WBA featherweight champion Nicholas “The Axeman” Walters will make his second title defense against former two-division titleholder Vic Darchynian in Macao on May 31. The bout will be the co-main event fight to the Nonito Donaire-Simpiwe Vityeka clash promoted by Top Rank. “We are happy that Nicholas will be fighting a boxer of the quality and name-recognition of Vic Darchinyan,” declared Walters’ manager Jacques Deschamps. The Jamaican-born Walters brings in a record of 23-0 with 19 KOs while the veteran Darchinyan, a former super-flyweight and bantamweight champion, has a 39-6-1 slate.
