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…

Terence Crawford - My LayOff Gave Me Time To Heal

Terence Crawford will step into the ring on June 9th against Jeff Horn, having spent over ten months out,  since he fought Julius Indongo to unify the 140 before moving up to 147, which he believes has given him to heal.

The former two division champion will be hoping to become a three-weight world champion, when he faces Jeff Horn for the WBO championship and his layoff before this fight will be the longest layoff in his professional career.


“It gives your body time to heal,” Crawford told BoxingScene. “Some people tend to keep fighting and fighting and fighting, pushing their body to the limit. And then, the next thing you know, your body breaks down and you start having a lot of injuries and a lot of aches and pains. So I’ve just taken it as maybe my body needed that rest because I have been going hard and have been fighting very often and frequently.”

“Being active, of course it keeps you sharp, being that you’re in the ring more often, But I feel that I’ve got the ability and the skill and the mindset to adjust to not being in the ring for such a long time and I’ll make the best of it.”
