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…

Gervonta Davis got himself a successful Lightweight debut and a WBA "regular" Lightweight title at defeating former unified Champion Yuriorkis Gamboa, dropping him three times before stopping him in the last round of their scheduled 12 round battle at the State Farm Arena on Saturday 28th December. 

The Cuban Olympic gold medalist was dropped ones in the second, Eighth and the final round of the fight and Jack Reiss the referee, ended the fight at exactly 1:17 of the final round after watching the 38th year old Gamboa go down the third. 

With the win Davis retained his Undefeated record and improved to 23-0, 22 KOs and claimed the secondary title to that held by his primary target WBA "Super" Lightweight champ Vasily Lomachenko, who is considered the sanctioning body's legitimate champion. 

However, Gervonta Davis becomes a world champion in his secind weight class. Though this could be argued by some, who believe the "regular" title should be considered a world title.

Davis was twice a champion at 130, lost his IBF Super featherweight title to the scales in a fight that eventually saw Davis defeat Francisco Fonseca via eight round knock out  then knocked out Jesus Cellar in the third round to claim the vacant WBA "super" featherweight title back in April 2018. 

Yuriorkis Gamboa saw his four fight winning streak snapped by the loss, which was the third of his professional career, having lost his last two to big profile names. First to Terence Crawford with a ninth round knockout in 2014 then by a seventh round KO to Robinson Castellanos in 2017.

Three division champion Gamboa remains the only high profile name on Davis record and has been largely underrated because of his inconsistency and Chin.
