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…

    Berchelt (35-1, 31 KOs) is riding on a 14 fight winning streak. A record he has accumulated since his first round controversial knock out loss and since then, became interim champion before meeting Vargas. Both made the fight a back and forth affair till Berchelt eventually wore him down to a TKO in the eleventh round. He was busy through out 2018, fighting thrice with his most recent being the 9th round stoppage win over Miguel Roman. 

    Vargas (25-1-2, 18 KOs), has been a good fighter that always brings to the ring a fight of the year contender, year in year out. He has won that accolade twice in 2015 and 2016, when he with a very badly bruised eye, fought back to knock out Takashi Miura in the ninth round. And the next year, he fought with Orlando “Siri” Salido in a seesaw battle that ended in a draw and most recently stopped Rod Salka in six rounds to open ways for this Rematch.
