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 Champion Devin Haney had recently been under fire for some racist comments, he made when answering questions concerning his potential fight with unified lightweight champion Vasily Lomachenko on 78SPORTSTV.

The comments quickly went viral on social media and perceived by many Fans and Professionals as racist and with that, an all round backlash followed.

Haney wasn't the first to make such statements. Back in 2008, Bernard Hopkins made such statements in the build up to his fight with Joe Calzaghe but lost via unanimous decision, when they eventually meet in the ring.
One of the professionals to give his opinion on Haney's comments is his long time rival Ryan Garcia. He defended the Haney and claimed the comments weren't built behind a racist perspective.
"We should all respect everyone from every race and see who the best man is! I respect Devin Haney and I believe he didn't mean this with racist intent but let's all respect each other for the love of the sport," Garcia stated.
There was great tension build up from those comments and Haney was forced to quickly react, rejecting the accusations of him being racist.
"I'm not racist and I never will be a racist. I'm chasing greatness," Haney said.
"I just had a very positive conversation with Mauricio Sulaiman, president of the WBC, and confirmed to him directly my commitment to be a role model and my absolute rejection of discrimination of any kind,"
