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…

Derren Till Responds To Critics About Controversial Family Comments

Darren Till was brought under fire by critics, for comments he made back stage at the UFC227 saying, he didn't care about his pregnant girlfriend and Daughter.

“You can’t have worries outside of this game,” Till told reporters backstage last week at UFC 227. “I’ve got a girlfriend who’s nearly seven months pregnant. I don’t really care. I’ve got a daughter in Brazil right now who I haven’t seen for one year. I don’t really care. I just care about legacy and greatness. That’s what I’m in this for.”

He acknowledged he might have been a little too hard on his family, saying such things to the press but said those words don't have the magnitude the critics are giving it.


“People just don’t understand how it works, high-level fighting,” Till told the “Obviously Fight Talk” podcast. “They look for any opportunity to be offended. It’s just online trolls. They just haven’t got a clue.”

“My girlfriend and my daughter, they know what’s what, (My girlfriend) was right next to me when I was giving that interview, and she was laughing.

“Some people just need to stop trying to be offended. It might have come off as I don’t give two (expletive), but right now, it’s all about me until September. I have to be selfish. After the fight, everyone knows it’s downtime and holidays and going to see my daughter.”

“There were some days I couldn’t eat, because I just gave my whole life to the fighting, and it’s now paying off”.


Till will face Woodley on Sept. 8 in Dallas, for a chance to grab the UFC Welterweight title and will take a trip to Liverpool and then back to Las Vegas, where he plans to utilize the UFC’s Performance Institute to help him shed weight early
