WBO featherweight champion Shakur Stevenson made a successful 130 pound debut against Felix Caraballo, working him down to a sixth round stoppage victory in a non title fight at the MGM Grand Conference Center on Tuesday night.

Stevenson toyed with his opponent, breaking him down with every shot before, eventually ending the fight with a big body shot in the sixth round. The shot sent Caraballo to his knees and his gloves on the canvas and while stuck there because of the pains, the referee Tony Weeks was forced to end the fight at exactly 1:31 of the sixth.

With the win, the 2016 silver medallist Stevenson retained his unbeaten record and improved to (14-0, 8KOs). Stevenson was placed a 100-1 favourite, heading into the fight and he proved right the bookmarkers by winning all the five rounds (50-44, 50-44, 50-43) before the stoppage, dropping Caraballo (13-2-2, 9 KOs) twice in the first round…

Canelo Alvarez, Set To Make The Scorecards Useless In GGG Rematch
8/2/2018


Canelo-GGG II is set to trill us ones again as the last on May 5th, for Cinco De Mayo weekend and the Mexican superstar is set to make the scorecards useless as their last class was seen as an unfair decision from the judges.

Their first Clash was explosive and much more competitive than expected but most of the fans and pundits saw the split draw as a controversial one, as they expected the IBF, WBA, WBC, IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs). to win the Bout.

Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (49-1-2, 33 KOs) in his last Bout with GGG in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena, believes that most pundits expected him to be knocked out by Golovkin but got shocked at the results.

This has prompted him to work on his Knockout techniques as he is training for the fight of his life. He plans on clearing doubts and cementing his legacy in the middleweight division.

Speaking to ESPN he said "And everyone already knows what happened. I made my fight and I think I won it but at the end the judges saw it as a draw. For that reason this second fight will be more interesting, more important," said Canelo to ESPN Deportes.
"This time the judges will not have to decide the result with their scores ... I'm going to win my fight by knockout ... I'll be ready to win that way," Canelo argued.

"I will be in my best shape. I'm going to have a great fight and I'm confident of winning. And I know that this will be a more interesting fight and that people will enjoy it better than the first," Canelo said.
