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…

Lopez is rated No. 3 by the IBF while Nakatani is rated No. 4 and the top two spots are actually vacant. This makes it more appropriate for the two to collide in order to fill the top two spots.

A win here for Lopez will leave him in the mandatory position to fight IBF lightweight champion Richard Commey, which will in turn open the doors for a unification with WBA/WBO champion Vasiliy Lomachenko in a pay-per-view bout by the first quarter of 2020.

Lopez have been campaigning for a fight with Lomachenko but the Ukrainian feels, Lopez should get a belt to put things evenly at stake.
