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…

Adrien Broner And Jessie Vargas Battle Out A Majority Draw

Adrien Broner and Jessie Vargas made a good show with their back and forth dog fight which ended up with a majority Draw on Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Former four division champion  Adrien Broner (33-3-1, 24 KOs, 1 NC) showed he had gone over his defeat to four-division champion Mikey Garcia (38-0, 30 KOs) with a good show against Vargas (28-2-1, 10 KOs) which had to go to the judges - Julie Lederman, scored the fight for Broner (115-113) while Eric Marlinski and Kevin Morgan, both of whom scored the 12-round, 144-pound fight event even (114-114).

The fighters went back and forth with exchanges right from the first round bell, hammering head and body with left hooks hand upper cuts but the interesting part of the fight came after the ninth round.

Both fighters went into an exciting brawl at the 10th, with Broner getting the better of his opponent and leaving Vargas bloodied and swollen by the end of the 10th.

Broner clearly won the last three round, winning the eleventh clearly, where he stalked and out-landed Vargas, whose face was swelling and bleeding and in the twelveth round, the two seemed to have tired and no fighter landed many power shots during those final three minutes.
