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…

Joe Joyce is aiming to make a big statement against  former world title challenger Alexander Ustinov, who will be making his return on May 18 at the Lamex Stadium live on BT Sport.

The fight will be the Co-main event for the fight between Billy Joe Saunders Vs Shefat Isufi for the vacant WBO Interim world super middleweight title and will be his first fight, since making a promotional pact with Frank Warren.

Ustinov, 34-3 (25 KOs) is a huge step up for Joyce and a win for hih will actually move him up on the heavyweight rankings, as Ustinov has been ranked highly amongst the heavyweight contenders.

Ustinov was unbeaten in the first seven years of his career and only got beaten when he challenged for the European title and the vacant IBF world title against Kubrat Pulev in September 2012. He then won his next seven fights, winning the WBA International title before losing via unanimous decision while challenging  WBA regular world title against Manuel Charr in November 2017.

Joe Joyce has had a pretty good start to his professional career after a good amateur experience. Joyce is the Commonwealth,  WBA Continental champion and in his last outing won the WBA Gold title with a knockout against former world champion Bermane Stiverne in February.

He is presently the Mandatory challenger to the British, European and WBA regular world titles.
“I could have waited until the big fight night on July 13th, but I wanted to keep busy. I didn’t want a journeyman, so we chose a 6 foot 8 inch giant and former world heavyweight title challenger Alexander Ustinov who’s only lost 3 times. He is big, awkward and he can punch. My aim is to take him out in spectacular fashion and put on a great show for the fans at the Lamex stadium.
