The THiNKiNG Man's Game: Never Hook With a Hooker

Nicholas Walters vs. Nonito Donaire

BOXING SENSE FOR GENUINE BOXING FANS

This is a Limited Edition blog. That means, the above fight (video) is not expected to

be available for long. Readers in the Caribbean as well as Australia, New Zealand, the

States & Americas, Europe or Africa who cannot access the fight via this blog might

locate it on Youtube. We say Never Hook With a Hooker because the hook that ex-

exposed Nonito Donaire's left side is a full-body punch demanding rotation. And

if your opponent's balance is better than yours, you will be countered. Walters

flat-footed defense though, worries me. And Roy Jones Jnr. correctly noted,

not neutralized by Flash, but possibly may, by Guillermo Rigondeaux.

We knew prior to the fight that it wouldn't go past eight or nine rounds.

And that's precisely what we got. Both carry fight-ending power hooks.

Both are deadly counterpunchers. But as seen in Round 6, it was a

double counterpunch from by the efficient Nicholas Walterswho

rarely used his right hand as part of his defense while letting

his reach, nasty (i.e., stinging) body shots, jabs and hooks,

which, with chess-minded execution, did the talking

that spelled the end for the favoredFilipino Flash.

Sure clearly, 126 has been problematic for Nonito

Donaire but while fights with now diminished

Abner Mares, or undefeated Leo Santa Cruz

and Carl Frampton may appear tempting,

I think the larger question only the 31

year old fighter can/should answer

first, is whether or not he wants

any part of the Sweet Science.

Going down to 122 to beat

smaller opponents is not

like Rigondeaux II, the

answer. Rigondeaux'
