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.

Jarrell Miller Shoves Anthony Joshua

Anthony Joshua will defend his WBO, WBA, IBF, IBO world heavyweight titles against Jarrell Miller at Madison Square Garden on June 1st and they are both trash talking and promoting the fights, predictions have already started trooping in. 

The first of those comes from Light Heavyweight contender Lawrence Okolie, who predicts that the fight won't be easy but his fellow Brit Anthony Joshua will stop Miller in mid rounds. 

“It will be a good win, but it won’t be comfortable,” he exclusively told Starsport.
“Physically, Miller’s such a big guy and he’ll be coming all in. 
“Grappling, heads, doing whatever it takes to bust up AJ. But AJ should be able to bust him up much faster, so I think that AJ will get a mid-round stoppage just from lightning speed shots over and over again.”

Lawrence Okolie might be a young fighter and has only been in the ring eleven times but has been able to rack up domestic titles at the light heavyweight division, wwhic includes British and Commonwealth light heavyweight titles after defeating Matty Askin and Luke Watkins, while also collecting the WBA Continental strap from Isaac Chamberlain.

He recently sparred with Tyson Fury ahead of his fight with WBC Heavyweight World Champion Deontay Wilder and had also been in sparring sessions with IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO world Champion Anthony Joshua. Asked about his experiences with the Champions.
“I feel like we both left camp with learning,” he summarised when recalling that spar with the ‘Gypsy King’.
“I was dealing with a taller opponent, a tricky opponent. Fury, he had to deal with my speed and athleticism.
“So it was good all round. It was good to see how he works.
“It was good to see the difference between someone physical and someone who prefers boxing. It was all good.”
