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).

Both former UFC fighters made their BKFC debut in the Main event of the Card and apart from Lobov coming out with the win, it also made way for a potential grudge fight between former two - division boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi. A development the BKFC is working on for an event in June. 

Paulie Malignaggi slapped Artem Lobov in a media event in New York and his arrival to BKFC triggered the new arrangement, coupled with the fact that Malignaggi has had issues with Lobov's close friend Conor McGregor and this will be some kind of Consolation, since he hasn't been able to reach a fight with the Irish UFC Star.
