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…

Ray Beltran failed to make weight for his title, tipping the scales at 136½ and with that wasn't eligible Fight Richard Commey for the title but this seemed a sign of the worst to come his way on Friday night.

The Ghanaian Richard Commey improved to (29-2) with 26 Knockouts while the 20 year PRO veteran Beltran (36-9-1, 22 KOs, 1 NC) lost for the third time in his professional career. Howbiet, that was the first since September 2008

Commey still gave credit to the former world champion after the win, capping it all up with some dancing.

“Beltran showed why he was a champion,” Commey said of the former WBO lightweight champ. “He’s a great fighter, who showed it against me tonight. I was happy to get the job done.”

“He caught me with a good shot in the [eighth] round, and the referee decided to stop the fight,” Beltran said. “Now I’m gonna get together with my team and figure out what’s next. If I fight on, I will move up to 140 pounds.”
