Top Rank boxing is officially back!
Bob Arum is leading the charge, as the promotion is one of the first major boxing entities to return to action. On Tuesday, June 9, Top Rank will feature an event from inside the MGM Grand Conference Center. Before the fighters compete, they must go through the weigh-ins.
The main event will feature Shakur Stevenson v. Felix Caraballo. The WBO Featherweight Champion in Stevenson (13-0) was supposed to face Miguel Marriaga on March 14 inside Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater. As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the fight was postponed. An Olympic medalist, Stevenson’s original opponent for the June fight, Rafael Rivera, had to back out as a result of visa issues.
Caraballo (13-1-2) is on a five-fight win streak and has nine wins via knockout. He had to hit the scale twice for this non-title matchup but was able to eventually make weight.
Check out the video above for the live interactions during weigh-ins. Here is the full card and weigh-in results for Stevenson v. Caraballo:
