Shakur Stevenson Breaks Down Felix Caraballo, Stops Him In Six ↑ Grab this Headline Animator
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…

Adonis Stevenson Vs Oleksandr Gvozdyk Ordered By WBC

18/6/2018



WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis ‘Superman’ Stevenson (29-1, 24 KOs) has been ordered by the WBC to defend his title against No. 1 contender Oleksandr Gvozdyk (15-0, 12 KOs).

The WBC had initially ordered a rematch with Badou Jack, after both battled to a split draw but it seems they will preferably make him take his first mandatory fight, since winning the title back in 2013, before facing Badou Jack again.

Gvozdyk is the interim WBC 175lb champion and Stevenson has defended the title 9 times without facing his mandatory. This might prompt the WBC to add pressure on Stevenson, who might drag his feet or offer Gvozdyk a step aside fee.

The purse bid for the fight is set for July 2nd and some assurance from Top Rank Boss president Carl Moretti shows how serious they are concerning the fight.

“We’d like the fight to happen sooner rather than later,” Top Rank president Carl Moretti said to ESPN.com. “Whatever happens at the purse bid, if we don’t make a deal, will dictate when and where the fight happens.”
