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…

Hooker - Ramirez Recap

Jose Ramirez (25-0, 17 KOs) knocked out Maurice Hooker in the sixth round of an action filled back and forth close fight that saw him unify the WBC and the WBO Junior welterweight titles in front of a near-sellout crowd at the College Park Center.

A knockdown was scored by Ramirez in the first round of the fight, but after replays it was observed that Ramirez mistakenly stepped on Hooker while landing his Jab and that hindered Hooker's movement and caused the slip.

Both fighters had their moments in the back and forth fight with Hooker making use of his reach to score hooks to the head. He even had successes in the six round before the stoppage.

Ramirez tagged Hooker (26-1-3, 17 KOs) with a left to the chin, he landed another left and followed it with several other punches, before referee Mark Nelson stepped in to stop the fight.
