The opponent for Zach Walters’ Feb 23 WBC African Boxing Union title fight has been changed. Originally scheduled to face Marlon “Rumblin’ Man” Hayes (23-10 with 11kayos), Walters’ agenda now shows crafty 37 year old veteran Carl “The Squirrel” Daniels (50-11 with 32 kayos) as his next hurdle.
You’ll remember Daniels as the man who defeated Fabulous Fred Moore of Rochester at Grand Casino Hinckley back in December. It’s probably fair to say that Daniels is a better fit for Walters. First of all, he’s a light heavyweight, unlike Hayes, who is a cruiserweight. Also, he’s bit of an upgrade over Hayes, who despite his impressive record has suffered five straight losses.
