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…

R3: A tight round with the Russian trying to engage more, giving Ryder some problems

R4 : R4: Sirotkin seemingly taking a step back there looking to throw a singular punch then step back however, Ryder continues to apply the pressure and is waiting patiently for the gaps to open up.

R5: Sirotkin catches Ryder a few times with an overhand right and steals the round from the 'Gorilla'.

R6: R6: Ryder lands successive combinations throughout the round and causes Sirotkin some problems - who seems to be tiring. Ryder has a bad cut around his left eye.
