Rayados cae en cierre del Clausura 2017

El Monterrey es derrotado por Morelia

 

El cierre del Monterrey dentro del Clausura 2017 de la Liga BBVA Bancomer no fue el esperado al cerrar con derrota por 1-2 ante el Morelia en el último compromiso de la fase regular.

 

Rayados batalló para mostrarse con claridad en el arco rival y a pesar del tanto de Dorlan Pabon por la vía del penal, un gol en el último minuto decretó el resultado final ante los 44 mil 341 espectadores reunidos en el Estadio BBVA Bancomer.

 

Como era de esperarse, el trámite del partido fue muy disputado y sufrido, siendo Gastón Lezcano quien puso al frente a los michoacanos tras una descolgada por derecha empujando solamente el esférico al minuto 31′.

 

Con el marcador en contra, los dirigidos por Antonio Mohamed manejaron las emociones del compromiso aunque no se mostraron espacios suficientes hasta que al 83′ Rogelio Funes fue derribado dentro del área el cual fue marcado por Pabon al 85′, dando esperanzas a los del Cerro de La Silla.

 

Obligados por la situación apremiante que vivían, Monarcas se fue al frente y en tiempo de compensación Raúl Ruidíaz empujó el esférico decretando la pizarra final.

 

El rival para el Monterrey en Cuartos de Final quedará definido el día de mañana cuando concluya formalmente en campeonato regular, ocupando hasta el momento el segundo lugar en la Tabla General.

LAS VEGAS (May 3, 2017) – Former two-division world champion Canelo Alvarez (48-1-1, 34 KOs) and Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. (50-2-1, 32 KOs) today hosted the final press conference ahead of their superfight showdown on Saturday, May 6 presented live on HBO Pay-Per-View® at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT. The live stream of the press conference can be viewed here.
Below is what the fighters and their teams had to sat at today’s final press conference:
 
CANELO ALVAREZ, Former Two-Division World Champion:
“On my behalf, I’m going to do everything on my side to make this one of the most historic fights in Mexico. We will be ready on Saturday.
“Every fight is very important to my career, and this fight is no exception. I’m very happy the fight is here on Saturday.”
JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ, JR., Former WBC Middleweight World Champion:
“I feel ready and happy that the fight is only a few days away. I came here to win, not just to fight. Everything has already been said; we’ve all spoken; and I’m here to win this great fight on Saturday, May 6.”
OSCAR DE LA HOYA, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions:
“People know this is an all-out action-packed war. We haven’t had a fight like this in years; it’s a true Mexican civil war.
“Given the obvious Cinco de Mayo date and the bad blood between the boxers, I think it is safe to say this is the biggest fight in Mexican history. To give you an idea of how big this event is, let me give you some numbers. This will be the most attended indoor fight in the storied Las Vegas fight history with more than 20,000 in attendance. The fight sold out in 10 days, and we opened up more circuit-viewing theaters for everyone to watch on fight night in Las Vegas at MGM properties. Fight fans in six continents will be able to watch the fight with the HBO platform and streamed live on goldenboyppv.com giving anyone with a phone or laptop the ability to watch.
JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ, SR., Mexican Boxing Legend and Father to Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr.:
“I’m happy to be here, and I’m happy Saturday is close. I’ve lived many big moments in my life, and this is probably one of the biggest moments and fights in my life. It’s a big fight for Mexico, but I believe this a fight that can be won-anything can be done in the ring.”
BERNARD HOPKINS, Future Hall of Famer and Golden Boy Promotions Business Partner:
“This fight is a big one because I don’t believe we’ve seen a Mexican fighter face another Mexican fighter with pride, dignity and talent all on the line. I look at this as a very brutal fight because Chavez, Jr. is coming with legacy behind him and to prove what ever has happened in the past won’t happen on Saturday. Canelo is the face of one of the most important months in boxing, and I know he wants to continue that reputation. I look forward to what will happen on Saturday and I tell everyone to pay attention to what will happen.”
EDDY REYNOSO, Head Trainer to Canelo Alvarez:
“We’ve worked very hard for many years with sacrifices and lots of discipline to get to where we are today. We’ve had a fantastic camp and we’ve done all the hard work to be ready for Saturday night.
JOSE “CHEPO” REYNOSO, Manager and Trainer to Canelo Alvarez:
“There’s a saying in Mexico that there isn’t a date that wont arrive. The day is here and we are ready This has been brewing more many years, Team Canelo is very confident we will raise our hands in victory on fight night.”
GUADALUPE VALENCIA, Representative of Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr.:
“We have all come together to make this historical event happen. This fight is a very important moment to the history of Mexico. I believe in our lifetime, this fight is the fight of the moment. Both camps have worked very hard and all we can do is watch on Saturday. I’m confident Julio has done everything he can to be victorious.”
MEMO HEREDIA, Trainer to Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr.:
“This has been one of the most important camps for me, we have done two months of training camp with many different conditioning and Junior has done very well. We are very confident Junior has trained as well as he can and we look forward to a tremendous fight on Saturday.”
NACHO BERISTAIN, Trainer to Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr.:
“I’ve been in boxing for 58 years, and I’ve had many big fights here in Vegas. I’m very proud to be with Junior for this fight. We’ve trained very hard for the past two months with Junior and we are ready for victory. I’m with a fighter who is very talented and I know we will do well on Saturday.”

RICHARD STURM, President of Entertainment and Sports for MGM Resorts International:
“We are very proud to be a part of making history when we host this fight on Cinco de Mayo weekend. As many of you have noticed, T-Mobile Arena has changed the sports and entertainment landscape in Las Vegas, as we all look forward to Canelo’s return to after his knockout victory over Amir Khan last year. We also look forward to Chavez, Jr.’s first return in five years as he takes on one of the sports biggest champs for this fight.”
TONY WALKER, Vice President of HBO Pay-Per-View:
“This show is special because it honors the rich tradition of Cinco de Mayo. We know Canelo and Chavez, Jr. will put on a show in the ring-both are very talented, skilled fighters with a lot at stake.
“These are two fighters that have consistently been able to sell out arenas and generate huge pay-per-view buys. In the age of fragmented television sales, something should be said for fighters who can sell these pay-per-views to so many homes. We will see something very considerable on Saturday.”
BOB BENNETT, Nevada State Athletic Commission:
“For these two Mexican warriors, there is no better time to have these fights. The Nevada State Athletic Commission is ready and padded to go to work. We are a team, and I do a great deal of research and statistical analysis into our officials and I know everyone who has worked under pressure in Las Vegas. We are regulators with no financial interest-it’s strictly business and our number one priority is the fighter. The three judges selected for this fight have over 380 fights with them, and have performed consistently well under pressure.”

Bryan Rabello: Contra Puebla debemos hacer un gran juego y regalarle el triunfo a nuestra afición

“Es importantísimo cerrar de muy buena manera por la afición, son los que en cada partido se brindan por nosotros, son los que sufren, así que esperemos que este partido (contra Puebla) hagamos un gran juego y podamos regalarles el triunfo”, afirmó este miércoles el jugador de los Pumas Bryan Rabello, al término del entrenamiento en Cancha Dos de Ciudad Universitaria.

El futbolista chileno destacó que el equipo está consciente que tiene una gran deuda con los seguidores auriazules y mandó un mensaje claro al decir que el vestidor no está roto. “No, para nada. El grupo está bastante compacto, cada uno sabe lo que es como jugador. Como grupo estamos bastante tranquilos y conscientes de lo que estamos pasando. Las personas siempre van a querer ensuciar en ese sentido”, explicó.

Un ejemplo claro, dijo Rabello, es que los jugadores apoyan la ratificación de Francisco Palencia en la Dirección Técnica y por ello saldrán a dejar todo para conseguir la victoria este domingo. “Tenemos plena confianza en lo que ha hecho Paco. A nosotros nos ha sentado bastante bien, siempre está colaborando con nosotros y me parece bien que lo sigan ratificando. Estamos trabajando en todos los aspectos para mejorar y tratar de cerrar dignamente el torneo”, comentó.

NFL OFFSEASON WORKOUT PROGRAM DATES ANNOUNCED

May 3, 2017
 

NFL OFFSEASON WORKOUT PROGRAM DATES ANNOUNCED

Voluntary offseason workout programs are intended to provide training, teaching and physical conditioning for players.  The calendar for 2017 is below.

As per Article 21 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, each club’s official, voluntary nine-week offseason program is conducted in three phases:

Phase One consists of the first two weeks of the program with activities limited to strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation only.

Phase Two consists of the next three weeks of the program. On-field workouts may include individual player instruction and drills as well as team practice conducted on a “separates” basis. No live contact or team offense vs. team defense drills are permitted.

Phase Three consists of the next four weeks of the program. Teams may conduct a total of 10 days of organized team practice activity, or “OTAs”. No live contact is permitted, but 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills are permitted.

Article 22 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement stipulates that clubs may hold one mandatory minicamp for veteran players. This minicamp, noted below, must occur during Phase Three of the offseason program.

New head coaches are entitled to conduct an additional voluntary veteran minicamp.  Voluntary minicamps for veteran players were conducted prior to the NFL Draft, but no earlier than week three of the club’s offseason workout program and after at least one week of the two weeks of Phase One activities that the clubs may hold pursuant to Article 21. This year, five clubs held voluntary veteran minicamps, as noted below.

Each club may hold a rookie football development program for a period of seven weeks, which in 2017 may begin on May 15. During this period, no activities may be held on weekends, with the exception of one post-NFL Draft rookie minicamp, which may be conducted on either the first or second weekend following the draft. The dates of each club’s post-draft rookie minicamps are noted below.

For specific information and detailed offseason program rules, please see Articles 21 and 22 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement (beginning on page 131), available on nflcommunications.com.

Fortalecimiento futbolístico y anímico en Rayados

El Monterrey buscará un triunfo ante el Morelia que los revitalice en lo emoción

Para el Monterrey no solamente es prioridad llegar a la Liguilla del Clausura 2017 de la Liga BBVA Bancomer en el mejor momento futbolístico, sino también fuertes anímicamente.

Alfonso González reconoce la necesidad de Rayados por lograr el triunfo ante el Morelia en la última fecha de la fase regular el cual inyecte un ambiente positivo en el campamento albiazul de cara a la postemporada.

 

“Lo más importante es lo que viene. No hay rival fácil. Morelia se está jugando todo, (pero) estamos de locales y es el último partido antes de la Liguilla.

UFC RETURNS TO OKC WITH TOP YOUNG STARS AND HOMETOWN HERO

May 2, 2017

UFC BRINGS RISING STARS MICHAEL CHIESA AND KEVIN LEE TO OKLAHOMA CITY, WHILE JOHNY HENDRICKS RETURNS HOME TO FACE TIM BOETSCH

Plus:

BJ PENN vs DENNIS SIVER

(#9) ILIR LATIFI vs (#10) ANTONIO ROGERIO NOGUEIRA

 

TICKETS FOR UFC FIGHT NIGHT®: CHIESA vs LEE

AT CHESAPEAKE ENERGY ARENA ON SALE MAY 5

 

Las Vegas – The Octagon® touches down in Oklahoma City for the first time in eight years when top prospects Michael Chiesa and Kevin Lee clash in the main event of UFC FIGHT NIGHT®: CHIESA vs LEE. In the co-main event, No. 15-ranked middleweight Tim Boetsch enters enemy territory when he meets Oklahoma State alum Johny Hendricks. The action goes down Sunday, June 25 at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Okla. and will air live on FS1.

 

Riding a three-fight winning streak, No. 7 Chiesa (14-2, fighting out of Spokane Valley, Wash.) makes his first headlining appearance in Oklahoma City. Owner of 10 submission victories – five in under three minutes – Chiesa is primed to make a run to the top of the 155-pound division and his quest starts with Lee (15-2, fighting out of Las Vegas, Nev.). At just 24 years old, Lee may be one of the stars the future in the lightweight division, but he already has 10 UFC® appearances, finishing his last three fights. Hoping to vault into the top 10 of the weight class, Lee will attempt to use whatever it takes to secure the win.

 

Hendricks (18-6, fighting out of Fort Worth, Texas) looks to defend his home turf when he clashes with Boetsch (20-11, fighting out of Sunbury, Penn.) who hopes to play spoiler in Hendricks’ homecoming. Former welterweight champion Hendricks, returns to the site of his prestigious collegiate wrestling career. He is a four-time NCAA Div. 1 All-American, three-time Big 12 champion and two-time NCAA Div. 1 National Champion wrestler out of Oklahoma State. When he returns to Oklahoma, he’ll be looking to keep his perfect record at 185 pounds intact with a big win over Boetsch. With knockouts in 12 of his wins, Boetsch has the power to end the fight at any given moment and he’ll attempt to use that power to continue his climb up the middleweight rankings.

 

As the only active member of the UFC Hall of Fame, BJ Penn (16-11-2, fighting out of Hilo, Hawaii) has fought some of the biggest names in MMA history, including Georges St-Pierre, Matt Hughes, Diego Sanchez and Nick Diaz. When he faces off with German finisher Dennis Siver (22-11, 1 NC) he’ll need to use his world class jiu-jitsu to counter Siver’s elite striking. Siver is looking for the biggest win of his career and being able to add a victory over Penn to his resume will do just that. With 14 finishes in 22 pro victories – seven via knockout and seven by submission – Siver has the versatility to win the bout wherever it takes place.

 

Additional bouts:

  • In a battle of top-10 light heavyweights, No. 9 Ilir Latifi (16-5, 1 NC, fighting out of Malmo, Sweden) collides with No. 10 Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (22-7, fighting out of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
  • Two high-level kickboxers jockey for position in the strawweight division when No. 9 Felice Herrig (12-6, fighting out of Crystal Lake, Ill.) meets undefeated No. 15 Justine Kish (6-0, fighting out of Los Angeles, Calif.)
  • Former strawweight champion, No. 9 Carla Esparza (12-4, fighting out of Irvine, Calif.) takes on No. 10 Maryna Moroz (8-1, fighting out of Volnogorsk, Ukraine) in her quest to get back to the top of the 115-pound division
  • Fan favorite Clay Guida (32-14, fighting out of Johnsburg, Ill.) clashes with dynamic finisher Erik Koch (15-4, fighting out of Milwaukee, Wisc.) in a lightweight duel

Los Tigres saca las garras y le gana a los Xolos

Los Tigres saca las garras y le gana a los Xolos

 

Con un contundente marcador de 3 goles por 0, los felinos vencen a los Xolos de Tijuana en “El Volcán”  y se colocan en zona de Liguilla.

 

Desde los primeros minutos del partido a los regios se les vieron las ganas de sudar la camiseta para obtener el ansiado triunfo y esto trajo como recompensa que al minuto 13, por parte del mediocampista Jesús Dueñas se abriera el marcador, transcurría el minuto 42 y Lucas Zelayarán  se hizo presente; dos minutos después, Juninho completa la sentencia de los perros de Tijuana para darle el triunfo a los felinos.

 

Obteniendo 22 puntos luego de ganarle al líder de la tabla general, el actual campeón regiomontano espera confirmar su pase para la Liguilla del futbol mexicano en la próxima jornada de visita en el Corregidora enfrentando a los Gallos Blancos del Querétaro.
