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).

Most of the hype around this contest, was Menayothin matching Mayweather's record, it remains evidently clear, Mayweather's record is a universe above the competition that Menayothin has faced at 105-pounds but with Menayothin still active, the 50-0 Record might be something to worry less about .

Estrada was coming from a four fight winning streak to face The Thai champion  after defeating former world champion Saul Juarez from last May.

World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman flew out to the contest to watch it from ringside,
