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…

Deontay Wilder : I Know People Get Annoyed The Way I Speak, I understand

Deontay Wilder - Luis Ortiz open workout

WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder has been on IBF, IBO, WBA Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua trail for months now and some will agree how tired they are of his rantings and knockout claims, which we at least have an idea about.

Wilder believes his way of speaking is a go way of promoting his career, fights and his brand and he isn't planning on stopping as its a way he feels he could land himself big money fights like the showdown with the IBF, IBO, WBA champion Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs).

Before his big anticipated Clash with Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) will face Cuban southpaw Luis Ortiz (28-0, 24 KOs, 2 NC) on March 3 in Brooklyn and during his open workout ahead of this clash, he told show time about his promotional technique.

“People need to know who the heavyweight champion of the world is,” Wilder said. “America’s got a bad man. We got an ass-whooper right here in America. I think it’s important people understand that and people should know who that is. And, you know, for that reason, that’s why I do the things I do. That’s why I’m so competitive. That’s why I speak the way I speak.

“Sometimes, you know, it may annoy people, it may get on people’s nerves. I never hear them in front of my face, but I understand it. I do it to show people that I’m gonna speak it and you’re gonna see me deliver it. And I think you get the most respect when you say you’re gonna do something and you do it.”

“Look at Ali – people hated him,” Wilder said. “They said he was a big mouth, that he ran his mouth too much. But he proved himself many a times. And that’s the things I wanna do. I wanna speak what I say I’m gonna do, and you can watch me work.”
