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.

With the win, the 2016 silver medallist Stevenson retained his unbeaten record and improved to (14-0, 8KOs).

Vasily Lomachenko and Luke Campbell Faceoff

Devin Haney is hoping to land a title shot soon in his career but right now his thoughts about the upcoming unification fight between Vasiliy Lomachenko and Luke Campbell is all that matters at lightweight. 

Haney gave his prediction for the fight which will have the WBA, WBO and WBC lightweight World titles at stake at the O2 Arena on August 31st. 

Haney predicts a tough fight and  believes Lomachenko can never be victorious against a fighter like Luke Campbell, due to the physical advantages coupled with a his ring IQ. 
“I think that is a good fight,” Haney said. “Luke Campbell, he’s tall, he’s long, he can box and he has experience. But Lomachenko is obviously Lomachenko, and everyone has him the favorite to win. I don’t think it’s gonna be as easy as everyone thinks, but I do see Lomachenko being victorious.”

The No. 2 ranked Devin Haney (22-0, 14 KOs) will fight  Russia’s Zaur Abdullaev (11-0, 7 KOs) in a WBC Title Eliminator, which puts the winner next in line for WBC title
