    Default Nicholas Walters-Miguel Marriaga --- HBO/BN. Fact.

    Miguel Marriaga? Who? Put him in this site's search engine... never been mentioned.

    Fella is 20-0 (18 ko's). Impressive. Although, of course, he hasn't beaten anybody - does have a half-decent win over a fella called Christopher Martin, who had never been stopped, and took Gary Russell jr the distance after getting smashed by Marriaga (fight is on youtube). But get this - he has two amateur wins over Walters. They're the same age.

    Now obviously amateur results can be dramatically reversed in the pro's. Walters pro form is streets ahead of anything Marriaga has achieved plus he's in his pomp and a top P4P chinning merchant.

    I expect he has improved past Marriaga and will blast him out but....

    1. Unbeaten
    2. 90% KO ratio
    3. Beat opponent before
    4. Same age (so it's not an experienced amateur beating a novice)

    Bookies make that fighter a 7/1 shot.

    Good research and this could end up being competitive or an upset. Looks very intriguing.

    Of course, it could also end up like Miguel Cotto vs. Kelson Pinto. Lol

    I hadn't heard of Marriaga, interesting that he has the wins over him though. Suspect neither of them were by stoppage? This was a voluntary defense as the guy isn't highly ranked, so Walters people must not be to worried. I'm guessing it will go down more like Tyson vs Tillman than MOsley vs Forrest, but you never know.

    This should be a bombs away fight for as long as it goes.

    I think and hope Walters goes on to big things, just a fun effective calculating style. Marriaga will not pull a Precott but looks the same in ring and hopefully invest in the power.

    I was also going to make all the good points you made plus that point but forgot. Honest.

    I honestly was. I read my piece back thinking I already made that point only to see I hadn't.

    We're due a big upset. Walters isn't hard to hit either.

    From what I've read, Walters' people weren't overly excited about this match-up. Marriaga is a live dog with Walters the favorite. I like this fight. I agree bombs away for as long as it lasts. Good post, @Fenster.

    Walters never made weight so loses title on the scales. Cant say I'm that surprised but there goes my Loma vs Walters hopes for now.

    Walters is a huge Featherweight so it isn't a huge shock but I had no idea he was having difficulty making weight. I'm pretty gutted as it takes some of the lustre away from a great fight. Too many guys coming in over the weight limit these days.
