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…

The fight didn't play out as many believed it will be with top prospect facing a huge underdog. Adam Kownacki landed as many heavy and hard punches as possible on the Veteran Arreola but couldn't knock him out but instead recieved the toughest fight of his career.

Arreola (38-6-1, 33 KOs, 2 NC) did than many expected, instead of a fight gave Kownacki a brawl, showed toughness and took him through twelve rounds for the first time in his professional career.

Arreola entered the ring for the third time since losing by an eight round knockout to WBC champion Deontay Wilder in 2016 and had a two year lay off before returning with a knockout win over Jean Pierre Augustin (17-1-1, 12 KOs), of Providence, Rhode Island in December.

The fight was contested on close quarters, a back and forth battle that drew respected from both fighters, both hugging it out before the start of the last round.

Kownacki had a huge turn up by polish fans at the Barclays Center and their creams was heard through out the 12 rounds and that served more as a motivation through it.

Kownacki was the most accurate of the two and with the most output but got tired in the championship rounds and that was complimented by Arreola, who seem to have injured his arms from the eight round and couldn't land ad much as he did early in the fight.
