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…

Eddie Hearn has shown concern for Dillian Whyte as he prepares for a top showdown against top contender and former WBA Heavyweight Champion Alexander Povetkin.

The two heavyweight contenders have been out of the ring since fighting on Anthony Joshua Vs Andy Ruis Jr rematch fight card back in December. Povetkin fought to a points draw against Micheal Hunter, while Whyte went home with a close decision against ring Veteran Mariusz Wach.

The two will collide in the 22nd of August at the MatchRoom Headquarters in Brentwood as part of Eddie Hearn's Fight Camp Series.

Dillian Whyte has been the WBC mandatory since 2018 and will be due for a title shot against the Reigning Champion Tyson Fury by early February.

The present situation of the world leaves Boxing fights without an audience and with the possibility of losing his Mandatory spot, Hearn sees the Povetkin fight as a very big risk for Whyte.
"He's taking a huge risk. What people don't realise is that this environment is different. You'll get fighters over-performing and under-performing. The slogan is 'no easy fights'. The days of easy fights should be gone. Let's see these 50-50 match-ups. Whyte has been sat at No 1 with the WBC for 1000 days now - it is laughable now, comical. But we have our date at the end of February and we will be enforcing that," Hearn told Sky Sports. 
"Povetkin is someone who is extremely well-seasoned, an Olympic gold medalist, he had great fights with Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko, and good wins against David Price and Hughie Fury. He can really fight. The advert says it all - this is the two best left-hookers in the sport. It is such a dangerous fight.".
Tyson Fury will be defending the WBC heavyweight title in a trilogy fight against former champ Deontay Wilder on the 19th of December before Whyte will have his shot.
