May 13, 2018
Sergey Kovalev vs. Eleider Alvarez Set for 
Saturday, August 4 at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino 
Atlantic City
Televised Live on HBO World Championship Boxing®
Atlantic City, N.J. – May 12, 2018 – Two-time light heavyweight world champion Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (32-2-1, 28 KOs) puts his WBO Light Heavyweight World Title on the line against long-time WBC Light Heavyweight number one Contender Eleider “Storm” Alvarez (23-0, 11 KOs) at the Etess Arena in the brand new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City on Saturday, August 4, 2018. The event, promoted by Main Events and Krusher Promotions in association with Groupe Yvon Michel, will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. This will mark Kovalev’s 14th appearance on HBO® with Alvarez making his network debut.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 18.
Kovalev vs. Alvarez will be the first professional boxing event to take place at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, which opens on June 28. Kovalev, 35, of Chelyabinsk, Russia, will be fighting for the fourth time in Atlantic City, including his 2014 victory over future Hall of Famer Bernard Hopkins, which unified three of the four light heavyweight world titles. The only light heavyweight world title Kovalev has not had the chance to win belongs to WBC Light Heavyweight Champion Adonis “Superman” Stevenson. Kovalev and Stevenson have come close to getting in the ring several times, but “Superman” seems set on avoiding the hard-hitting Russian.
Undefeated Eleider Alvarez also knows a little something about being avoided by Stevenson. Alvarez defeated Isaac Chilemba in 2015 to secure the WBC mandatory position and the opportunity to face Adonis for his piece of the light heavyweight crown. Since then, Alvarez is 4-0 with notable wins over former world champions Jean Pascal and Lucian Bute. After more than two years since becoming the mandatory contender and almost one year since his last fight, Stevenson still has not agreed to fight Alvarez, so Eleider jumped at the opportunity to face Kovalev for the WBO World Title when the offer arrived.
Kovalev explained, “Alvarez has earned his title shot but Chickenson dodged him; just like he dodged me. I want to fight the best in my division. Alvarez took the fight with me without hesitation. I respect that and I am excited to face him in my return to Atlantic City.”
Egis Klimas, Sergey’s manager, added, “Eleider Alvarez is a great competitor. That is probably why Stevenson refused to fight him. Sergey will face anyone, any time, any place. If Adonis is too scared to take the fight, Sergey is happy to step up and fight Alvarez. He earned this opportunity.”
Main Events’ CEO and Kovalev’s promoter, Kathy Duva, said, “Entering our 40th year in this business, we are so excited to return to Atlantic City and honored to be the first fight in this beautiful new venue. Atlantic City, and the Etess Arena in particular, were home to so many amazing fights with Evander Holyfield, Michael Moorer, and the late, great Arturo Gatti, just to name a few. The Atlantic City fans have always come out to support Sergey and, fortuitously, this event will take place during the French-Canadian Construction Holiday when the Jersey Shore fills up with vacationers from Quebec. We’re going to have a great crowd on August 4th!”
According to Alvarez, “I am extremely happy. I said yes as soon as I had the offer! I waited for a long time to get a shot at a world title. I don’t want to hear about Adonis Stevenson anymore: I am focused on Sergey Kovalev! I am really motivated, it is a huge fight against a really high-class opponent. Kovalev is right now the best fighter of the division. I wanted to fight in a world championship bout to show my talent and now I finally have the opportunity. I know it is a really hard fight, but I will work hard to become world champion. This is my dream. I am a boxer who loves challenge and who performs at my best when I am challenged. I now have what I want. Kovalev is an all-around solid fighter, with a good jab, good technique and a hard puncher, but my trainer knows him well! I have no doubt, I will be the next WBO champion.”
Alvarez’s promoter, Yvon Michel, added, “The experience that Eleider Alvarez has now makes gives him solid chances to win that important clash! He is fighting with passion and adrenaline. He deserves his world title fight in front of his crowd. I am convinced that Eleider Alvarez has what it takes to beat Sergey Kovalev and to bring a third light heavyweight title back in Quebec!”
Eleider is managed by Stéphane Lépine, who explained, “The offer from Kathy Duva arrived and we were really happy. Fighting against Sergey Kovalev, an established and recognized name of the boxing world, on HBO, we couldn’t ask for any better opportunity! For me, it was a no brainer; we had to accept that amazing offer. We were also too tired to wait for Adonis Stevenson.”
Marc Ramsay, Eleider’s trainer, has faced Kovalev before as the trainer for Jean Pascal. He said, “‘Eleider is an experienced fighter, he has fought in other opponent’s backyard, he also fought in front of huge home crowd. We were waiting for a title shot for so long, he is now very ready to perform. The objective for him when we started together in the pro ranks was to become world championship fight. That is a promise I made him when he arrived in Montreal from Colombia. I am really confident that Eleider have what it takes to become world champion.”
“Sergey Kovalev will face his toughest opponent in over a year in undefeated Eleider Alvarez when World Championship Boxing returns to Atlantic City,” said Peter Nelson, Executive Vice President, HBO Sports. “The boardwalk has been the site of many memorable moments throughout the years and we look forward to this light heavyweight title showdown on August 4.”
“We are thrilled to bring championship boxing to the Boardwalk and to host it at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City. This event will mark the first sporting event at Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena which is all new and a venue that our boxing fans will truly enjoy. Our world-class facility will be the ultimate location for events and entertainment”, stated Bernie Dillion, vice president of entertainment at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City.

Campeonato Verizon Indy Car

Mar 16, 2018

Campeonato Verizon Indy Car

Por Luis Sánchez

Sebastien Bourdais fue el ganador de la primera Carrera del campeonato en la cuidad de ST. Petersburg. Tras su espantoso accidente en Mayo del año pasado en las calificaciones para las 500 Millas de indianapolis, Bourdais demostró que todavía tiene mucho que dar a la serie Verizon.  Sebastien completo las 110 vueltas con tan solo 12 segundos adelante del segundo lugar Rahal Graham. En tercer lugar quedo el piloto americano Alexander Rossi.

La carrera fue espectacular pero no sin la controversia que normalmente suele pasar en cada carrera, a 4 vueltas del final de la competencia el piloto Max Chilton y su carro tuvieron problemas en la curva 8 donde se detuvo el auto, mala suerte para el Rookie piloto Robert Wickens que habiendo calificado en la primera posición y llevando el liderazgo a escasas 4 vueltas para ganar la competencia tubo que esperar a que los oficiales de la carrera limpiaran la pista, dejando solamente dos vueltas para el final de la competencia.

Wickens fue sorprendido con la decisión para la ultima largada quedando solamente dos vueltas, ya que el auto guía de precaución no apago las luces indicando que todo estaba listo para el arranque y la bandera a cuadros. La reacción de Wickens fue hasta cierto punto tarde, ya que Rossi aprovecho la oportunidad queriendo rebasar al puntero, pero su llantas traseras se patinaron pegándole al auto de Wickens que fue lanzado en espiral perdiendo la oportunidad de coronarse campeón de St. Petersburg en 2018.

El cuatro veces campeón de la serie Champ Sevastien Bourdais aprovecho el incidente escurriéndose a la primera posición por las dos ultimas vueltas de la carrera y así ganar por segunda ves consecutiva el Firestone Grand Prix de St. Petersburg, marcando esta como su victoria numero 37.

Graham Rahal que empezó la competencia en último lugar pudo lograr terminar en la segunda posición. Rossi quedo tercero seguido de Hinchcliffe en cuarto, Hunter-Reay y Scot Dixon respectivamente.  Wickens que domino la competencia por 69 vueltas en cinco oportunidades, terminando en la posición 18 al final de la carrera.

Abril es un mes con mucha actividad ya que la siguiente competencia será el Phoenix Grand Prix en Arizona el próximo 7 de Abril, donde veremos duelos interesantes entre todos los pilotos de la serie Verizon Indy Car.  Después la gema del campeonato, el Toyota Grand Prix de Long Beach, en Abril 15, que la mayoría de los aficionados consideran esta carrera como el Monte Carlo de la Indy. Terminando el mes en la fecha Abril 22, con el Honda Indy Grand Prix de Alabama.

Estaremos pendientes de los acontecimientos de la serie Verizon Indycar series, para informarles los últimos acontecimientos.  Stay tune!

Spaniard out to make it five wins in a row at Grand Prix of The Americas.

Apr 19, 2017

Spaniard out to make it five wins in a row at Grand Prix of The Americas.

Marc Marquez understands that he faces a fierce fight in Austin, Texas this weekend if he wants to maintain his perfect MotoGP win record at the Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas.

The Spaniard won the first ever race at the Circuit of the Americas in 2013 from pole position as a rookie, then followed up further grid-topping qualifying days with victories in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

This season, however, the Repsol Honda rider has seen emerging star Maverick Viñales open up the campaign by winning the Grand Prix of Qatar and Gran Premio Motul de la República Argentina to build a healthy 37-point championship lead over him.

The 24-year-old Marquez claimed pole position last time out at the Autódromo Termas de Río Hondo to lift his spirits, even if he was forced to retire early in the race following a crash on lap three.

He told Relatos Solidarios, “Maverick’s debut has been unbelievable, the perfect debut. But it was something that everyone could predict a little, this is how it was in the preseason.

“We need a bit of stability because Viñales has won twice already and Valentino (Rossi) has been on the podium twice. Both Yamahas appear to be very competitive.

“If there’s a chance of winning in Austin, I will try. We must learn from the error in Argentina. I insist that a podium finish would be ideal to regain some stability.

“Texas is a circuit that I like. I like the layout of the track, as it has many different types of sections and corners and lots of elevation changes.”

Meanwhile Viñales knows all too well that he must not get complacent with the likes of Marquez, Rossi, Andrea Dovizioso, Scott Redding and Cal Crutchlow all poised to take advantage of any lapse in concentration.

The Yamaha rider explained, “We’re going to work hard. Texas is a really good track for me, I always feel really good [with the] changes of direction, fast corners and hard braking.”

Kawasaki’s Bryan Smith wins third consecutive Mile in 2016 at Springfield Mile I

May 29, 2016
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (May 29, 2016) – Bryan Smith proved his dominance at the Springfield Mile I on Sunday, taking home his third consecutive Mile victory of the 2016 AMA Pro Flat Track season. This Mile win didn’t come as easily, as the Michigan native had to fight to the finish with a pack of riders every lap, topping second place finisher No. 1 Jared Mees by a margin of 0.119 of a second at the conclusion of the race.

Smith, who pilots the third-generation No. 42 Crosley/Howerton Kawasaki Ninja 650, wrestled tirelessly with Harley-Davidson-mounted riders, Mees, eventual third place finisher No. 6 Brad Baker and No. 2 Kenny Coolbeth, Jr. and was officially scored with leading 16 of the 25-lap Main Event. The win was also Smith’s third consecutive Springfield Mile victory, having won both of last year’s contests at the historic venue.

“It feels pretty awesome,” Smith said. “To have three Miles back-to-back and win them all. I don’t care what kind of track it is, it’s awesome. But to win the Miles that I love, obviously to have three in a row at a historic venue like Springfield, is great. There’s not just one thing that was going through my mind through the last lap. There was a million thoughts of what to do, what not to do, go fast, not too fast, spin the tires, just a million thoughts. I was able to get just enough of a draft off of turn four in that last lap and just barely squeak by Jared.”

Three-time and reigning Grand National Champion Mees expressed his desire to win the coming races over the “Mile Specialist” but shared his appreciation for the bar-to-bar racing that went down during Sunday’s race.

“It’s definitely getting old finishing second on the Miles to the same guy,” Mees said. “But hats off to those guys. They’re working hard and that thing is fast. It’s hard to get it before the finish line but the team is working really hard and we’re trying to find more and more power and reliability. I felt like we had a little bit more than last year but you know, it is Mile racing at its best and a close finish is normal at the Springfield Mile.”

Baker officially led three laps during the Main by using the all-important draft to push past his competitors. The Washington native took home the final spot on the podium.

“It feels really good,” Baker said. “I’ve had the speed the last three races or so but it feels good to be here on the podium. It was a really fun race and the end of the race was an all-out battle.”

Baker’s Factory Harley-Davidson teammate No. 67 Davis Fisher had a lot to prove with the competition debut of the next generation Harley-Davidson XG750R, and the rising star did not disappoint. Fisher experienced a mechanical issue in his Heat race but earned his Main Event starting spot thanks to a photo finish in his Semi race for the final transfer position. After picking off riders throughout the Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines Main Event, Fisher earned the new machine its first Top 10 result with his eighth place finish.

“Davis is doing a great job of developing the new bike and moving forward with it but we know the XR is proven and capable of winning,” Baker continued. “Now we know the XG is capable of getting into the top 10 and now we have to see if it is capable of getting on the podium and winning. Until it gets to that point, I’m going to keep on the old, faithful XR750 that’s been around for 44 years and then eventually going to be jumping onto that thing when it’s ready. I want that bike to get better because if it gets better than the XR that means I’ll have a weapon to try to get on the top spot or the box on these Miles instead of always nipping at the heels of the Kawasaki.”

Smith now leads the Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines point standings by 16 points over No. 69 Sammy Halbert, 110-94.

In the GNC2 class, No. 94B Ryan Wells was unrelenting as he duked it out for his first Mile win of the 2016 season with second place finisher No. 99J Kevin Stollings and third place No. 23FJeffery Lowery.

“It’s my first Mile (win) and it’s awesome,” Wells said. “Especially at the Springfield Mile, the biggest Mile you could win, and for it to be a typical Springfield Mile ending, winning by half of a tire, it’s cool. I would have liked to win by more but it’s awesome. I wish I wouldn’t have seen a red flag with two laps to go but it all worked out and I’m happy. I knew I had a fast bike but I was drafting Stollings earlier in the race, and the kid’s real small and lightweight, so I knew if anybody could get by me before the line it would be him. I came out of turn four and I heard somebody; I peeked down underneath my handlebars and I saw the red bike and I knew it was him. I got as small as I could and was watching our front wheels go across the line and I was pretty pumped about it.”

Wells now leads the GNC2 point standings by 18 points over No. 14A Dalton Gauthier, 103-85.

Up next, 20 of the top AMA Pro Flat Track riders head to ESPN’s Summer X Games in Austin, Texas for the Harley-Davidson Flat-Track race on Thursday, June 2 at Circuit of The Americas.
