Shakur Stevenson Breaks Down Felix Caraballo, Stops Him In Six ↑ Grab this Headline Animator
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…

 Jamie Munguia Vs Patrick Allotey Angers Dennis Hogan's Team

Jamie Munguia and Dennis Hogan

Dennis Hogan's promoter Paul Keegan has expressed his displeasure in WBO Junior Middleweight World champion Jamie Munguia (33-0, 26 KOs)  defending his title against Patrick Allotey (40-3, 30 KOs) instead of a rematch with his client, after their first fight ended a majority decision. 

Jamie Munguia survived an early scare and struggled to earn a majority decision against Dennis Hogan in a mandatory defense on Mexican soil. Many even viewed Hogan as the winner.

Reports flew out, there was going to be a rematch  at least to make things straight but the negotiating phase never really kicked off.

Paul Keegan believes that a defense against Patrick Allotey isn't the best and a real backward step for the Champion, especially after so much talk of a rematch. 

“I think the fight he has picked or his team picked is a huge step backwards. You can understand that they want a fairly straight forward fight after Dennis beating him in his hometown,” Keegan told Irish-boxing.com . 
“Up until a few weeks we thought they might follow through on their word and do the rematch. He said he wanted it , his promoter said he will do it , his co promoter wanted it and we wanted it but in the end he didn’t follow through with his promise but that’s life.
“My respect for him and his team right now is zero , they just want us to go away and not talk about the fight ever again which I won’t do,”
He adds before calling for Munguia and co to main up whilst pushing the proud Mexican button.
 "They should be honest with the Mexican boxing fans and say ‘listen we got a gifted decision last time out’ instead of talking like he is the second coming of Canelo.
Jamie Munguia will fight Patrick Allotey at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif. on the Mexican Independence Day September 14.
