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, Joseph Parker and Anthony Joshua

WBO Heavyweight champion Joseph Parker (24-0, 18 KOs) will be fighting IBF, IBO, WBA champion Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales on March 31st, which has sparked predictions everywhere in the Boxing world.

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) has predicted that the WBO Heavyweight Champion will give Joshua a tough time during their unification and might even win the fight but believes that Joshua has everything required to win the fight.

Tipping Joshua to win, he made clear he didn't want Parker to win though wishing him the best in the fight "I'd be lying if I said I want Joseph Parker to win. But I wish Joseph Parker the best," Wilder told Newshub.

"But the reason that me and Joshua is a highly anticipated fight is that the world wants to see and it will bring the heavyweight division back to its top peak.
"But anything can happen in boxing and we all have to keep in mind that the head isn't meant to be hit in the first place, so if you get hit in a certain way you can go. This is a brutal sport."

"Parker will also have to be mobile which I think he will do a pretty good job of. The things I'm telling you now I've told him before, because we talk,"

"He is going to have to continue to punch while he moves and keep his head moving. If he can do that, he will see openings and see some of the weakness Joshua has."

He also made mention of Joshua's physic, which looks more muscular by the day advising the fans, it isn't a sign of victory.
"Just because a person looks more muscular and looks like they have it all down pat doesn’t mean they are going to destroy everybody," Wilder said.

"I tell people that I would rather be the part then look the part, looking the part isn’t going to get me nowhere. I've seen many people look the part but when it's time to perform in a place where it really matters, they can't pull the trigger.

"I think Parker is good at where he is to be a little bit slender, not having too much muscle because when you start bulling too much muscle mass your flexibility starts to decrease."
