The fight for the WBO World Super-Featherweight Title between Ukrainian fighter Vasyl Lomachenko and Jamaican Nicholas Walters took place in Las Vegas.

The battle began well. Both fighters were keeping distance and carefully worked jabs. But after a brief lull, boxers began to unfold and punch combinations. Both Lomachenko and Walters defended well, working with the body, thus avoiding punches.

But over the first three rounds Lomachenko accelerated more and more, increasing the intensity of his attacks. First Walters restrained the onslaught, but sometimes missed side and uppercut punches. It seemed that after this Walters would back down, but he was able to get together and try to attack in the fifth round, but the Jamaican fuse was only enough for half of the round, and then Lomachenko got back to business.

In the sixth round, Lomachenko was able to show all his superiority in the physical shape over rival, just circling around Walters, attacking from all sides. In the next series, in which Walters missed four strikes to the head, it became clear that Walters would not last the whole fight.
