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…

Alexander Volkanovski made no mistake on his promise, dethroned long reigning featherweight champion Max Holloway via unanimous decision to become the new featherweight king at the T-Mobil Arena on Saturday night. Volkanovski handed Holloway his first loss at featherweight, since losing to Conor McGregor seven years ago. The Australian gradually broke down the champ with leg kicks all through the five rounds earning a 48-47, 48-47 and 50-45 on the scorecards.
“This is what we do. I’ve got the good fight IQ and I got the job done. I’m going to stay champion for a long time,” Volkanovski said afterwards. 
“He’s a great champion, nothing but respect. He’s one of the GOAT’s. I’ve took out two of the GOAT’s back to back. I’m going to be a great champion.”

Volkanovski for most of the fight, continously targeted the Champions legs and even when the stance was changed to Southpaw, he just changed the direction of attack. However, Holloway only started connecting some combination shots in the towards the end of the second round.

Holloway is known for working down his opponents with chubbing shots but this wasn't effective as Volkanovski had already finished his foundations and hampered his movement. To add to it, fighting out of a southpaw stance wasn't ideal for the champ but was the only way as his legs were incredibly damaged.

By the final round, Volkanovski had already won the fight, outstriking the champ in all the rounds. Landing a total of sixty-five kicks and that added to his overall numbers.
