Lomachenko vs Walters odds
Are the odds well-placed?
Walters, 26-0-1, 21 KO's, from Jamaica, is a hard hitting puncher whose biggest win came against Nonito Donaire via TKO.
Lomachenko, from Ukraine, 6-1, 4 KO's is a skillful boxer who has good power and has proven to be a complete fighter.
Despite Walters's devastating knockout power, he is a heavy underdog against Lomachenko.
Walters has more fights as a professional but no where Lomachenko's overall experience when the amateur level is taken into account.
Although Lomachenko is the clear favorite in tonight's bout it really will come down to whether Walters finds that big solid punch that can change the complexion of more than just the fight, but an entire division.
Lomachenko is arguably the best fighter at super featherweight, but one has to consider that if he takes another loss Walters may have a claim as the top gun of the division along with fighters such as Francisco Vargas and Jason Sosa.
Walters could be the man who knocks out the highly decorated Ukrainian fighter, just imagine what it could do for his career. Higher purses will definitely be in order as well as bigger high profile fights. There is always the possibly of moving up another weight class as well.
