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…

Manchester City Do Not Need Champions League Trophy To Be Successful - De Bruyne

15/8/2018



Manchester City is arguably the best team in the Premier League right now and with a good manager as Pep Guardiola, they have in two years grown from Premier League contenders to Champions but have failed to do well in European competitions.

Kevin De Bruyne, who has since been a key part in Pep Guardiola Premier League winning team, has argued that City don't need to win the Champions League Trophy to be a successful team.

"I don't agree that we have to win the Champions League to be a success. It is a big title to win but in the Champions League you don't need to have the consistency that you need in the league," De Bruyne told the BBC.

"We were great for the whole year, maybe a bit less against Liverpool, and so we were out. It is a tournament, you need to be good at the right time.

"In the league if you have a bad spell then you are running behind. It is a different prospect, cup games are different to a league."


Liverpool had low consistency in the Premier League, finished fourth and were the only team to defeat Manchester City three times last season, twice in the Champions League and ones in the domestic league.

After failing to win trophies, Liverpool embarked on a spending spree, fortified the squad. This the 27 year De Bruyne believes that the spending was necessary, as tbeir rivals, needed to bridge the City gap.

"The main focus is on us. The other teams are always going to push us, Liverpool did what we did last year. They have spent a lot of money but wisely," De Bruyne added.

"They needed some additions and they have got them in the right places. They saw that they had to up the level to come closer to us and we are trying to maintain what we have done last year.

"It will be a good battle between the top sides."
