Nicholas Walters scored the biggest victory of his career and his fifth consecutive knockout in stunning fashion on Saturday and the 28-year-old Jamaican fighter’s appetite for destruction has hardly been satiated.

Cebu CC grabs seven-point PAL Ladies lead over SW-Masters
CEBU City – Darkhorse Cebu Country Club, getting a huge lift from fragile-looking Lois Kaye Go, served notice of its readiness to finally lift the PAL Ladies Interclub Championship Division diadem by shooting an opening 281 points for a seven-point lead over Manila Southwoods-Masters.
The 14-year-old Go had four birdies that went with two bogeys and a pick-up on No. 10, for a one-over-par worth 53 points and Cebu CC, whose men’s team lorded it over the Regular Division for two years from 2012, got another 52 from Mary Kim Hong to set the pace.
SW-Masters, which is playing just seven players here, struggled with Sofia Chabon’s 51 leading the team. Annika Cedo never got to figure out the slow greens of the Alta Vista layout here and submitted just 48 points.
