After a tentative start by both boxers Walters stepped up the tempo in round four sending Prescott to his knees with a crisp left hook.
The Axeman then took control, again flooring Prescott in round five of the 12-round bout for the vacant WBA title. The end came when Walters sent a game Prescott to the canvas in the seventh forcing the referee to call a halt to the bout.
The Jamaican in his victory has created history being the first local boxer to win a world title on home soil.
