Sep 15, 2013

Canelo Reprueba ante Mayweather

Floyd”Money”Mayweather 45-0(26 KO’s) vs Saul”Canelo”Alvarez 42-1-1(30 KO’s)

Se termino la espera por fin llego el gran combate en el MGM Gran de las Vegas,Nevada,donde se enfrentaron Floyd “Money”Mayweather contra Saul”Canelo”Alvarez.
Da inicio el combate con un Canelo precavido guardando su distancia ante Floyd y donde los dos se midieron distancias ya en los tres primeros round Floyd con dificultad fue superior a canelo por la gran velocidad, en el cuarto round Mayweather descontrola a canelo y donde Saúl descuida su guardia ante Floyd donde el americano utiliza muy bien su Yap y por momentos canelo se empieza a desesperar y caer en el juego sicológico de Floyd.
Por momentos Canelo fue al frente presionando a Floyd pero la rapidez y con un buen caminado por el ring eso le favoreció a Floyd y en el especto sicológico Mayweather logra su adjetivo desesperar y a se que Saúl pierda su plan de pelea, llegamos en el round numero 12 y la pelea seguía al misma tónica con destellos del pelirrojo pero que la experiencia de Floyd fue mucho mas superior sobre el Jaliciense y alumno Canelo salio reprobado ante Mayweather quien se llevo el triunfo por decisión dividida.

Danny García 27-0(16 KO’s)vs Lucas Mathysses 34-3(32 KO’s)

El primer round el argentino aprovechaba la guardia baja de García ,Lucas con gran velocidad superaba a su rival y por momentos Danny encontraba al argentino usando bien su Yap.
La pelea se emparejaba y Danny mejoraba su técnica ante Lucas con mayor movilidad en el ring y con excelente yap, por momentos la pelea se tornaba un poco sucia con cabezazos y golpes bajos departe de Danny, Lucas bajo su ritmo por la inflamación de su ojo derecho en el cual pierde visibilidad.
Lucas como un gran guerrero no baja la guardia apesar de la inflamación del ojo ya en los últimos segundo del doceavo round García propina una golpe bajo a Lucas por lo cual le quitaron un punto y como las grandes peleas de la historia termina con una entrega de los dos peladores, al final los jueces le dan el triunfo por decisión mayoritaria a Danny García.

Carlos Molina se lleva la victoria por decisión dividida sobre su oponente Ishe Smith y se convierte el nuevo campeón Superwelter del FIB.

Pablo Cesar Cano 27-3-1(20 KO’s) se lleva el triunfo por decisión dividida sobre Ashley Theophane 33-6-1(10 KO’s)

Conferencia Mayweather y Canelo en las Vegas

Sep 12, 2013
FLOYD “MONEY” MAYWEATHER & CANELO ALVAREZ
FINAL PRESS CONFERENCE
THREE DAYS BEFORE “THE ONE: MAYWEATHER vs. CANELO”
 “He’s 42-0, but he hasn’t faced 42 Floyd Mayweathers” – Floyd Mayweather

 

“I don’t care about his record….I’m coming to win” – Canelo Alvarez
Saturday, Sept. 14, LIVE on SHOWTIME PPV®
From the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEV. (Sept. 11, 2013) – Eight-time, five-division World Champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Super Welterweight World Champion and Mexican Superstar Canelo Alvarez were all business during Wednesday’s final press conference at KA Theatre at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, just three days before Saturday’s historic “THE ONE: MAYWEATHER vs. CANELO.”Canelo’s WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine Super Welterweight World Championships and Mayweather’s WBA Super Welterweight Super World Championship will be at stake on SHOWTIME PPV in the most significant boxing showdown in recent memory.Here’s what the fighters, promoters and trainers had to say during the event:

FLOYD MAYWEATHER:

 

“Its fight time, what else can I say?   If the game plan is to keep pressure, I can handle it.  If the game plan is to out box me, nobody can out box me. You have to be able to out match me mentally, and I’m the strongest mental fighter in the sport of boxing.

 

“I’ve been here before so I know what it takes. He’s 42-0, but he hasn’t faced 42 Floyd Mayweathers because he’d be 0-42.  I’m at the pinnacle.  I’m the face of boxing and I’m dedicated to my craft.
“I’m Floyd Mayweather; I can turn any fighter into a star. I don’t worry about running out of opponents. I’ve got guys under my banner I can turn into stars and fight.”

 

“September 14 is just another stepping stone, another opponent to me.  But he knows he’s facing Floyd Mayweather; I’m facing just another opponent.

 

“Career-wise, I’m OK, no matter what the outcome is.  I never worry about the outcome.  When I go into any fight, I’m not focused on the money or anything.  I’m focused on going out there, performing well, and giving the fans what they want to see – excitement.  That’s what it’s all about; it’s about the fans winning. He’s still got a lot of weight to get off.  My weight is made, I woke up this morning 150 (pounds).

 

“I guess other fighters look at it as you win some, you lose some.  Me, I look at it as I want to win them all.  I’m a winner.  I don’t lose.

 

On how he knows Canelo still has to cut weight:
“I know it, because it’s my job to know it.  My job as a fighter to know everything about any opponent I’m facing.”

 

On his most important advantage:
“Being able to just make changes and adjust instantly.  It’s no different from you seeing Shane (Mosley) hit me with a good shot.  I say it’s not a problem, because Shane isn’t going to cut me on my face, I’m not going for that.  But Shane is a future Hall of Famer; I can’t take anything away from Shane. And someday Canelo will go down in the Hall of Fame, as one of the opponents I beat.”
CANELO ALVAREZ:
“I don’t care about his record.  I’m not coming to make a good fight, I’m coming to win.
“When you fight Floyd you have to be ready for every aspect of a fight.  You have to be able to adjust mentally as well as physically.  I have to be very, very smart and ready to change my plan at any time.

 

“You’ll see how I do it. You’ll see how I beat him.  I’m calm and I’m just ready to fight.

 

“We’ve prepared like never before.  Floyd is a fighter who throws like five punchers a round and he lands them – that’s why he wins rounds.  But we’re prepared for that; we’re prepared for everything.

 

“I’m ready for the best Floyd possible.  He can change his game plan and I will be ready.

 

“I’ve studied him.  I know his style and I know what he’s going to do.  “I’m confident I will win because I know everything about him.  I’ve prepared for everything.

 

“It’s important from the opening bell to fight smart and not fall into his game plan.  I need to stick to my plan, not fall into his.

 

“He’s a very good counterpuncher but I’m ready for that.  I have to be smart with his counterpunching but I’m confident we can handle it.

 

“It’s important to throw combinations.  You have to know how to apply them and you have to hit the head and the body.  That will be key.

 

It truly is a pleasure to be part of this. I appreciate all of the support for this fight.  I want to thank my team for working hard with me. On Saturday night, I will be victorious.”

 

On having all of Mexico rooting for him:
“There’s no pressure whatsoever.  It’s motivating to have all of Mexico rooting for me.”

 

On why Floyd hasn’t talked much trash leading into this fight:
“I think it’s because his other opponents want to talk trash.  I respect everyone except when we get in the ring.”
RICHARD SCHAEFER, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions

 

“The WBC has produced a very special belt for this occasion. It’s a first time that they have melted a big gold bar into the belt. This is a belt made of pure gold.

 

“Our sponsors put over $40 million of activation behind this promotion.  Corona is our lead sponsor and they spent 50 percent of their conventional ad buy on our promotion.

 

“Boxing is the highest rated television programming in Mexico.  Mexico’s government and the tourism board have put their promotional efforts in the sport of boxing.  They have become a great partner and ambassador of this promotion and Golden Boy Promotions.

 

“In addition, we have sponsorships and partnerships with Fathom, Nature Nutrition, Fred Loya Insurance, O’Reilly Auto Parts, AT&T and Valvoline.

 

“Fathom is going to be showing this promotion live on 550 screens.  This is our sixth fight with Fathom.  We’ve already sold out many theaters already. There are more than 26,000 seats for closed circuit at the MGM Mirage Resort properties as well as many bars and restaurants across the country.

 

“In Australia, the pay per view has already broken all-time records with three days before fight night.

 

“This fight has been off the charts. This fight is something special. Celebrities are calling us to purchase tickets.

 

“We hope to set the all-time pay-per-view record come Saturday night.”
LEONARD ELLERBE, CEO of Mayweather Promotions
“Floyd is the face of boxing, the highest paid athlete in sports. He’s accomplished everything, broke all the records.  Come Saturday night, you guys will see the same old Floyd Mayweather, the one that always wins.
“This has been a wonderful promotion so far and the fans will be the real winners.”
STEPHEN ESPINOZA, EVP SHOWTIME Sports
“Thank you to the MGM for its hospitality and Richard Schaefer and Golden Boy Promotions.
“This is the biggest and best event-THE ONE.  We have the biggest live gate.  We have a great line-up of sponsors.  We are live streaming all of our events leading up to the fight.  CBS has had 150 radio stations across the United States promoting the fight.
“None of this happens without Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez.  This event doesn’t happen without their commitment.
“For those of you who are college football fans, I urge you all to tune in to the start of this Saturday’s college football game on CBS at 12:30 PT/3:30 ET.  Be sure not to be late because there will be a surprise for boxing fans at the top of that broadcast.”
JOSE “CHEPO” REYNOSO, Trainer of Canelo Alvarez
“This is a historic fight, but the time for talking is over. On Saturday night Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will make history and he will be victorious.
EDDIE REYNOSO, Co-trainer of Canelo Alvarez

“It’s a great pleasure to be a part of this historic event. Obviously, as a Mexican, we always come out to demonstrate that we win can and on Saturday it will be no different. We will prove that we can.”

Canelo Alvarez Derrotara a Mayweather?

Sep 5, 2013

WILL CANELO ALVAREZ BE “THE ONE”
TO FINALLY DEFEAT FLOYD MAYWEATHER?

A Look Back at Mayweather’s Mexican Opponents and
Canelo’s Chances of Making Boxing History

LAS VEGAS (September 3, 2013) – If Canelo Alvarez is awestruck by the prospect of trying to do something that no one else has done – defeat pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather – he doesn’t show it.

Canelo maintained the same cool, calm expression throughout a nine-city press tour to promote “THE ONE: Mayweather vs. Canelo” – the highly anticipated, super welterweight world championship pay-per-view showdown at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, Sept. 14. It was the look of a man who is never hurried and never worried. All business.

Is Canelo “THE ONE?”

Can he succeed where so many other superb boxers have failed? Can he not only be the first fighter to defeat Mayweather, but also the first of Mexican descent? Mayweather’s Mexican foes include such notables as Jose Luis Castillo, Juan Manuel Marquez, Jesus Chavez, Genaro Hernandez and Oscar De La Hoya.

De La Hoya thinks so. De La Hoya lost a split 12-round decision to Mayweather in a record-setting pay-per-view event in 2007. One judge scored it as a victory for De La Hoya. That is as close as anyone has come to dethroning Mayweather in the last decade.

“For one thing, youth is on his side,” De La Hoya said of the 23-year-old Canelo, who hails from Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. “But the real advantage will be the intelligence. People will also be surprised with his speed.”

Canelo, a redhead with matinee idol looks, is the No. 1 boxing attraction in Mexico. He is on the cusp of joining the same club as Mexican boxing legends like Carlos Zarate, Julio Cesar Chavez Sr., Marco Antonio Barrera and Erik Morales. A victory over Mayweather would cement his legacy as one of the all-time greats in Mexican boxing history.

Canelo said he started watching Mayweather in his fights with Jose Luis Castillo and Diego Corrales in 2001 and 2002. He really took notice when Mayweather fought De La Hoya in 2007.

Who was he rooting for in that match?

“Oscar, of course,” he said with a laugh.

Canelo now has De La Hoya as his mentor. He said he will lean on De La Hoya to get information on what makes Mayweather uncomfortable in the ring. De La Hoya, who had a good strategy against Mayweather, said he will keep repeating three letters to Canelo – J-A-B. It was something De La Hoya couldn’t do consistently because he had a torn left rotator cuff in their fight in 2007.

Canelo won’t be coming in with any such aliments, and if he follows De La Hoya’s advice, he could turn the tables on Mayweather. Plus, Canelo doesn’t believe that he’s too inexperienced for Mayweather at this time.

“I’m very young, but I’m experienced as well,” said Canelo, who has fought in 43 fights (42-0-1 with 30 KO’s). “I’ve been learning the last couple of years. The position that I’m in right now, Mayweather was once in [when Mayweather was learning and growing as a fighter].”

Mayweather has conquered every boxer of Mexican heritage that has been put in front of him. Jesus Chavez, who was 29 at the time that Mayweather upended him for the WBC junior lightweight title, and Castillo, who was 28 when Mayweather twice defeated him for the WBC lightweight title.

Mayweather also defeated Genaro Hernandez for the WBC junior lightweight title; Hernandez retired from boxing after the loss. Mayweather fought Juan Manuel Marquez and dominated him en route to a 12-round decision. He also edged De La Hoya for the WBC 154-pound title, while breaking the pay-per-view record in the history of the sport.

But none of Mayweather’s earlier opponents had the youth, punching power and granite chin that Canelo possesses. Plus, Canelo is naturally bigger than Mayweather and could enter the ring with a 20-pound weight advantage.

Mayweather, who typically campaigns at 147 pounds, chose the bigger Canelo and will fight him at a catch weight of 152 pounds for the second fight in his new contract with SHOWTIME Networks, Inc., and its parent company, CBS Corporation. It certainly makes for an intriguing match, and anything but a gimme for “Money.”

Canelo said he has visualized how he will fight Mayweather, but he knows that whatever his plan is, it must have flexibility.

“Floyd is a different kind of fighter and this is a different kind of fight,” Canelo said. “For every fight there’s a game plan. But that game plan can go out the window in the first round. So you have to have a Plan B and a Plan C. And that is what we’ll work on.”

The conventional wisdom is that Canelo is too inexperienced to defeat the ring-savvy Mayweather, but Canelo points out that he has been fighting professionally since he was 15 years old and most of those 43 fights on his resume (42-0-1, 30 KO’s) were not against low caliber fighters. He has triumphed impressively against former undisputed welterweight champion Carlos Baldomir, future Hall of Famer Shane Mosley, Matthew Hatton, Kermit Cintron and former WBA junior middleweight champion Austin Trout.

Canelo put on a dazzling boxing display against Trout, who was coming off a shocking upset over Miguel Cotto. It was the type of victory that made Mayweather take notice. It also stamped Canelo as more than ready to seriously challenge Mayweather.

“I’m fighting the best. This is my chance to beat the best,” Canelo said. “It’s a chance to go down in history as the first guy to beat Floyd Mayweather.”

Jhonny Gonzalez Knocks Out Abner Mares

Aug 24, 2013

HOWTIME SHOCKER AT STUBHUB!

JHONNY GONZALEZ KNOCKS OUT ABNER MARES
IN FIRST ROUND TO WIN WBC FEATHERWEIGHT TITLE
IN UPSET OF THE YEAR BEFORE 7,686 FANS

Undefeated Leo Santa Cruz Captures WBC Super Bantamweight Crown

With Third-Round Knockout Over Defending Champion Victor Terrazas;
Replay Is Tomorrow, Sunday, Aug. 25, at 9 a.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME®

CARSON, Calif. (Aug. 24, 2013) – In a leading candidate for Upset of the Year – and possible Knockout of the Year – former two-division world champion and knockout artist Jhonny Gonzalez (55-8, 47 KO’s) registered a stunning 2:55, first-round knockout over previously unbeaten Abner Mares (26-1-1, 14 KO’s) Saturday on SHOWTIME® before 7,686 loud and enthusiastic fans at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.

Gonzalez’s shocking upset victory in the WBC featherweight title fight sets up a possible showdown with Leo Santa Cruz (25-0-1, 15 KO’s), who scored two knockdowns en route to an impressive third-round knockout over defending WBC super bantamweight champion Victor Terrazas (37-3-1, 21 KO’s) in the SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING co-feature.

“This moment right now is the single greatest and most glorious moment of my life,” said an elated Gonzalez, who reclaimed the 126-pound belt he once held and breathed new life into his career with the win over his former training partner. “When I came to the United States for this fight no one gave me any credit. All they talked about was Mares fighting Santa Cruz. I didn’t say anything but I knew I was getting disrespected.”

Both Gonzalez, from Mexico City, Mexico, and the former WBC featherweight champion, Mares of Downey, Calif., by way of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, each came out aggressively. Halfway through the opening round, Gonzalez connected with a solid left hook Mares never saw coming, dropping him to the canvas and leading to an eight-count. After Mares made it to his feet, Gonzalez landed another of punches that ended with a left hook and a right cross that knocked Mares backwards. Referee Jack Reiss stepped in and stopped the fight with five seconds to go in the first round.

“I knew I had him badly hurt after the first knockdown,” Gonzalez said.

“I’m good,” said Mares, who held titles at 118 and 122 pounds before claiming the featherweight belt last May. He was making his eighth consecutive appearance on SHOWTIME. “You have to win and you have to learn how to lose in this sport. I’m not in the sport to remain undefeated, but I’m here to fight the best.

“I was alright with the ref’s decision. He did his job and I respect it. But I thought I could go on,” he added. “Now I’m going to take a break and enjoy my family.”

Like Gonzalez, Santa Cruz of Los Angeles, by way of Huetamo, Michoacan, Mexico, went to work early and often against Terrazas, throwing 267 punches in just two and a half rounds. Terrazas, of Guadalajara, was cut just under the right eye in the second round and Santa Cruz took advantage landing punch after punch, finally sending Terrazas down for a nine-count, and then again for an eight-count midway through the third. Referee Lou Moret halted matters at 2:09 of the third round.

“This is a dream come true,” said Santa Cruz, 25, who had fought 106 fewer rounds in his career than Terrazas, who is 30. “I’ve wanted the green belt my entire life. Once I saw the eye start to swell I knew I had to go after him and put the pressure on him.”

Terrazas said, “The eye was not a problem. This was a good fight. He was tough like I expected. He just caught me. I wanted to continue the fight.”

Earlier on SHOWTIME EXTREME Antonio Orozco (18-0, 14 KO’s), San Diego, Calif., overpowered Ivan Hernandez (29-3, 22 KO’s), Miami, Fla., in round three of a scheduled 10-round junior welterweight bout.

In a battle of featherweights, 2012 U.S. Olympian Joseph “Jo Jo” Diaz Jr. (7-0, 5 KO’s) of South El Monte, Calif., looked impressive in a third-round knockout over Noel Mendoza (6-3-1, 1 KO), of Phoenix, Ariz., the referee stopping the bout at 1:54 of the third of the scheduled six-round bout. Diaz knocked Mendoza down with a left cross, right hook combo that sent Mendoza to the canvas for good.

In the first SHOWTIME EXTREME bout between heavyweights, 2012 U.S. Olympian Dominic Breazeale (6-0, 6 KO’s), of Los Angeles, passed the stiffest test of his young career and remained undefeated with his sixth consecutive knockout, this one coming on a TKO in the fifth round against Lenroy Thomas (16-3, 8 KO’s) of St. Catherine, Jamaica.
