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…

WBC Gary Russell Jr was every thing better than his mandatory challenger Tugstsogt Nyambayar,when you talk of skill ,speed and boxing IQ and with that convincingly defeated him via a 12 round unanimous decision to retain his 126 pound title in the headlining bout of a ShowTime three Bout event at the PPL centre on Saturday night.

Each of the Judges (David Bilocerkowec (118-110), Glenn Feldman (116-112) and John McKaie (117-111)) all scored the fight for Russell, who practically landed more punches and made Nyambayar miss with ease.

The 31 year old Russell (31-1,18KOs), who's lone loss came via the hands of unified lightweight titlist Vasily Lomachenko, handed Nyambayar(11-1, 9KOs) the first loss of his professional career

“We put the work in every day in the gym,” Russell said. “I’m a perfectionist. We knew we had a very tough opponent and I knew he was gonna bring his physical best. He had everything to gain and nothing to lose. We just focused and showed I’m one of the longest-reigning champions for a reason.
“The difference was ring generalship, hand speed and boxing IQ. He only had 11 pro fights. Of course, he was an Olympic silver medalist, but he only had those 11 pro fights. I’ve had over 30 and I think my experience was enough to overcome and win this fight.”
