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…

The opening round was dominated by Gastelum, who was more aggressive and took to the center of the ring for exchanges  with numerous take down attempts. Adesanya fought from range and picked his shots accurately, carefully and using movements to avoid Gastelum aggressive blows.

Adesanya was more aggressive in the second, landed a few kicks and also took a few heavy shots from Gastelum, who still looked aggressive coming forward but that left him open to counter attacks from Adesanya, who with one of his counters knocked his opponent off balance early in the round.

Gastelum went for take downs but failed in each time, especially after being wobbled and his head snapped back an upper cut.
