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…

Kubrat Pulev Vs Hughie Fury Finalized For Oct 27th In Sofia

Kubrat Pulev Vs Hughie Fury Finalized For Oct 27th In Sofia 

10/8/2018



Hughie Fury has taken a big step to face Kubrat Pulev, who is also making a return to the Heavyweight title mix after year and a half of absence in Sofia, slated for Oct  27th.

The fight is an eliminator for the IBF Heavyweight title held by Anthony Joshua. A fight that has been turned down by Briton Dillian Whyte and American Jarell Miller to decide a title challenger.

Hughie Fury, who lost via points to former WBO Heavyweight Champion Joseph Parker, is a cousin to heavyweight contender Tyson Fury.
“Two have refused so far - Whyte and Miller, but Fury has already said no problem and he will play,” the 37-year-old Pulev (26 - 1) said. “The date is clear - October 27, the fight will be in Sofia. It looks like it’ll be a very interesting fight. He is a good, young boxer.”

Pulev pulled out of a fight with Anthony Joshua in October last year due to a Shoulder injury, giving room for CarloC Takam, a fight that had the IBF, IBO, WBA Heavyweight titles at stake.

“I sustained the injury - I’m a man after all, though I’m almost a super man, but now I’m fully recovered,” Pulev said. “This game (against Joshua) will take place, it’s getting near and I have to win.”

Pulev has only lost ones in his professional career. He lost to Wladimir Klitschko back in 2014 by fifth round Knockout but has since gone on to win five fights in a row.
