Without ever letting himself bask in the viral KO fame, Walker doesn’t feel any pressure to duplicate it. As capable as he is of show stopping knockouts every fight, he’s sticking to the script. Prepare for the opponent, not viral tweets. If the game is still the same, the result will be similar.
Walker has already placed a keen eye on opponent, Devorius Tubbs, and while massive respect will be paid to the Lion Fight Super Cruiserweight Title challenger, Walker already sees his path to victory yet again.

“I know he’s a coach,” Walker said. “With coaches they have a good eye of seeing things because they’re always holding pads and stuff like that. You know how the body looks if an elbow is coming or a kick is coming or a punch is coming, but I know that he throws a lot of overhands and he doesn’t like pressure. I have to put the pressure on him. I have to make him freeze because he likes to put his hands up and shell up. I see my advantage.”
