Josecarlos Van Rankin: El equipo está con la mente positiva en cerrar bien el torneo

 

“Sabemos que estamos en una situación difícil, tenemos dos partidos que debemos ganar, uno de visita y otro en casa. El equipo está con la mente positiva, y con muchas ganas de cerrar bien el torneo”, afirmó este jueves el canterano de los Pumas Josecarlos Van Rankin, luego del entrenamiento en el Estadio Olímpico Universitario.

El jugador felino dejó claro que el equipo sabe qué es lo que deben mejorar para conseguir el objetivo este próximo sábado cuando enfrenten a Morelia. “Nosotros trabajamos para eso, el mal momento no ha sido por falta de trabajo. El equipo debe estar más junto, es la única manera de mejorar. Hablamos que debemos tener un orden más defensivo”, explicó.

A pesar de que jugarán de visita y habrá más afición de Monarcas, Van Rankin dijo que de cualquier manera se sentirán arropados por el cariño de su gente, así que salir airosos del Morelos es imperativo. “Pumas (la afición) siempre está presente en todos lados, toda la porra nos acompaña donde sea”, y aclaró que es complicado darle un mensaje a todos ellos por el momento que atraviesa el equipo, pero fue claro en asegurar que “lo único que les podemos decir es que saldremos a ganar ambos juegos”, sentenció.

Rayados no se permite relajarse

Antonio Mohamed quiere la máxima intensidad del Monterrey

A pesar de contar con el boleto a la Liguilla del Clausura 2017 de la Liga BBVA Bancomer, en el Monterrey no está permitido bajar el ritmo o caer en exceso de confianza teniendo en la mira un nuevo Campeonato.

Para Rayados es de suma importancia sumar un triunfo ante el Veracruz para mantenerse en los primeros puestos de la Tabla General, premisa que Antonio Mohamed ha inculcado en sus Jugadores.

“No nos tenemos permitido relajarnos, hablé con los futbolistas y lo tienen muy claro. Tenemos que jugar porque representamos al Monterrey. Dignificamos la profesión y vamos a buscar ganar el partido. No podemos bajar la intensidad”, dijo el Director Técnico en conferencia de prensa en el Centro de Entrenamiento BBVA Bancomer El Barrial.

“El Equipo llega bien y el objetivo es ganar para terminar lo más arriba posible. Sabemos que estamos clasificados, pero vamos a buscar terminar en los primeros lugares”, expresó.

La competencia interna y la exigencia de la Institución es ir en busca del título para retribuir la confianza de la Mejor Afición, apelando Mohamed al talento de su Plantel.

“Hay que seguir insistiendo en buscar ‘la gloria’. Hay que seguir buscando el título. La gente quiere una vuelta olímpica y nosotros también”, finalizó.

SLEW OF RED-HOT GOLDEN BOY PROMOTIONS PROSPECTS TO APPEAR ON CANELO-CHAVEZ, JR. NON-TELEVISED UNDERCARD

Apr 27, 2017
SLEW OF RED-HOT GOLDEN BOY PROMOTIONS PROSPECTS TO APPEAR ON CANELO-CHAVEZ, JR. NON-TELEVISED UNDERCARD
 
HIGHLY TOUTED AMATEUR RYAN GARCIA, 2012 OLYMPIC BRONZE MEDALIST MARLEN ESPARZA AND 2016 MEXICAN OLYMPIAN RAUL CURIEL TO FIGHT IN SEPARATE BOUTS ON PRELIMINARY UNDERCARD
 
LOS ANGELES (April 27, 2017) – In the lead up to the stacked Cinco de Mayo weekend historic boxing event headlined by Canelo Alvarez (48-1-1, 34 KOs) and Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. (50-2-1, 32 KOs), fans will have a chance to witness some of Golden Boy Promotions’ top future stars including two Olympians and numerous undefeated fighters.
Canelo vs. Chavez, Jr. takes place Saturday, May 6 at T-Mobile Arena and will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View® beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.
“With Canelo vs. Chavez, Jr. being a historic event in boxing, we wanted to give the audience guaranteed action with every bout from top to bottom and I believe we will get that in the ring on May 6 with these match ups,” said Golden Boy Promotions Chairman and CEO Oscar De La Hoya.
A 15-time national amateur champion Ryan “Kingry” Garcia (8-0, 7 KOs) will appear in the bout prior to the start of the HBO Pay-Per-View telecast in a six-round lightweight fight against Long Beach, New Jersey’s Tyrone Luckey (8-6-3, 6 KOs). The Victorville, California native is riding a four-fight KO streak dating back to August and will look to keep his undefeated record intact in front of a huge audience.
Making history as the first female in boxing to fight three-minute rounds as a professional, former US 2012 Olympic Bronze Medalist Marlen Esparza (1-0) of Houston, TX will face Samantha Salazar (2-3-1) of Dallas, TX for a four round flyweight bout in a Texan turf war battle. Esparza made her professional debut on the March 23 inaugural Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN card where she defeated Rachel Sazoff by way of unanimous decision.
Opening up the free view portion of the Pay- Per- View, former Mexican Olympian Raul “El Cugar” Curiel will make his professional debut against a soon to-be-announced opponent for a super welterweight war scheduled to go four rounds. The Tamaulipas, Mexico-based fighter will look to build on an outstanding amateur career that included a gold medal at the 2012 world youth championships and winning the 2015 World Series of Boxing.
Looking to continue his run towards a world championship title shot, the slick Santa Ana, California-based Ronny Rios (27-1, 12 KOs) will face off with heavy-handed Daniel “El Chato” Noriega (28-10-1, 15 KOs) in a 10-round super bantamweight battle. All signs point to an anticipated showdown in the ring as Rios has won four of his last consecutive bouts and Noriega has been victorious in five of his last six fights.
Opening up the action with the first fight on the May 6 card, undefeated lightweight Joseph “Diamante” Aguirre (16-0, 9 KOs) from Cancun will face fellow Mexican countryman Angel “Sinaloa” Aispuro (8-4-2, 5 KOs) in a six-round bout. Aguirre will fight for the first time this year after winning by unanimous decision over Erick Rosales last December in Mexico.
 
Canelo vs. Chavez, Jr. is a 12-round fight presented by Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by Tecate, BORN BOLD, O’Reilly Auto Parts, Adriana’s Insurance and Interjet. Lemieux vs. Reyes is presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Eye of the Tiger Management. Matthysse vs. Taylor is a 10-round fight presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Arano Boxing and Star Boxing. Diaz, Jr. vs. Avila is presented by Golden Boy Promotions. The event will take place Saturday, May 6 at T-Mobile Arena and will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View® beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.

Match officials appointed for FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017

Match officials appointed for FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017

With only two months to go before the FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017 kicks off at the Saint Petersburg Stadium on 17 June, FIFA has appointed 36 match officials, representing all six confederations. They have been selected by the FIFA Referees Committee from the list of candidates for the 2018 FIFA World Cup™.

In their preparations, all of the candidates have been under the guidance and supervision of the chairman of the FIFA Referees Committee, Pierluigi Collina, and the FIFA Head of Refereeing, Massimo Busacca. For Collina and Busacca, it is essential to ensure that the best match officials from all around the world are selected for FIFA competitions. “These officials are all potential candidates for next year’s flagship football event in Russia, and a high-profile tournament like the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 is key to their preparation. We are convinced that they will deliver the quality we strive for,” says Collina.

Another important piece of history will be made at the Confederations Cup with video assistant referee (VAR) tests. The VARs will be used to support referees with “match-changing” decisions. The trial will involve VARs being given access to all broadcast feeds inside a video operations room, enabling them to provide information to the referee on the field of play in order to correct any clear mistakes in “match-changing” situations. These include serious incidents such as goals, penalty decisions, direct red cards and cases of mistaken identity. The VARs will play a supporting role along with the assistant referees and the fourth official, but the referee will continue to take the first as well as the final decision on the field of play. The referees will also be able to call upon goal-line technology (GLT).

In addition, LIAM MCCLURE, a Methacton High School football player diagnosed with autism, will walk the Red Carpet on Thursday and hand out New Era Caps to Draft picks with his teammates.

LOS ANGELES (April 25, 2017) – Fighters featured on the undercards of the highly anticipated Canelo vs. Chavez, Jr. showdown today hosted a Los Angeles media workout at City of Angels Boxing ahead of their upcoming fights on May 6 at T-Mobile Arena, live on HBO Pay-Per-View. Plus, fighters featured on Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN on May 5 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena joined the action today also to discuss their upcoming bouts.
On the Canelo vs. Chavez, Jr. undercard, Lucas “La Maquina” Matthysse (37-4, 34 KOs) will take on Emmanuel “Tranzformer” Taylor (20-4, 14 KOs) and Joseph “JoJo” Diaz, Jr. (23-0, 13 KOs) will be defending his NABF title against Manuel “Tino” Avila (22-0, 8 KOs) on HBO Pay-Per-View® beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.

Also on the card, Ronny Rios (27-1, 12 KOs) will fight Daniel “El Chato” Noriega (28-10-1, 15 KOs) and opening up the night, Joseph “Diamante” Aguirre (16-0, 9 KOs) will be battling Angel Aispuro (8-4-2, 5 KOs).
The May 5 action-packed night of Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN will be headlined by former three-division world champion Yuriorkis Gamboa and Robinson Castellanos. Co-main event of the night, Abraham “Chamaco” Lopez (22-0-1, 15 KOs) will defend his NABA featherweight title against Jesus Rojas (24-1-2, 17 KOs). Oscar “El Jaguar” Negrete (15-0, 6 KOs) will be participating in the card in a 10-round bantamweight bout, and knock out artist Vergil Ortiz, Jr. (4-0, 4 KOs) will be in a four round super lightweight fight against Angel “Pescado” Sarinana (7-5-2, 3 KOs).
Below is what the fighters had to say at today’s workout alongside Golden Boy Promotions Chairman and CEO Oscar De La Hoya:
OSCAR DE LA HOYA, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions:
“I’m excited to see every undercard fighter on fight night. I love knockouts, so you can’t go wrong with our co-main event of David Lemieux against Marco Reyes. Lemieux just had a spectacular knockout over Curtis Stevens that was incredible, so I’m looking forward to seeing him in the ring again.
“This is going to be a great show, and I think everyone is going to be very excited. Golden Boy has a great reputation for putting on amazing fights, and the fans will definitely be getting their money’s worth.”
LUCAS “LA MAQUINA” MATTHYSSE, Former WBC Silver Super Lightweight Champion:
“I never once thought about retiring. I just needed a deep rest after the Postol fight in October, so I went back home and took the time I needed to be with family–I drove my motorcycle, went fishing, and just reflected.
“I am proud of the career that I have made – I am a South American fighter coming from a province in Argentina who has made himself known in America. It is a privilege to be back on such a card like this, and my goal is to continue to be in the sport, on track for a championship. I am ready to jump back in.”
JOSEPH “JOJO” DIAZ, JR., NABF Featherweight Champion:
“Fighting on this Canelo vs. Chavez, Jr. card has been the opportunity of the lifetime for me. I have to go out there with millions watching and thousands in attendance, so I have to showcase to everybody that I can be the best and the next superstar in boxing.
“I trained very hard for this fight, so a win over Manuel Avila will put me a step closer or maybe even give me that title shot for either the WBC or WBO belt. I know my opponent is an undefeated Golden Boy prospect, so there is a lot at stake for whomever wins this fight, as they will become ‘the next big thing’ at 126 pounds for Golden Boy Promotions. May the best man win on May 6th.”
RYAN “KINGRY” GARCIA, Lightweight Prospect:
“I’m different from everybody, my speed is incredible. If you get the chance, check me out because I bring something different to the table. People may watch a lot of fighters, but nobody sees someone with my explosiveness and speed.”
RAUL “EL CIGAR” CURIEL, Former Mexican Olympian:
“Everyone will say the same thing–that they just want to get their first professional fight out of the way. I am excited to be a part of the Golden Boy family, and being on HBO–it’s a dream. I’ve been training with Manny Robles and I feel ready to take on my opponent.”
RONNY RIOS, Super Bantamweight Contender:
“Everything has been great–I just had my son, which is extra motivation for me. I’m at 122 pounds now, because after my loss, my motivation and discipline went way up.
“In working up to this fight, I’ve been training and eating healthier than ever. I believe I will be well prepared to take on my opponent on May 6 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.”
JOSEPH “DIAMANTE” AGUIRRE, Lightweight Prospect:
“I’ve been training over a year with Joel Diaz, and have been sparring with Lucas Matthysse and Vergil Ortiz, Jr. to prepare for our fights on May 6th. I have about 200 people coming from Mexico to see me fight, so I’m really excited.
“My fighting style with Joel Diaz has adjusted as he has taught me to be more aggressive and to have a winning mentality in the ring.”
ABRAHAM “CHAMACO” LOPEZ, NABA Featherweight Champion:
“I get to defend my NABA title for the second time. I’m thankful to God for the opportunity, and at the end of the day, he already knows what’s going to happen that night, I just have to do what I always do and prepare and train harder than I have.”
OSCAR “EL JAGUAR” NEGRETE, Bantamweight Contender:
“It’s a great privilege to be on ESPN, I know that it’s going to be a great fight. I get the chance to represent Colombia and show what I have to offer in the ring. I’ve developed a lot as a fighter, and I just can’t wait for next week.”
VERGIL ORTIZ, JR., Super Lightweight Prospect:
“I’ve been feeling really good lately and have been training since February so I’m in the best shape of my life right now. It feels really to be on such a huge fight card. When I fought on the last Canelo undercard, it was huge for me-it still takes some adjusting, but I feel great.
“My last four fights have all been knockouts, but I’m not going just for the knockout, I’m going in to be smart. I expect my opponent to go forward and bully me, but it’s not always about strength-I know I will figure him out.”
Canelo vs. Chavez, Jr. is a 12-round fight presented by Golden BoyPromotions and sponsored by Tecate, BORN BOLD, O’Reilly Auto Parts, Adriana’s Insurance and Interjet.  Lemieux vs. Reyes is presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Eye of the Tiger Management, Matthysse vs. Taylor is a 10-round fight presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Arano Boxing and Star Boxing.
