Shakur Stevenson Breaks Down Felix Caraballo, Stops Him In Six ↑ Grab this Headline Animator
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…

Falcao, a 2012 Olympic Bronze medalist and rated No. 9 by the WBC is unbeaten as a Professional and has accumulated a 16 - 0 record and nine by way of knockout. He was slated to face Paul Mendez on  March 9 in New York but the bout got cancelled at the last minute due Mendez medical issues.

“I am extremely grateful to be fighting on this platform,” said Falcao, who became a father last month. “It was heartbreaking when the Mendez fight fell apart on such short notice because I was looking forward to welcoming my son Roberto into this world after I beat Mendez but everything happens for a reason.” 

“This fight is very personal to me. I’m planning to knock Chris out because he did not beat me the first time – the judges handed it to him! This is an even bigger opportunity than the Mendez fight because its two days before Canelo vs Danny Jacobs and now when I return home, baby Roberto will be waiting for me. This is my time to shine and show the world I’m a problem in the middleweight division!”

The twice beaten Pearson, has also appeared in the same amount of fights like his opponent. Howbiet, with a much higher KO record. He has been on big fight cards, notably appearing on the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao PPV where he defeated Said El Harrak.

Despite his recent loss to Justin DeLoach, he has bounced back with two knockout wins and will be looking to add Falcao to the count.
