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…

Venezuela charged forward for most of the fight while Carroll fought on the back foot. His lack of power was evident, as all his punches never seemed to affect Venezuela. However Carroll had speed and for his lack of power made up with flurries.


After the first three rounds which was Carroll's, Venezuela peppeered Carroll with left hooks and even had him hanging on the ropes, as both fighters slugged it out in the middle of the ring. The Mexican continued his show in the fifth round, making it look very easy to land the hook.

Venezuela had been in control for a while but while charging forward, invited body attacks from Carroll and that gradually weighed him down, by the eight round, he became slow and Carroll picked up the momentum that helped save him on the scorecard.

The Ninth and Tenth were more of the same as Venezuela never recovered from his slumber, while Jono Carroll kept landing at without some really issues till the fight was over.
