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…

Mikey Garcia Drops And Decisions Robert Easter to Unify IBF And WBC Titles

29/7/2018



Mikey Garcia was deemed overrated by Robert Easter before their fight on Saturday night but Garcia did more than enough to prove him wrong.

Garcia 39-0 (30 KOs) scored a knockdown in the third and defeated Easter to unify the IBF, WBC lightweight titles in front a 12,560  at  the Staples Center on Saturday night.

Garcia won the fight on all three score cards, Larry Hazzard Jr. scored Garcia a 117-110 winner. Edward Hernandez had Garcia ahead 116-111 after 12 rounds, and Steve Weisfeld credited Garcia with a 118-109 victory.

Robert Easter lost for the first time in his 5½ year professional career dropping to (21-1, 14 KOs)
“I knew he was a tough opponent,” Garcia told Showtime’s Jim Gray in the ring. “He’s a tough warrior. He gave a great fight, but I was the better fighter. I was in control of the fight and I did what I had to do to win.”

“He had a game plan to use that reach,” Garcia said. “Once I started getting into rhythm, we took control. I just had to wait [for] my time. He has some good hand speed, so I just had to be patient and careful.”

Garcia defended his WBC Title for the first time since knocking out Dejan Zlaticanin in the third round  to win thh strap back in January 2017.
