I got hit by a bad shot to the left temple in that last [seventh] round,” explained Walters of his surprising capitulation. “He hurt me with lots of shots over and over again. I just couldn’t take it. My corner was concerned about the temple shot. Lomachenko punches you all over the body, not just the head. He’s very fast.”
