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.

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…

Chris Eubank : George Groves Fight Will Never Be 50-50

Chris Eubank : George Groves Fight Will Never Be 50-50

Chris Eubank Jr. - George Groves February 17th 2017

IBO super middleweight world champion Chris Eubank Jr. will be facing WBA world champion George Groves in few days time and this has been predicted by many as a 50-50 fight, when they face off in the World Boxing Super Series super middleweight tournament come 17th of February at Manchester Arena.

The two Champions will lay their titles down for unification on that day but before then, predictions keep floating in and in Eubank's prediction, he sees himself dominating from start to finish but acknowledged its going to be a big fight.

“This is a fight that the public have been demanding for years now, between me and George. It’s a grudge match and we are legitimate rivals. It’s going to be explosive, it’s going to be no holds barred, exciting, fanatic and everything you could want in a super-fight," Eubank told WS County Times.

“I know that because of our styles, we are both exciting and offensive fighters we like to throw our hands, we are not afraid to get into a brawl and get stuck in."

“I believe I have every advantage possible over George Groves coming into this fight, mentally, physically, spiritually, every aspect of boxing I believe I can outperform him.”

“It’s not a 50-50 fight but I’m happy that a lot of the general public believe that it is a 50-50 fight because it makes the occasion much more exciting. I like the fact that people genuinely believe that I can’t win, because when I do do it, and I stop this guy and take his belt and bring it back to Brighton it makes the achievement all the more amazing.”
