EDDIE ALVAREZ AND JUSTIN GAETHJE NAMED COACHES FOR SEASON 26 OF THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER

Jul 17, 2017 0

FORMER UFC® CHAMPION EDDIE ALVAREZ AND ELECTRIFYING NEWCOMER JUSTIN GAETHJE TO COACH NEXT SEASON OF THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER®

New season debuts Wednesday, August 30 on FS1

Las Vegas – For the second time in series history, the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter® will introduce a new weight class and crown a new champion. At the helm, will be two of the sports’ best and most exhilarating athletes when No. 3 lightweight Eddie Alvarez and No. 6 Justin Gaethje assume the coaching responsibilities for The Ultimate Fighter®: A New World Champion.

 

Alvarez and Gaethje will lead 16 flyweight women throughout the season and lead them to a shot at UFC® gold, with the winner of season 26 becoming the inaugural women’s 125-pound champion. Season 20 saw Carla Esparza emerge victorious earning the strawweight world title via third-round submission over Rose Namajunas. The Ultimate Fighter remains the highest rated and most watched original show on FS1 and will premiere Wednesday, August 30 at 10 p.m. ET.

 

Former UFC champion Alvarez (28-5, 1 NC, fighting out of Philadelphia, Penn.) has held a title in nearly every promotion he’s ever competed in and will utilize that world-class pedigree to groom a champion in the UFC’s 12th weight class. He has 22 finishes – 17 knockouts and five submissions – in his 28 professional wins and packs one of the most powerful punches in the 155-pound division.

 

After making an impression in his promotional debut during International Fight Week™ with a second-round knockout of No. 5 Michael Johnson, Gaethje (18-0, fighting out of Arvada, Colo.) will set his sights on coaching the next world champion in route to taking another step toward becoming a champion himself. With 15 knockouts and one submission to his credit, Gaethje has become must-watch television every time he competes and will no doubt try to pass his highlight reel moves on to the ladies he’s coaching.

LOS ANGELES (July 15, 2017): Making the first defense of his WBC Super Featherweight Championship, Miguel “El Alacran” Berchelt (32-1, 28 KOs) knocked down Takashi Miura (31-4-2, 24 KOs) in the first round before rolling to a clear-cut unanimous decision victory in the 12-round main event of HBO Boxing After Dark live from Los Angeles’ “Fabulous” Forum.
VIPs for the night included Chairman and CEO Oscar De La Hoya, World Champion and Future Boxing Hall of Famer Bernard Hopkins, Boxing Hall of Famer Roberto Duran, Real Madrid and Spanish National Team soccer player Sergio Ramos, Tampa Bay Rays baseball player JP Arencibia, Former three division world champion Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez, NABA super featherweight champion Carlos “The Solution” Morales, NABO Super Featherweight Champion Alberto Machado, 2008 & 2012 Brazilian Olympian Everton Lopes, Jesus Soto Karass, 2016 Mexican Olympian Raul Curiel, Ronny Rios, Rene Alvarado, Charles Huerta, Azat Hovanissyan, Cesar Diaz, and Roger Gutierrez.
 
“I knew this fight was going to be won with intelligence,” Berchelt said. “Miura is a warrior, and fought till the end. Miura has the toughest left hand in the division. He kept coming forward, and when he connected his punches, they did hurt. I knew I was going to fight an ex-world champion, so I prepared myself well. I have proven that I am the best by taking on the two toughest champions in the division with Vargas and Miura. I am ready to fight anyone.”
“Berchelt was a smart fighter,” Miura said. “He did not allow me to get my distance.”
In the co-main event, Jezreel “El Invisible” Corrales (22-1, 8 KOs) survived two knockdowns to maintain his WBA Super Featherweight title with a majority decision win over Robinson Castellanos (22-12, 14 KOs). Castellanos dropped Corrales twice in a wild fourth round, with Corrales barely beating the count after the second knockdown. But the Panamanian champion regained his footing in the fifth and sixth and sent Castellanos down with a left hook in the seventh. After a nasty clash of heads in the 10th that busted Castellanos’ left cheek wide open, the fight was stopped and went to the scorecards. The judges awarded scores of 94-94, 94-93, 96-92, giving Corrales the majority decision.
“I knew this would be an interesting fight, I am so happy about the victory,” Corrales said. “This is probably the best fight that I’ve had in my career so far. I’m looking at tonight’s main event as one of my future opponents.”
“I am honestly so sad,” Castellanos said. “That head butt should have disqualified him; it could have been fatal. I knew coming in that I was in enemy territory, however I felt that I was ahead in the cards. I feel terrible.”
Newly crowned WBC Intercontinental Light Heavyweight Champion Sullivan Barrera (20-1, 14 KOs) gave a career-making performance, getting off the deck in the first round to take a 10-round unanimous decision victory over Joe Smith, Jr. (23-2, 19 KOs). The judges scored the fight 96-93 and 97-92 twice.
“I feel very happy about this win. Joe Smith, Jr. is a great champion, and I respect him very much,” Barrera said. “This title wouldn’t have been possible with my amazing team, and my father here tonight was also amazing. When Smith, Jr. knocked me down in the second round, I got back up cause that’s who I am. In my fight with Shabranskyy the same thing happened. I shoot back up to get the victory.”
“Sullivan Barrera fought a good fight and I congratulate him,” said Joe Smith, Jr.
In the night’s quickest, jaw-dropping knockout victory, highly touted Ryan “Kingry” Garcia (10-0, 9 KOs) needed only 1:14 of a scheduled four-round fight to knock out experienced Mario Macias (27-22-1, 14 KOs).
“It felt like a blur. Like a dream that just happened quickly. Although I wouldn’t rate this as my best performance since I think my last fight against Tyrone Luckey was the best. I want to be on the Canelo-GGG card, and continue to step up the level of opponents I face. Maybe when I turn 20 years old I will start to call out world champions.”
Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta (31-1-2, 16 KOs) demonstrated he is back in full force with an eighth-round technical knockout win over ring veteran Martin Honorio (33-11-1, 16 KOs). The one-sided fight showed off Gesta’s superior accuracy, strength, and footwork. The referee waved the fight off as Gesta was unleashing a flurry of power shots on Honorio.
“It feels great to be back, I am almost at 100% to where I want to be after my surgery,” said Mercito Gesta. “With all the rehabilitation and training under Freddie Roach, I am on track to fight for a title very soon. Right now, I just want to keep improving, and keep focused.”
In the upset of the night, Diuhl Olguin (11-7-2, 9 KOs) outpointed Guadalajara, Mexico’s Horacio “Violento” Garcia (32-3-1, 22 KOs). The action-packed eight-round featherweight fight went the distance, with Garcia going down twice. The judges awarded the fight to Olguin with scores of 73-77, 73-77, and 74-76.
“I feel very happy about my first win outside of Mexico. I just can’t believe what just happened,” said Olguin. “I wasn’t the favorite, and I had to move up a couple of weight classes to take this fight. I want to start to take on tougher contenders in the sport in my weight class.”
Opening up the Ring TV livestreamed portion of the evening, Manny “Chato” Robles, Jr. (13-0, 5 KOs) broke Christian Esquivel (29-12, 22 KOs) down to land the technical knockout victory in the fifth round of a scheduled eight-round featherweight fight. The fighters were in a heavy exchange when Esquivel’s corner waved the towel to stop the fight.
“It was a strange ending, but he was getting a lot of punishment from me. The referees were actually going to call it after the fifth round finished,” said Manny Robles, Jr. “I think my preparation allowed me to win each round, and I am glad I got to do that in front of all my friends and family who were cheering me on here at the Forum.”
Kick-starting the evening Samar Philippines; Recky Dulay (10-2, 7 KOs) stopped Curundu, Panama’s Jaime “Jaimito” Arboleda (10-1, 8 KOs) in the third round in a super lightweight bout that was scheduled for eight-rounds. With a right hand cross to the head that left Arboledo unsteady, Dulay handed Arboleda his first loss.
“This was my first fight in California, so it means a lot as I continue to develop my career,” said Recky Dulay. “I’ve been training here in the U.S for about 2-3 months, so I am ready to fight more here now.”

LOS ANGELES, California – La categoría supermosca una de las divisiones más históricas y emocionantes del boxeo profesional vivirá una noche de ensueño el próximo sábado 9 de septiembre en el StubHub Center de Carson, California cuando los mejores púgiles de dicha división estén en acción en un gran escenario.

Los tres combates serán televisados por HBO en “Boxing After Dark” comenzando a las 10:15 p.m. (Este/Pacifico).

En el combate semiestelar de la función denominada “Superfly” el campeón supermosca de la Organización Mundial de Boxeo (OMB) NAOYA “THE MONSTER” INOUE, (13-0-0, 11 KO’s) de Yokohama, Japón estará haciendo su esperado debut en los Estados Unidos contra el clasificado mundial ANTONIO “CARITA” NIEVES, (17-1-2, 9 KO’s) de Cleveland, Ohio.

En el duelo que abrirá la transmisión el ex campeón mundial supermosca del CMB CARLOS “PRINCIPE” CUADRAS, (36-1-1, 27 KO’s)) de Guamúchil, Sinaloa, México se enfrentará al ex campeón mundial mosca de la OMB y de la Asociación Mundial de Boxeo (AMB) JUAN FRANCISCO “EL GALLO” ESTRADA, (35-2-0, 25 KO’s) de Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, México en duelo eliminatorio del CMB en peso supermosca.

“Estamos muy emocionados de poder presentar esta gran triple jornada en un escenario reconocido por su grandes peleas. Estos son seis talentosos boxeadores en dos peleas de campeonato y una eliminatoria que sacará chispas”, dijo Tom Loeffler de K2 Promotions.

 

“Estamos seguros que los ganadores serán los aficionados que podrán ver si el nuevo campeón Sor Rungvisai repetirá su victoria sobre González o verán al gran monarca nicaragüense vengar su derrota y recuperar el cinturón que perdió controversialmente”, agrego Loeffler.

“También hay que agradecer a Peter Nelson de HBO por interesarse en las divisiones pequeñas y que hace posible este tipo de evento en el cual cinco de los mejores pesos supermoscas estarán en acción en un mismo escenario en una gran noche de boxeo”, dijo Loeffler.

“Esta triple jornada de gran acción supermosca el próximo 9 de septiembre ha despertado mucho interés entre la afición de boxeo. Aplaudimos a los seis boxeadores por tener el valor de ponerse los guantes y enfrentar a lo mejor de su división”, dijo Peter Nelson, Vicepresidente de HBO.

“Yo estoy entrenando muy fuerte para salir con el brazo en alto. Los aficionados verán otra gran pelea entre nosotros y estoy seguro que regresaré a casa con el cinturón. Es un honor para mí enfrentar a una leyenda como los es González, quien es el mejor rival que he tenido en toda mi carrera. Le doy las gracias al CMB, HBO Y K2 Promotions por esta nueva oportunidad de subir al ring con un gran peleador y exponer mi campeonato mundial”, dijo Sor Rungvisai.

“Estoy listo para regresar a la batalla y recuperar mi campeonato mundial supermosca del CMB ante Sor Rungvisai el próximo 9 de septiembre. Yo sé lo que tengo que hacer para salir victorioso y con la ayuda de Dios voy a volver a ser campeón mundial. Como siempre le agradezco al Sr. Honda, K2 Promotions y a HBO por esta oportunidad”, dijo González.

El pasado 18 de marzo, González, reconocido entonces como el mejor boxeador libra por libra del mundo y campeón supermosca del CMB se enfrentó a Sor Rungivisai ante una casa llena en el histórico Madison Square Garden de Nueva York.

A pesar de haber caído en el primer round González, arremetió contra su rival a lo largo de una verdadera guerra sin cuartel en donde los golpes de ambas partes estuvieron al orden del día, y donde también hubo varios cabezazos por la agresividad y la guardia zurda del tailandés. Sor Rungvisai fue declarado el vencedor por los jueces que dieron puntuaciones de 114-112, 114-112 y 113-113 en una pelea que seguramente será considerada para las mejores del 2017, fue así que el CMB ordenó la revancha inmediata tras las cerradas puntuaciones.

“Mi sueño siempre ha sido pelear en los Estados Unidos y estoy muy emocionado de poder hacerlo el próximo 9 de septiembre ante Antonio Nieves y espero darles a todos los aficionados una gran pelea”, dijo Inoue sobre su defensa titular y debut en los Estados Unidos.

“Estoy muy emocionado de enfrentar a Naoya Inoue por el título supermosca de la OMB el próximo 9 de septiembre. Esta es mi primera pelea titular y estoy muy agradecido con HBO, Tom Loeffler y Tim Van Newhouse por hacerlo posible”, dijo Nieves.

Inoue, de 24 años de edad, ha hecho cinco defensas de su campeonato de la OMB el cual conquistó el 30 de diciembre del 2014 al noquear a Omar Narváez en Tokio Japón.

Apodado “The Monster” por sus espectaculares nocauts y poder en ambos puños, Inoue quiere darse a conocer ante la comunidad asiática de los Estados Unidos. En su más reciente combate el pasado 21 de mayo en Tokio, Japón noqueó en el tercer round a Ricardo Rodríguez.

Nieves, residente de Cleveland, Olio pero de origen Puertorriqueño y buscará agregarse a los grandes campeones de la Isla del Encanto. Fue invicto durante los primeros seis años de su carrera profesional, Nieves sufrió su primera derrota el pasado 10 de marzo en Detroit Michigan al caer ante Nikolkai Potapov por decisión dividida en un combate muy cerrado.

“Estoy ansioso de regresar al ring el próximo 9 de septiembre para enfrentar a Juan Estrada, quien es boxeador muy duro, pero saldré victorioso y le brindaré a los aficionados una gran pelea para luego enfrentar al ganador de la pelea entre González y Sor Rungvisai para recuperar mi campeonato mundial”, dijo Cuadras.

“Carlos Cuadras es un gran campeón, pero está en mi camino y lo tengo que vencer para lograr mi meta: Ser el mejor supermosca del mundo. Nos vemos el 9 de septiembre”, dijo Estrada.

En una de las mejores peleas del 2016, el ex campeón mundial supermosca del CMB, Cuadras sufrió su primera derrota en ocho años al caer controversialmente por puntos ante “Chocolatito” González ante una casa llena en el Forum de Inglewood el 10 de septiembre. Fue una pelea muy disputada en la que el mexicano vino de menos a más. En su más reciente combate el pasado 18 de marzo en Nueva York, Cuadras derrotó por puntos a David Carmona.

Estrada fue monarca mosca de la OMB y AMB, títulos que arrebató a Brian Viloria en una aguerrida pelea. Defendió sus coronas exitosamente ante los ex campeones mundiales Giovani Segura y Hernán Márquez. El 17 de noviembre del 2012 en Los Angeles cayó por puntos ante “Chocolatito” González en un aguerrido combate que se disputó en las 108 libras.

MIAMI, Okla. (July 15, 2017) – Ivan Baranchyk went the distance with Keenan Smith in front of Baranchyk’s adopted hometown in the main event of a quadrupleheader featuring eight returning fighters on Friday’s ShoBox: The New Generation from Buffalo Run Casino & Resort.

 

In a battle of undefeated fighters, the hard-hitting Baranchyk (15-0, 10 KOs) took advantage of a one-point holding deduction against Sims in the fifth round to earn the decision in his fifth appearance on the ShoBox series and six consecutive fight out of Miami.

 

“I’m happy to be fighting back home in Miami, I love to fight here,” said Baranchyk, who was happy with his win but displeased with his overall performance. “I came out too hard and tried too hard to knock Smith out. I really wanted to knock him out which is why my punches were wild.”

 

Smith (11-1, 5 KOs) sealed his fate when he was deducted a point by officials after excessive holding throughout the first half of the fight. He became the 166th fighter to lose his undefeated record on the ShoBox series.

 

“They weren’t playing fair,” Smith said. “Anything that I did, the referee was on me. I was hitting him with clean body shots, and he kept telling me to keep them up, and then he took a point for holding. I don’t know what fight [the judges] were watching.”

 

The fight was a hard-hitting and physical affair from the beginning. Baranchyk came out swinging, landing just 21% of his jabs and 29% of total punches, edging out Smith who landed just 22% of his total punches.

 

“I came out too hard and tried to knock him out, which is why my punches were wild,” said Baranchyk.

 

In the co-feature, Rolando Chinea upset previously unbeaten former national amateur champion Kenneth Sims Jr. in a close majority decision.

 

“I was most confident after the second round of the fight, when I noticed he was sticking his tongue out and making certain gestures that showed he was tired,” Chinea said. “If I had to grade myself I would rate my overall performance as a B… I have a lot to improve on and my job here is never finished.”

 

Like Smith, Sims (12-1, 4 KOs) suffered the first loss of his career, becoming the 165th fighter to lose his undefeated record on the ShoBox series.

 

In the wild final round, the pair combined for 291 punches and 85 connects, but Chinea’s surge earned him the majority decision win.

 

“My body just didn’t respond tonight,” Sims said. “I am done at 140 pounds. I just did not feel right from the opening bell. I am going to 147 pounds.”

 

In the sixth round, Chinea took control and was the busier fighter against a fading Sims. While both fighters exchanged numerous punches in the seventh and closed the fight out with a flurry of activity, Sims clearly struggled at 140 pounds.

 

In the wild final round, the pair combined for 291 punches and 85 connects, but Chinea’s surge earned him the majority decision win.

 

In the second fight of the night, Glenn Dezurn (9-0-1, 6 KOs) stepped up to the 121-pound super bantamweight division to go the distance with ShoBox veteran Adam Lopez (16-1-2, 8 KOs) in an action-packed eight-round slugfest that ended in a split draw. Both fighters were visibly disappointed by the judge’s decision.

 

“I thought I did enough to win,” said the still-undefeated Dezurn, who spars with his wife, women’s pro fighter Franchon Crews. “I’m just fortunate for this opportunity and hope [Lopez] and I can come back strong and fight again someday.”

 

The first round was a round of give-and-take where both Dezurn and Lopez landed and sustained an impressive amount of body punches. It was Lopez who originally appeared more subdued, foregoing the counterpunch as Dezurn worked the jab.

 

By the fifth round it was clear Dezurn was losing steam when Lopez began to break him down and force him against the ropes. Lopez went on to dominate the sixth and seventh rounds, when Dezurn, clearly out-fought, looked tired and began to lean over.

 

“After the first round, I dominated the action,” said Lopez, who has now fought on ShoBox a record-tying six times. Maybe [Dezurn] won the seventh, but I whipped him. I should have won the fight, this was a redemption for me. Once I got used to his speed, I feel I won rounds six to two. The whole fight, his back was against the ropes and I beat up his body.”

 

Trained by the famed Coach Barry Hunter, the still-undefeated Dezurn made a valiant comeback in the final round, where he came back to life.

 

“I thought it was fair,” Hunter said. “We came on in the middle rounds, and Glenn won the seventh and eighth to get us the draw. It all came down to the stretch and I thought we did enough to win those rounds.”

 

In the opening bout of the telecast, former knockdown-of-the-year candidate Joshua Greer Jr. (14-1-1, 6 KOs) stopped Leroy Davila (5-2, 3 KOs) after five rounds, when Davila’s corner called the fight at the conclusion of the fifth.

 

“The game plan was to box and hit hard, and that’s what I did,” said Greer, who earned a memorable knockout against James Gordon Smith in his last ShoBox appearance. “I had to put on a good show. I will fight whoever has the belts. I want to fight for a world title.”

 

The 23-year old Greer landed a number of aggressive combinations that had Davila against the ropes from the onset. While Davila appeared to come alive in the second round, the 29-year old southpaw became stationary and had trouble recovering from a shot to the face that had him bleeding out of the left side of his nose and struggling for the second half of the fourth and the fifth. His corner called the fight just after the bell sounded, ending the fifth round.

 

The event was co-promoted by GH3 Promotions and Holden Productions.

 

Friday’s quadrupleheader will replay on Monday, July 17 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME EXTREME and will be available on SHOWTIME on DEMAND® and SHOWTIME ANYTIME®.

 

Barry Tompkins called the ShoBox action from ringside with Steve Farhood and former world champion Raul Marquez serving as expert analysts. The executive producer was Gordon Hall with Rich Gaughan producing and Rick Phillips directing.

LOS ANGELES (July 14, 2017) – In a heart and soul performance, rugged warrior Rene “Gemelo” Alvarado (25-8, 17 KOs) from Managua, Nicaragua triumphed over Maracaibo, Venezuela’s Roger “The Kid” Gutierrez (15-1-1, 11 KOs) with a technical knockout victory that handed Gutierrez his first career loss as the main event on Boxeo Estelar. The fighters left nothing behind on the mat, Alvarado giving Gutierrez a hard time and a bloody right eye. Gutierrez’s corner waved the fight off at 1:34 in the seventh round of the super featherweight bout.
“This was a very meaningful win for me, and it is accomplishment that we trained very hard for,” said Rene Alvarado. “This puts me back on track to fight for a title. My eyes are looking to any of the winners of tomorrow’s Berchelt versus Miura bouts – I want any of the winning super featherweights next.”
Special VIP guests of the night included NABO Super Featherweight Champion Alberto Machado, NABA Super Featherweight Champion Carlos “The Solution” Morales, Christian “Chimpa” Gonzalez, Abraham “El Chamaco” Lopez, and David Mijares.
In the co-main event slugfest, South Central Los Angeles featherweight Edgar “Kid Neza” Valerio (11-0, 6 KOs) went toe to toe with Torreon, Mexico’s Jairo Hernandez (18-12, 9 KOs) in a scheduled 8-round featherweight bout. The fighters went back and forth with their aggression, Valerio bringing Hernandez to the floor in the first round and Valerio tasting the mat in the second. The back and forth action had the crowd on their feet, however the judges declared Valerio the victor with scores of 80-71, 80-71 and 79-72.
“I couldn’t let him dictate the pace, I had to stand my ground,” said Edgar Valerio. “Even though I tasted the mat, I am proud of my performance. This was my first full eight round fight, and I know what I need to go back and improve. He’s gone through some tough competition, and some of the guys he’s fought are now fighting for titles.”
Moved up to be the televised opener for the Estrella TV Boxeo Estelar telecast, WBC Youth Silver Flyweight Champion Joshua “The Professor” Franco (12-0, 6 KOs) of San Antonio, Texas improved his record in a six-round fight against Antonio “Tony” Rodriguez (8-16, 3 KOs) of Gomez Palacio, Mexico. The battle lasted all six rounds, Franco putting in work to the body and stunning Rodriguez through various points in the fight. The judges all unanimously decided Franco was the victor with scores of 60-54.
“I didn’t know much about my opponent, but he was a solid fighter. He could hang in there with me no matter how hard I tried to work him down,” said Joshua Franco. “I’m going to take some time off, and go back home to Texas to rest. When I come back, I know I will have to defend my title.”
Huntington Park’s Cristobal Ortiz (2-0, 1 KO) finished his business early in a scheduled four round super lightweight bout against Ronald Rodriguez (1-6, 1 KO). Rodriguez made Ortiz hit the mat once, but Ortiz came back even harder. At the 1:46 mark into the second round with a spectacular right hook to the jaw, Rodriguez collapsed as the crowd jumped in jubilation, adding the first knockout victory to Ortiz’s record.
“I’ve only been a professional for about three months, so I feel like my job right now is to capitalize on the skills that I have now – and build on speed and explosiveness,” said Cristobal Ortiz. “I feel like I tend to rely on my strength sometimes. Right now I just want to make noise, and have people learn my name little by little.”
Opening up the fights at LA FIGHT CLUB and RING TV livestreamed portion, Oxnard, California’s Meiirim Nursultanov (3-0, 2 KO) knocked out his opponent at the 1:47 mark of the first round in an originally scheduled six-round super middleweight bout against Houma, Louisiana’s Lanny Dardar (5-8-2, 3 KOs).
“I feel great! The faster the fights go, the better. It literally took me a minute to figure him out so I could knock him out,” said Meiirim Nursultanov. “I feel good enough to jump back into the ring right now.”
Gutierrez vs. Alvarado was an eight-round super featherweight fight presented by Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by Tecate “Born BOLD”, and Casa Mexico Tequila.

MayWeather vs McGregor: Conferencia de Prensa en Nueva York

Jul 14, 2017 0

Brooklyn, Nueva York-BEREAVSION- Mientras algunos medios de comunicación y aficionados le llaman payasadas, teatro, show, y que aun  le han faltado al respeto al boxeo  profesional, Mayweather y McGregor hicieron su tercer parada, en esta ocasión fue en Barclays Center de Brooklyn Nueva York.

Ante mas de 13mil aficionados, Mayweather y McGregor hicieron su entrenada por la alfombra roja, en esta ocasión McGregor traía un abrigo blanco que resaltaba mucho en las imágenes y fotografias,  luciendo  así su grande tatuaje que lleva grabado en su pecho y un pantalón estilo piyamas.

La entrada de Mayweather fue como a él le gusta vestir, una gorra y su ropa de costumbre haciendo promoción a su marca (TMT),  en conferencia de prensa  hacia mención que no vestirá ropa de alguien mas para hacerle promoción, esa es la razón por la cual él mismo siempre vestirá, su propia marca ya mencionada, lo curioso de su entrada, es que llevaba consigo una bandera Irlandesa como capa en su espalda, la cual cuando llego hasta el escenario la arrojo al piso, esto provoco la ira de muchos aficionados irlandeses.

Una vez los dos en el escenario comenzaron, con insultos, podemos decir, que hicieron lo mismo que sucedió  en Los Angeles, California. donde fue la primer parada y en Canada donde fue la segunda parada, pues aquí en Nueva York no fue la acepción, después de que Mayweather arrogara la bandera al suelo, llamo uno de sus asistentes, el mismo que traía  la mochila en los Angeles, para sacar un cheque de 100 millones de dólares que aun no había cambiado, en  esta ocasión, de la misma mochila saco puños de billetes y los empezó arrojar en el escenario y en la cabeza del mismo McGregor, quizás insinuando que le sobra el dinero, hasta ahora nadie a confirmado si eran billetes reales.

Después de esta presentación se dirigieron   al cuarto de prensa donde  los medios de comunicación los estaban esperando para escuchar las reacciones de la presentación de la alfombra roja.

Cual fue tu reacción cuando cuando Mayweather arrojo la bandera al piso?

McGregor: Bueno en realidad es parte del juego es un payaso, y agosto 26 veremos quien es mejor, estoy preparado para los 12 pero en cuarto los voy noquear.

Porque arrojaste la Bandera al piso?

Mayweather: Porque es un racista, a nosotros a los afroamericanos nos dice, changos y eso es una falta de respeto, le faltado el respeto mi hija y mi esposa, y tu no debes de faltarle el respeto a nadie, sea Blanco, negro, o latino, latina y asiático, debemos de respetar a todos y creo que el racismo aun existe.

BereaVision Nueva York.

LA GRAN NOCHE UFC 213

LA GRAN NOCHE UFC 213

Las Vegas Nevada, UFC 213 Las Vegas empezo con drama en una noche donde se esperaba ver combate entre varias estrellas del mundo de la MMA. La pelea estelar que estaba programada para esta noche se cancelo tras la repente noticia 5 horas antes de la pelea que Amanda Nunes no iba pelear por razones medicas personales. Después de la pelea Dana WHite el presidente de La UFC dijo ” Nuestros Doctores dijeron que ella físicamente estaba llena de salud y podía pelear..ella dijo que no se sentia bien”. Su rival Valentia Shevchenko estaba muy decepcionada tras no poder participar en el evento de esta noche.La revancha entre estas dos guerreras se quedo en una pausa por el momento.

Para poder salvar el evento de la noche la pelea entre Yoel Romero y Robert Whitaker se propuso para la pelea estelar donde iban a pelear por el Campeonato Provisional de Peso Mediano ya que el Campeon actual Michael Bisping decidio esperar a defender su titulo hasta que regrese George St. Pierre al Octógono. El cubano Yoel controlo los primero dos asaltos pero en los últimos 3 se noto que se fatigo y Whitaker tomo la oportunidad y domino. Los Jueces tenían la pelea 48-48, 49-47 49-47 a favor del Australiano Robert Whitaker. Whitaker es el primero de su nación de haber logrado un titulo en la UFC.

En una pelea que trae mucha historia fue la de Fabricio Werdum vs Alister Overeem. En el tercer encuentro se iba definir quien iba salir como el mejor. El vencedor de seguro iba a pelear por el titulo contra el campeon Stipe Miocic. Alister Overeem controlo los primeros dos asaltos con varios Jabs y manteniendo la pelea parados. Werdum trataba de llevar la pelea al piso donde podría usar su Jiu Jitsu pero no pudo contra el Holandes. En el ultimo asalto al minuto 3 Werdum logro conectar con un gancho a la quijada de Overeem que parecia para KO, pero Werdum no tomo accion y dejo que Overeem se recuperaba. Gano Overeem con decisión dividida y ahora espera pelear por el titulo Super Pesado.

Una noche donde el publico esperaba ver la Estrella Femenina de la UFC no se realizo. UFC 213 fue lleno de peleas con peleadores no muy bien conocidos y ya viejos en el deporte. Dana WHite mismo dijo que hubo peleas donde piensa que  se debería de retirar del deporte el peleador y unos que no merecían pelear por el titulo. Lo Bueno que sigue una pelea muy esperada en UFC 214 con las estrellas de UFC en JONES vs CORMIER 2.

Nota: ITAI FUETES

Here is what the press conference participants had to say Wednesday from Gallagher’s Steakhouse in Manhattan:
OMAR FIGUEROA
“We know that Guerrero is a tough guy and it’s going to be a rough fight. We prepared really well to go 12-rounds and get the win.
“I love having my brother Brandon in camp and on this card with me. It gives me an opportunity to take my mind off of my fight and focus on Brandon for a bit. It really helps me cope with everything leading up to a big fight.
“Training camp was amazing. We did a lot of sparring with lefties so that my footwork is down. Other than that I was just grinding every day and trying to get better.
“I’m really happy to have the team that I have. Joel Diaz and I work really well together because we have the same mentality, but he can tell me when I need to take a step back.
“New York is one of the places that has held historic fights. Being on that same stage as great fighters from the past is amazing. It’s one of those things that makes you feel like you made it.
“I know how hard Robert Guerrero has worked to get to this point in his career. I want to prove that I can be in the big fights that Guerrero has already had. I’ve had a long time off but I can’t wait to get it on Saturday night.
“I feel like I have everything in my arsenal to make this a successful night. I’m looking to show all of the things I’ve been working with Joel Diaz on and give the fans a great fight to remember.”
ROBERT GUERRERO
“I’m expecting Omar to come to fight. He’s undefeated with a great record so if it’s not broken, I don’t expect him to change his style.
“You have to prepare for everything for a guy as awkward as Omar. I’m going to have to make adjustments in the ring. If I can stay focused I know I can get the victory.
“I’ve made a lot of improvements since the last time people saw me. There’s way too much talent in this division for me to just come forward and press. I’m in great shape and I’m ready to work behind my jab do everything I need to do to be successful in the ring.
“I’m blessed to be here and have this tremendous opportunity in the main event again on FOX and FOX Deportes. It’s been a while since I’ve been in the ring but I never stopped working in the gym.
“I’ve said before that I had to go to the drawing board but this time we erased everything and rewrote it. This layoff has really helped me get in great shape and I’m really excited to get in the ring. I’m ready to turn the page to the next chapter of my career and that starts with this fight.
“It’s an honor to be able to work with my dad every day. It’s an incredible blessing for me to have such a loyal team. My father treats me like a man just like he always has. He makes me a better fighter every time out. He knows me like the back of his hand.”
MARCUS BROWNE
“I’m ready to roll. I’m ready let my hands go and get in the ring and rumble on Saturday night. This is going to be a great night of fights.
“This is a big fight for me. It’s a great fight against a very determined and experienced fighter. Seanie is a veteran in this sport but he’s still hungry. He has a lot to lose, as do I. We’re both going to put it on the line.
“I’m excited to be part of opening up this new venue. There are a lot of different cultures that come together in Long Island and it should make for a great crowd.
“I think the timing that my career has progressed has been great. I’ve been going step-by-step and I feel like I’m on a good path towards a world title.
“I’m very familiar with Seanie from sparring together but I know that he’s a veteran who’s going to have a great game plan. Training camp has me ready and I’m going to be prepared to make adjustments. I’m ready to lay it all out there.”
SEANIE MONAGHAN
“Training camp has been excellent. I’ve been sparring a lot of lefties and getting ready for this style matchup. This is probably the longest camp I’ve ever had and I feel great. I’m on weight right now and ready for this fight. This is the best shape I’ve ever been in.
“It’s very inspiring to be looking at the place that you’ll be fighting while you’re training. I do my hardest workout on the track right across the street from the Coliseum. It helps me dig deep while I’m suffering.
“This is going to be an interesting matchup. Marcus and I are pretty much opposites in the ring. I’m a righty and he’s a lefty. He’s a fast-starter and I’m a strong finisher. It’s my job to turn it into a battle of wills.
“I’m fully-charged physically and locked and loaded mentally heading into Saturday night. This is the caliber of opponent I’ve been looking to face for a while and I’ll be ready when the bell rings.
“This is my 29th time getting into the professional ring so I’m not concerned about the emotions that come with fighting at home. Any kind of energy that I feel, I’m going to use it for fuel in the later rounds when I need it.”
ARTUR SZPILKA
“I want to show that my loss was an accident and that I’m ready to put on a great show for the fans.
“We will see how hard this fight will be. That is up to him, because I will be ready to put it all on the line and get this win. People want to see emotions in the ring and we will see if Kownacki is ready for me.
“I have to take this fight very seriously. I am in the best shape of my career. I can’t take for granted that I’m going to go in there and knock him out immediately.
“I waited a long time for this return. I broke my hand after the Deontay Wilder fight but now I am back and 100 percent ready for this fight.
“Adam is like I was before. He’s working his way up this sport and he’s very hungry. I respect Adam and I wish him the best, but not on Saturday night.”
ADAM KOWNACKI
“This is a big stage and a great challenge for me. Now it’s time for me to show that I’m ready for this. I’ve never ducked a challenge and I never will.
“All the hard work is done. I feel great after a really strong training camp and now the fun part comes Saturday night.
“I sparred with (top U.S. amateur) Cam Awesome, who is a good mover around the ring so he’s definitely helped prepare me for what Artur is going to bring.
“It means a lot to be in a fight between two Polish heavyweights. We’re two of the best Polish heavyweights in the world and only one of us can wear the crown.
“This is my coming out party. I’m going to make a statement on Saturday. I’ve been patiently waiting for this chance and now I’m going to prove that I belong.
“Artur and I definitely have different styles. I’m more of a puncher and he’s more of a mover. I worked a lot in training camp on cutting off the ring.”
BRANDON FIGUEROA
“I feel like I’ve improved a lot during this training camp. I feel very strong and confident heading into this fight. It’s really exciting to be on a card like this with my brother headlining.
“I’m just going to take my career step-by-step and take it one fight at a time. Hopefully if I keep working hard and performing I can get a title shot. I just want to take every fight that I can so that I can perform in front of the fans and give them a great show.
“I feel very prepared and very confident heading into this fight. This is definitely one of the best camps I’ve had. I fight a lot of heavy guys in Joel Diaz’s gym and it helped me get perfectly prepared for this fight.
“I love fighting on television so that I can give fans a good show. I’m always hungry for the win and now being in New York is an added piece of motivation.”
LOU DIBELLA, President of DiBella Entertainment
“On Saturday big-time boxing returns to Long Island. It’s been 31 years since a big boxing show on Long Island and that show was headlined by Mike Tyson. Saturday night is going to be a great night for boxing in the New York area.
“This show has three terrific fights coming to us on Saturday night. I love that this card has three fights where the outcome is up in the air and they’re all-action matchups.
“Artur and Adam are in something of a grudge match, with these two Polish heavyweights talking about this for over a year, and now it’s finally going to happen. This is an important heavyweight fight. The loser takes a big step back.
“Marcus Browne is a young lion rising his way up the ranks at light heavyweight. Seanie has been waiting a long time for an opportunity like this. The winner of this fight is right there for a world title. These guys have been friendly in the past, but they won’t be friends on Saturday night.
“The main event is definitely a crossroads fight to some extent. I have tremendous respect for both Omar and Robert. Omar is returning to the ring against one of the most experienced and battle-tested fighters out there in Guerrero.
“This is going to be a good night for Long Island and everyone who watches this in person or on FOX and FOX Deportes is going to be in for a great night of fighting.”

LOS ANGELES (July 12, 2017) Fighters from the July 14 LA FIGHT CLUB  card and July 15 HBO Boxing After Dark triple header led by Miguel “El Alacran” Berchelt (31-1, 28 KOs) and Takashi Miura (31-3-2, 24 KOs) today hosted a Los Angeles media workout at City of Angels Gym ahead of their respective fights.
On July 15 live from the “Fabulous” Forum, televised on HBO Boxing After Dark, Berchelt will take on Miura in a WBC Super Featherweight Championship main event. The triple header will also feature Panamanian super featherweight Jezreel “El Invisible” Corrales (21-1, 8 KOs) who will make his U.S. debut against Robinson “Robin Hood” Castellanos (24-12, 14 KOs) for Corrales’s WBA Super World title. Opening up the action-packed HBO telecast, current two-time WBC International Light Heavyweight Champion Joe Smith, Jr. (23-1, 19 KOs) will put his belt on the line against the Miami’s Sullivan Barrera (19-1, 14 KOs). On the RING TV live streamed portion of the card, Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta (30-1-2, 16 KOs) will run up against Martin “El Brochas” Honorio (33-10-1, 16 KOs), Ryan “Kingry” Garcia (9-0, 8 KOs) will go up against a TBA opponent, and Manny “Chato” Robles (12-0, 4 KOs) will step up his competition with Chihuahua, Mex.’s Juan “El Peñita” Jimenez (23-12, 16 KOs).
Below is what fighters on the Saturday, July 15 HBO Boxing After Dark triple header had to say at today’s workout:
MIGUEL “EL ALACRAN” BERCHELTCurrent WBC Super Featherweight Champion:
“I consider myself a world champion, and fighting Takashi Miura is a way to prove that I am the best in my class. Some of my advantages include my height, the fact that I haven’t been in many wars, and my youth.
“I have a youthful hunger that makes the difference between the two of us. It’s cool to know that I am facing the best in my division – I was able to get through Francisco Vargas, so I know that I can take on Miura.
“Our plan is simple: win round by round. I will show the crowd that not only can I box, but that I can keep my energy through the rounds. Fighting with intelligence is key-you can be in a war but if you’re not smart with how you land your punches it won’t benefit you or help you win.
“Overall, I am excited to be able to fight again in Los Angeles with my fellow  paisanos (countrymen).”
TAKASHI MIURA, Former WBC Super Featherweight World Champion:
“Training camp went extremely well, and I am pleased with how everything is going. I am getting used to the environment and time difference in LA, but should be fully ready to go come fight week.
“After my last loss, I became depressed for a couple of months. I thought I wouldn’t be able to come back to the level that I once was. However, boxing is everything to me, and I couldn’t just walk away.
“I have more heart than Berchelt. I want this more than I want anything. I am expecting a war because I know he won’t want to give up his belt that easy. But I want it back. If there’s a possibility to unify the titles, I will, if the opportunity is there. Our division is known for a lot of wars.”
JEZREEL “EL INVISIBLE” CORRALES, Current WBA Super World Super Featherweight Champion:
“I’ve always been confident in my training. They call me ‘El Invisible’ because you can’t see me in the ring when I’m moving.

“I’m very happy to be making my U.S. debut and fighting with Golden Boy Promotions.”

 
ROBINSON “ROBIN HOOD” CASTELLANOS, Super Featherweight Contender:
“We had a great training camp, and we did everything we could to put together the best fight possible. I don’t know which way the fight will go, however what I can tell you is that the only thing on my mind is winning.”
JOE SMITH, JR., Current WBC International Light Heavyweight Champion:
“Since my last fight, everyone recognizes me more. I’ve been working on continuing my journey towards becoming a world champion.
“In my fight with Barrera, we’re just all going to have to see what Saturday brings.”
 
SULLIVAN BARRERA, Current USNBC Light Heavyweight Champion:
“This fight is special because it is the first time my father will see me fight professionally. Joe Smith, Jr. is very good; he has power, but I have power too. I think I have a lot more experience than him, and I’m his biggest challenge yet.”
MERCITO “NO MERCY” GESTA, Lightweight Contender:
“I’m always excited for every fight to get back in the ring, especially now that I’m fighting at the ‘Fabulous’ Forum for the first time. I’ve been working a lot on my sparring, and I’ve learned a lot going in to this fight. I’m ready.”
RYAN “KINGRY” GARCIA, Lightweight Prospect:
“I’ve been focusing on staying consistent during my training camp, which was five weeks. I’ve been working with my strength and conditioning coach a lot. I know my opponent is a come-forward fighter, and we will both put on a great show on July 15 at the Forum.”
On Friday, July 14 at LA FIGHT CLUB at the Belasco Theater, Venezuela’s Roger “The Kid” Gutierrez (14-0-1, 11 KOs) will face Nicaraguan warrior Rene “Gemelo” Alvarado (24-8, 16 KOs) in an eight-round super featherweight bout.  As the co-main event, Edgar “Kid Neza” Valerio will up the ante with Torreon, Mex.’s Jairo Hernandez(18-11, 9 KOs) in an eight-round featherweight bout. Opening up the Boxeo Estelar telecast on Estrella TV, Panama’s Jaime “Jaimito” Arboleda (10-0, 8 KOs) will take on Philly’s Recky Dulay (9-2, 6 KOs) for a six-round super featherweight contest.
Below is what the July 14 LA FIGHT CLUB fighters had to say at today’s workout:
ROGER “THE KID” GUTIERREZ, Super Featherweight Contender:
“I get to represent my people of Venezuela in this fight. This is my first professional fight in the U.S., and I’m excited to be able to do that against someone like Alvarado who has fought for titles and has proven to be a skillful fighter. We work on everything in camp, so I feel prepared to make my U.S debut.”
RENE “GEMELO” ALVARADOSuper Featherweight Contender:
“I have a lot to gain if I win in this fight. I have to make my upward climb back to the top, and this fight is a step in that direction. I am by no means expecting an easy fight – we both want this.”
EDGAR “KID NEZA” VALERIO, Featherweight Prospect:
“Right now, I feel like I’ve been getting better at being patient and calm in the ring. Boxing isn’t a game and taking punches isn’t easy, but I feel I’ve improved on keeping my composure.”
JAIME “JAIMITO” ARBOLEDASuper Featherweight Prospect:
“I have so much pride in being able to represent Panama. I will be going up against a Filipino fighter. He is fast, but we have prepared well to take him on and be able to box him. I feel good, and I am excited to fight in Los Angeles and give a good show.”
