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…

Former World Champions Brandon Rios (35-4-1, 26 KO’s) and Humberto Soto (68-9-2, 37 KO’s) will exchange leather for one more time at the  Municipal Auditorium in Tijuana on Saturday, February 23.

Both fighters are looking for a way back into title contention and a loss to any of the two will leave retirement, a strong option.

Brandon Rios, the younger of the two is a seasoned brawler. Fought many wars which made him a fan friendly fighter but has forty less fights than Soto at this stage of his career and his style might never allow a career that long.

Soto on the other hand, has won WBA featherweight, the WBO and WBC super featherweight and the WBC lightweight titles in his trophy case and will be heading into his 80th fight in 22 professional year. He will be fighting for the first time at welterweight his highest ever fighting limit and might be his final.

The fight brings in the question marks on what is really left of the two former Champions with both planning to make it back to the big stage, if victorious.
