"The term nephilum, translated ‘giants’ in Genesis 6:4, thus would denote men who ‘fall upon’ or attack others rather than ‘fallen ones’ or ‘giants.’ Scholars who give this explanation of the ‘spirits in prison’ see the sinning angels of Genesis as the same ones to whom Peter referred as ‘delivered' into chains of darkness’ (2 Peter 2:4)"

From: WILLMINGTON’S GUIDE TO THE BIBLE.

Here is Genesis 6:4
"The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them: the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown."

Here is Numbers 13:33
"And there we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, who come of the Nephilim: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight."

There is your sources. I am truly sorry for the miss spelling, which might be the source of your confusion.
