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…

Undisputed middleweight champion Claressa Shields is taking a step towards cementing herself as the greatest female Boxer to ever grace the planet.

She intends to become a three division champion when she steps into the ring against former welterweight titlist Ivana Habazin for the vacant WBO junior middleweight titit on August 17 in Shields’ hometown of Flint, Mich.

Shields will stand a chance of beating Japan’s Tanaka and Vasily Lomachenko's record to become the quickest ever male or female to become a three division champion having previously held titles at super middleweight and still reigns as the middleweight

“Having the opportunity to become world champion in a third weight division faster than any man or woman in boxing history will make August 17 a night I will cherish forever,” notes Shields, the only American boxer in history to capture back-to-back Olympic Gold medals. “It’s another big step forward in lifting women’s boxing on the road to equality.”

Croatia’s Habazin (20-3, 7KOs) will be hoping to become a two division champion, previously holding a title at Welterweight. She lost her title to unbeaten pound-for-pound and Undisputed Welterweight Champion Cecilia Braekhus back in Sept. 2014.

“I’m honored to fight on SHOWTIME and to be making my debut in the U.S.,” said Habazin. “It’s a dream come true and this is a huge chance for me to prove that I am one of boxing’s elite fighters. I will not let this opportunity pass. I’m not just coming to the U.S. to fight, I’m coming for victory. 
“I’m actually a big fan of Claressa. She made history for women’s boxing and will be a great opponent for me. She’s very confident in herself, she’s aggressive, she can move, she has speed and good defense. But I have all of this too, and I can punch. I can’t wait to see what she is made of. They said her fight against Hammer was the biggest of all time, but I think this one will be the greatest ever.”
