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.

With the win, the 2016 silver medallist Stevenson retained his unbeaten record and improved to (14-0, 8KOs).

Brandon Figueroa stopped Yonfrez Parejo to win the WBA interim junior  Featherweight title On Saturday night in  Danny Garcia-Adrian Granados undercard at Dignity Health Sports Park.

The fight started out a much more competitive back and forth battle, which lasted for the first five rounds. Figueroa constantly attacked the Veteran Venezuelan with body shots and this began giving its dividends after the fifth round.

Parejo started retreating and Figueroa sensing blood, chased his opponent around the ring and stopped him from escaping, handing him the punishment there on the ropes.

This continued in the remaining rounds and by the eight round, Parejo's corner had seen enough of the one sided beating and had to stop the fight, handing Figueroa the win.

"This was definitely one of my stronger training camps,” Figueroa said. “We did a lot of work on my legs and strengthening them. It puts a little more pop in my punches. The conditioning was important too because I know this guy isn't going to go down easy."
