Vasyl next for Donaire-Walters winner?

By Dan Rafael | ESPN.com

Vasyl Lomachenko could be in line for a fight against the winner of Nonito Donaire-Nicholas Walters.
The bout Saturday night between featherweight titleholder Nonito Donaire and secondary beltholder Nicholas Walters (HBO, 10 ET/PT) at the sold-out StubHub Center in Carson, California, on the Gennady Golovkin-Marco Antonio Rubio undercard shapes up to be very interesting.

He also promotes two of the other world titleholders, Evgeny Gradovich (19-0, 9 KOs) and Vasyl Lomachenko (2-1, 1 KO), the brilliant two-time Olympic gold medalist, whose pro record is deceiving.

If Arum has his way -- and he hopes HBO will ante up for it -- he would like to match the winner of Donaire-Walters with Lomachenko, assuming he defeats Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo (52-1, 33 KOs) on Nov. 22 on the Manny Pacquiao-Chris Algieri HBO PPV undercard.

"The winner of Donaire-Walters against Lomachenko is a massive, massive fight, especially if it's Donaire who wins," Arum told ESPN.com. "I would look forward to matching Saturday's winner with Lomachenko if he beats the Thai guy, who is a tough opponent with a great record.

What a joke. Boxing politics at it's best. This guy is 2-1, and he's still being talked about for title shots! The other fighters in his division who are getting passed over while he gets that title shot have got to be furious.

He isn't 2-1, he is like 8-1, and he just spanked Russell Jr.

Lomachenko beats walters easily. Tailor made style. Too much skills.

Yes Vasyl will be too much for Walters.

I doubt anything Walters can offer is greater than what Salido (including dirty/veteran tactics) dished out to Vasyl.

Plus the gap in boxing skills will be too much. Vasyl isn't Donaire size and skill-wise.

Vasyl is a joke. He needs to man up and fight salido again but he probably doesn't want that fight. Waters will KO Loma

They're not in the same weight class and haven't been for some time.
