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…

Jose Mourinho And Pep Guardiola Mentality Comparisons as they Welcome The Weekend

Jose Mourinho And Pep Guardiola Mentality Comparisons as they Welcome The Weekend


Manchester United Boss Jose Mourinho has from his comments given up on the title race this season due to the 15 point lead the Pep Guardiola side Manchester City have over United at the top of the table.

Dropping a melancholic statement at the press conference against their Clash with Huddersfield at Old Trafford this weekend, showed how slim he saw Manchester United's chances of closing in on Manchester City and the possibility of winning the league.

Manchester City Are ahead with 15 points as they head into the weekend, with a possibility of making it 18 points before Manchester United take on Huddersfield in their late kickoff but the Manchester United Boss would have faired better if he had the mentality as the City boss.

If Manchester United were to lead the league with 18 points, Jose Mourinho would have given himself another name, maybe " The GOAT" of the coaching Job as he has done in the past which has brought in the names " The Chosen One" but notwithstanding Guardiola still gave out a humble statement and never gave up the possibility of losing all 15 points before the end of the season. Compare statements from the two biggest coaches in the Premier League.

"It's about winning the next one and then I don't know what's going to happen.

"Maybe we have to postpone games, it doesn't matter. What is important is to try and fight to the end to be champions. That's what counts the most. The rest makes no sense, it is not important.

"I know the distance, 15 points, is quite good in this moment. It was the same three, four or five games before, but in football, in sport, anything can happen.

"We are good today, but tomorrow we can be bad. A lot of things can happen. The most important thing we have done so far is focus on the next game. 

"Then after we will see. Until everything is done, you have to be prepared for anything to happen, in my experience.

"I always remember when Sir Alex said in 2005-06 -- we won the second title with Chelsea -- we need to improve a lot because they have raised the bar to such a level.

"Chelsea won two titles in a row, the second title was easier than the first and then the biggest manager in the Premier League said Manchester United needed to improve a lot.
"That was the click for the improvement of the team. In 2006-2007, Manchester United won the title back. It has to be like that."

"It is not just about the points and finishing in the top four, which is important.
"Try to finish second. Try to play the best we can and improve the players individually and be the best possible team at the end of the season.

"Then we must try to start next season in a good way, like we did this season, but try to be consistent and try not to lose points like we did this season in some matches where we shouldn't."
