“Axe Man”

At the age of 30, Nicholas is an eight-year pro. A former WBA featherweight “super” world champion, he won the WBA featherweight world title in December, 2012, and made three successful title defenses. In the WBA’s February, 2015 rankings, he was named “super” world champion. Before his pro debut, he was an amateur standout.

He won all four of his world championship fights by knockout, and has knocked out 10 of his last 14 opponents.

In his last fight on December 19, 2015, in Verona, New York, Nicholas moved up to the 130-pound division for the first time and had a very controversial 10-round draw against Jason Sosa.

After the fight, Dan Rafael wrote on ESPN.com [excerpts]: Walters was horribly ripped off and given a draw with Sosa in a fight in which he totally dominated.

The scoring [94-94 Sosa, 95-95, 95-95] was as bad as it gets. Literally every single member of the ringside media had Walters winning easily, mostly by 10-0 or 9-1 in rounds. Social media was awash with landslides for Walters. The scores rendered by the judges were absolutely laughable.

Yes, Sosa was game and ready to fight. He showed a lot of heart, landed some nice shots and has nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, most people probably would want to see him again because of his spirited effort.
