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…

Danny Jacobs Backs Himself Against Danny Jacobs : Let's Hope The Judges Are Fair, When I Face Canelo Alvarez

WBC and WBA middleweight champion Saul Canelo Alvarez and IBF middleweight champion Danny Jacobs will both be back in the ring for a unification fight May 4.

T-mobile Arena is the front runner for the fight and the confirmation of the fight leaves former champion Golovkin facing a wait until the second half of 2019 before a trilogy fight.

Visibly the underdog into the fight, Jacobs sees himself with more advantages than his upcoming opponent and just as every fighter who faces Canelo Alvarez, seem a little scared of biased Judges.

"Let's hope the judges are fair. I'm definitely one of the strongest opponents Canelo has faced. 'GGG' is not as fast as me. I am taller, I have more range, and I think I'll win, I'll use my best attributes, and I'll win by decision or even by knockout," Jacobs told Fighthype.com.
"I am a completely different athlete, I am multifaceted, I do not have to study what Golovkin did (against Canelo), it is not new for me to achieve the impossible, I won the opportunity and I am proud, my legacy is at stake."

Canelo Alvarez has two belts in his possession and a win will leave one belt left to be undisputed at middleweight. Demetrius Andrade holds the WBO version of the middleweight titles.
