Walters Spars with Super Lightweight Champion for Upcoming Bout

Former world champion Nicholas Walters (28-1-1, 22 KOs) shared insights into his preparation for his next match – his third since returning to boxing. The 38-year-old Jamaican's next opponent will be 24-year-old American Joseph Adorno (18-3-2, 15 KOs).

"I feel great. My body's in good shape, and my mind is ready. I'm hoping to go there on the 27th and put on a great performance. If you want to be great, you need to take on tough fights. Adorno is a good fighter, and we want to show that we're still in the game. Since my return, I've had two good eight-round fights. The first went the distance, and in the second, I stopped the guy in the second round. The upcoming fight is a real comeback match, a real test. I'm definitely looking forward to it. I want to give the fans a really good show.

I've been working in Las Vegas for this fight with a good coach, Jaime Moreno. We're building a new, fresh team. We visited the Top Rank gym and many other gyms. I've had sparring sessions with Rolando Romero, Alan Garcia, Emiliano Moreno; I've had a lot of good sparring," Walters told BoxingScene.

On March 27, Nicholas Walters will have his third fight after returning to boxing. From 2016 to 2023, he didn't box – he left the sport after losing to Vasyl Lomachenko. The Jamaican explained why he lost that fight.
