Boxing returns as Shakur Stevenson KOs Felix Caraballo

Boxing returned to Las Vegas, USA last night as undefeated WBO featherweight world champion, Shakur Stevenson put on a show in his super featherweight debut knocking out Puerto Rican contender Felix “La Sombra” Caraballo in the sixth round of a scheduled 10-rounder inside an empty MGM Grand Conference Center.

The 22-year-old southpaw dominated 33-year-old Caraballo from start to finish, scoring knockdowns via body shot in the first round and a second in Round 6 via left uppercut downstairs which forced referee Tony Weeks to wave the fight off at 1:31 without a count.

Also speaking was Top Rank chairman Bob Arum who stated “What a magnificent performance by Shakur Stevenson. He keeps on getting better, and rest assured, he is a future pound-for-pound superstar.”

Stevenson was originally scheduled to defend his WBO featherweight title against Miguel Marriagua at New York’s Madison Square Garden back in March, but the fight was called off one day prior just as the COVID-19 quarantine took shape.
