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…

Mexicans Want Canelo Alvarez To KO GGG In The Rematch

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya says that every one wants to see Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs), whom he promotes  secures a knockout victory over IBO, WBC, WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs), in their upcoming Bout in September.

The fight will be a rematch to a fight that ended with a controversial splits draw back in September 2017. A rematch was earlier scheduled for my 5th but Canelo pulled out due to controversy arising from his testing positive to clenbuterol earlier this year.

It is believed by the GGG team Canelo's reputation has been affected by the drug test issue but the Golden Boy Promotions CEO disagrees with that.

"Right now in Mexico, Canelo is bigger and more popular than ever because clenbuterol is the normal thing there," De La Hoya said to Albert Perez. "There are no regulations, so when you eat meat you will have clenbuterol in your system. The whole country wants him to knock out GGG."

Both sides have had issues over the fight purse, which has been the reasons for the delay. Canelo Alvarez wanted the bigger share of the purse due to the fact that he is the star and De La Hoya agrees with that.

"Canelo wanted a bigger piece of the purse for obvious reasons. He is the star and the main attraction. He can fight twice and get the same amount of money he would have won in a bout against Golovkin. However, Golovkin would have to fight like 15 times to get what he would get against Canelo,"
