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…

Anjos got some progress in the second round, landing some good strikes with a deafening speed but Edwards was more calm and connected more elbows, especially immediately after referee intervention. Anjos kicked Edwards off balance towards the end of the second round and landed some elbows before Edwards regained his composure.

Edwards was the better fighter in Round three  controlling the distance and clinched whenever dos Anjos was making significant progress and capitalized immediately after separation. He did the same in round four and also attempted a flying knee and scored a spectacular take down.

By round five, it was clear dos Anjos wasn't going to win on the scorecards, so he tried hard to get the only other way to win and failed, as Edwards made use of his smart defense to control the fight.
