GIF: Nicholas Walters destroys Vic Darchinyan with left hook in Macau

Vic Darchinyan was knocked out with a vicious left hook today in Macau, as Nicholas Walters stayed unbeaten and retained his belt.

Nicholas Walters improved to 24-0 with his 20th knockout win this morning in Macau, nearly taking Vic Darchinyan's head off in the fifth round of their WBA "regular" featherweight title fight, retaining his belt in what was a breakthrough performance for the previously-unknown paper world champion.

Walters had already dropped Darchinyan (39-7-1, 28 KO) in the second round on an uppercut when Darchinyan got a bit too cocky (as he'll do), but it was round five where he did the real damage, knocking Darchinyan down a second time, this time badly hurting him, and then finishing off a still-reeling Darchinyan with a counter left hook.

Here's the knockout shot:

Walters may now be in line to face the Donaire-Vetyeka winner, and surely will want that fight, as he currently holds the WBA "regular" featherweight title, while they're fighting for Vetyeka's WBA "super" belt at 126 pounds, which Vetyeka won from long-reigning champ Chris John.

What did you think of Walters and the KO?
