Featherweight star Nicholas Walters visits the WBA Headquarters in Panama to receive the super belt ahead of his title defense against undefeated Miguel Marriaga.

Walters, who was bumped to ‘super’ status following his standout win over Nonito Donaire, returns to action next weekend at Madison Square Garden.

The 29 year-old Jamaican is to depart for New York on Monday as the ‘Axe Man’ prepares to put his title on the line for a fourth time.

Opponent Marriaga from Colombia has stopped 18 of his 20 wins and boasts a 90 percent KO ratio against largely second-rate fighters.
