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…

Francis Ngannou lived up to his reputation, by knocking out the former World champion Junior dos Santos in 71 seconds, his third straight first round stoppage.

The fight ended almost immediately, as it started. Both fighters opened the round with kicks and that continued till dos Santos came into Ngannou's boxing reach which spelled the end.
“Junior moves a lot so the goal was to slow him down, make him not move a lot and then strike,” Ngannou said after the win. “Of course it gives me some confidence but before that, I was already confident. Because Junior is a striker, he is a boxer and I believe I’m the best boxer in this division.”

Junior dos Santos made clear, he was willing to trade with Ngannou and at one point, it sounded like a good idea but when Ngannou started unleashing his heavy punches the fight ended.

Ngannou landed a a big right hand that sent Santos down to the canvas and followed him down unloading huge blows on the defenseless Santos till the referee had no choice but to jump in to stop the bout.


Ngannou is hoping the UFC will land him a title shot against the Winner of Cormier - Miocic, which will take place in August.

“I hope the UFC gonna realize I deserve the title shot now. I deserve the winner of D.C. [ Daniel Cormier ] and Stipe [Miocic] ,” Ngannou said after his win.
“I think the only thing left is the winner of Stipe and D.C. I want the title shot back. I need some respect. Now I deserve it.”
