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…

Boxing's pound 4 pound star Canelo Alvarez has vacated his light heavyweight world title he won just six weeks ago, with a knock out victory over former champion Sergey Kovalev

The information was released by Golden Boy Promotions on Tuesday through a press release. Canelo knocked out Kovalev in the eleventh round of their scheduled 12 round bout on November 2nd at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Canelo Alvarez went up two weight classes to face Sergey Kolalev and the fight was very competitive before Canelo landed a huge right hand that knocked Kovalev unconscious in the eleventh round. 
“I know that my accomplishments in the ring have brought pride to my fans and my country,” Alvarez said. “I have long enjoyed my relationship with the WBO and appreciate all they do to preserve and enhance the sport of boxing. This agreement allows the WBO to have its light heavyweight title contested regularly and allows me to pursue bouts against the best opponents, regardless of weight class.”

Having vacated the light heavyweight title, the light heavyweight division will definitely be kicked back to life and contenders and champions will shift their focus to the vacant belt, with Sergey Kolalev still supposed to be in the picture. 

However, the 29 year old will be dropping down either to Super Middleweight, where Champions David Benavidez (WBC), Billy Joe Saunders (WBO) and Callum Smith (WBA) have all expressed interest in a possible fight or back to middleweight where a trilogy against Gennady "GGG" Golovkin looms in the horizon while WBC Champ Jermall Charlo and Demetrius Andrade, the WBO champ, could be good draws. 

The Four division champion has won titles at junior middleweight, middleweight Super Middleweight. However at 168, the critics argue that Canelo only won a secondary title
