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.

With the win, the 2016 silver medallist Stevenson retained his unbeaten record and improved to (14-0, 8KOs).

The IBF Orders Jacobs vs. Derevyanchenko Purse Bid For July Fifth

26/6/2018



The IBF has ordered a purse bid for a fight between  between No. 1 ranked Sergiy Derevyanchenko and No. 3 ranked Daniel Jacobs for their version of world Middleweight Title.

Eddie Hearn has been seen as a difficult promoter to work with and since the order for the title after Gennedy (GGG)  Golovkin got striped of it, no progress is observed. Lou DiBella, Derevyanchenko’s promoter, asked the IBF to call for the purse bid because he hasn’t made progress on a deal.

Brooklyn’s Jacobs(34-2, 29 KOs)  and Derevyanchenko (12-0, 10 KOs) are friends and have sparred against one another in it he past but are still ready to fight for the 160 pound title.

The IBF stripped GGG of the title after he failed to adhere to an agreement to face Derevyanchenko after his May 5th fight with Vanes Martirosyan.
