Nonito Donaire vs Nicholas Walters. Finally a good undercard fight on HBO.
The co-main event to Golovkin vs Rubio will be Nonito Donaire vs Nicholas Walters. This will be a great fight and is one of the rare good undercard/co main event fights which have been shown on HBO & Showtime during 2014. It seems as though undercards are now full of showcase fights which are really at an ESPN standard, as a result of Al Haymon and other major players in boxing having way to much power. Cards like this are what boxing needs to get the sport big again. Casual sport fans are turned off by scorecard robberies and weak undercards. Finally Donaire vs Walters entices people to get out to the card, which not suprisingly has also sold a lot of tickets as a result of this.
