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 super middleweight fight between John Ryder and Bilal Akkawy started out own and attracted boos from the spectators but in no time featured fireworks in Canelo-Jacobs undercard.

Ryder was initially scheduled to fight David Lemieux in the co-main event but was brought down the Card, after Lemieux pulled out last month due to a hand injury.

After a dull first round, Ryder landed connected heavy right hands in the third and scored two knockdowns and was close to scoring a third when the referee intervened to end the fight.
With the victory, Ryder won the vacant interim WBA “super” middleweight title, falling in line for a future clash with true WBA Champ Callum Smith.

The boos were heard because the fighters had refused to engage in any exchange in the first round but the fight picked momentum in the second round, when Ryder attacked using speed, while Akkawy replied with some combinations of his own.

The fight then ended early, as Ryder rocked and dropped Akkawy for the secknd time in the third round, and after few seconds on some onesided beating, the referee jumped in to stop the fight.
