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…

Jordan Gill Defeats Ryan Doyle

The WBA International Featherweight Champion Jordan Gill will be defending his title against Enrique Tinoco, while Commonwealth featherweight champion Leigh Wood will defend his title against Ryan Doyle in the upcoming JD NXTGEN series at Motorpoint Arena Nottingham on May 10, live on Sky Sports in the UK and DAZN in the US.

Gill earned a spot in the WBA  top 15, when he dominated and stopped Mexico’s Emmanuel Dominguez in the third round to win the WBA International Featherweight Title. He will be making the first defense against another tough Mexican in Tinoco (17-5-4, 12 KOs). 

Leigh Wood Knocked out Abraham Osei Bonsu in the second round to win the Commonwealth title last month at the East of England Arena in Peterborough and wants to immediately defend the title against former champion Doyle (17-3-1, 9 KOs).

    Doyle on the other hand, will be hoping to to reclaim the title he lost to Jordan Gill at the Copper Box Arena, last year October.

    “Getting out again so soon after my win in Peterborough is great for building the momentum,” said Gill. “I want to stay fresh in everyone’s minds and to keep on building and learning is important. To keep on winning and improving is the main aim and I can't wait to get out again on May 10." 
    “I don’t know too much about my opponent. I know he’s tough and very seasoned, he went the distance with Devin Haney who’s an unbeaten and well-ranked Lightweight. He’s considered one of the best up-and-coming Lightweight prospects in world boxing and if he couldn’t put Tinoco away then I know I’m in for a hard night."

    Leigh Wood 
    “It feels surreal to be topping such a big show in my home city with Jordan,” said Wood. “I’ve been banging on for a while now about bringing big time boxing back to Nottingham. It’s been seven years since Carl Froch last boxed here so it’s been a long time coming. Being the main flagbearer for boxing in my city is a big honour. 
    “Although I was happy to win the Commonwealth title it was a fairly easy win for me. I think I need to beat a champion or a former champion to feel worthy of winning the title and I want to be tested as well. It’s going to be a hard fight with Ryan Doyle, he’ll test me and I’m looking forward to it. 
    “When Froch retired a lot of fight fans had nobody to follow and they’ve been craving someone to support and get behind for a while now. People from Nottingham always get behind one of their own and I’m expecting a huge turnout on May 10 with a lot of noise.”
