Walker, a late replacement for Brit Richard Towers, looked out of shape from the off and looked very much like a fighter who had traveled around the world in the past few days. Despite the late call-up however Walker got off to a dream start dropping Brown to his knees in the opening round with a counter right hand.
Unfortunately for the man known as "Freight train" the opening round knockdown was pretty much his only highlight as "Big Daddy" Browne got back up and started to take over the fight. Browne's power took effect on Walker every time he landed and Walker was dropped in rounds 3, 5 and 6.
Although Walker did have a good round 7, considering the prior 2 rounds anyway, he didn't come out for round 8 suffering an 8th round TKO as a result.
The second notable result came from Japan as part of an historic event.
Former K1 kickboxing champion Kyotaro Fujimoto (7-1, 5) became just the second ever Japanese Heavyweight champion as he defeated Japanese based Ugandan Okello Peter (21-7, 19).
The hard hitting Peter, a former world title contender, was unable to land his famed hard shots as Fujimoto showed off his swiftness and landed his own notable assaults. The shots from Fujimoto were crisp and managed to deck Peter several times before forcing a stoppage late in the 6th round.
This bout saw the Japanese Heavyweight title revived after some 56 years of inactivity, and Kyotaro's victory sees him following in the footsteps of Noburu Kataoka.
Kyotaro already knows who his first defence will be against thanks to thanks to an eliminator on the same card. The eliminator saw Kotatsu Takehara (8-8-3, 3) narrowly out point Rio Hidaka (10-2, 8) to become the #1 contender to the newly revived title.
