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…

Anthony Joshua Doesn't Want Deontay Wilder Unification Fight

29/6/2018



Former Heavyweight world champion Lennox Lewis has given hii take on the Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder situation, stating out plainly that if both sides had wanted the fight, then the deal and venue issue wouldn't be an issue.

He criticised both teams in tweets for failing to make the fight and also expressed his dissatisfaction with the comments made by AJ and his team.


“My thoughts on @anthonyjoshua and @BronzeBomber situation are that when I was champ, I wanted to face the best to show the world who’s the best. Period,” Lewis stated in his first Tweet. “I’ve heard them both speak on it, but I’ve also seen that AJ has changed his tune. This isn’t a 2yr down the line thing!

“Promoters have their own interest in making most money they can but fighters also carry weight in who they fight. If both sides wanted this fight, it would be happening. End of story. AJ taking Povetkin fight first isn’t a deal breaker 4 Wilder tho. Just don’t like the 2yr. talk.”



He also stated that from his observations gotten from their comments and reaction on the matter, it shows that the WBC Champion wants the fight but the Brits do not really want to give him AJ.


“I’m not in on all the details of #JoshuaWilder negotiations but when I wanted to fight Tyson before retiring, the only thing keeping that fight away was the networks,” Lewis stated in another Tweet. “I told my team and HBO to make it happen … end of story. I don’t want to hear about anything else!”

“[The] way I see it AJ is the man,” Lewis Tweeted. “He gets to choose time and place for first fight. I’d make Wilder come to me also … but from what I see from Wilder, he’s willing to … and this is same attitude I would have. When the HW division finally has a pulse, we need action, not talk!”
