AMLO rechaza intervención de Trump por catalogar a cárteles mexicanos como terroristas

Nov 27, 2019

(CDMX). Tras la declaración del presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump sobre catalogar a los cárteles mexicanos como terroristas, Andrés Manuel López Obrador únicamente rechazó la intervención.

Señaló que respalda la cooperación, pero rechaza el intervencionismo; además consideró que por ser víspera del “Día de Acción de Gracias” en el país vecino, no es buen momento para tocar el tema.

“No es un buen día para la confrontación política, mañana es el Dia de Gracia, desearles felicidad”.

“No quiero polemizar este día y mañana, solo decir, cooperación sí, intervencionismo no”.

Informó que el secretario de Relaciones Exteriores, Marcelo Ebrard, tiene instrucciones para darle seguimiento al asunto y en su momento, será él quien dé a conocer los detalles.

“Y para que no se vaya a decir que no quise tratar el tema les digo dos cosas: primero que el secretario de Relaciones Exteriores, Marcelo Ebrard, tiene instrucciones de atender este asunto y seguramente les va a informar cuando el lo considere”.

INDIO, CALIF. (Nov. 23, 2019): Rene “Gemelo” Alvarado (32-8, 20 KOs) of Managua, Nicaragua successfully defeated Andrew “El Chango” Cancio (21-5-2, 16 KOs) of Blythe, California via knockout at the end of the seventh round of a 12-round rematch for the WBA Super Featherweight World Title. The fight was stopped after the referee deemed Cancio’s cut to be too severe to continue. The event took place on Saturday, Nov. 23, 2019 at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. and was streamed live DAZN.  “It’s a feeling very hard to describe,” said Rene Alvarado. “It’s something I’ve wanted ever since I started my career, and now Nicaragua has another world champion, twin brothers. We were looking for new opportunities, not necessarily to avenge a loss, but opportunities to become a world champion. And that’s what we did. Cancio’s going to come back from this but we fought our hearts out and it was a tough fight.”
“It was a plan to start dominating from the very beginning of the fight. That was the plan, by Sergio Gonzalez my trainer and my corner including my brother, who’s also a world champion with me now.”

“My objective was to make sure that I become a world champion on this important day, the 23rd of November, when 45 years ago, Alexis Argüello became a world champion for the first time [and Nicaragua’s first world champion]. And now for the first time, we have two world champions who are twin brothers from Nicaragua. That was the objective.” “We felt great throughout camp, and I just couldn’t get off,” said Andrew Cancio. “I fought a hell of a fight tonight. I was two steps behind him. There’s nothing I can say. He fought his fight tonight and he got his revenge in the rematch. Congratulations to him. He did exactly what I did. He had to come from behind to come over here and become a world champion. He fought a hell of a fight and there’s nothing I can say besides congratulate him and enjoy this.I know how it feels. Now we just have to go back to the drawing board, and I have to talk it over with my team. Tonight, wasn’t my night but it is what it is. I have to take this loss as a champion and just go back home and regroup and see what we have to do.”
“I kept trying, but tonight was his night. He got off very well. I got hit with too many shots. I had a great camp; there’s no excuses about it, and the better man won tonight. It’s well-deserved; he fought a tremendous fight. I’ve been here before. It is what it is. It’s part of the game.” In the co-main event, Xu Can (18-2, 3 KOs) of Kumming, China defeated Manny Robles (18-1, 8 KOs) of Los Angeles, California via unanimous decision to successfully defend his WBA Featherweight World Title. Can won with scores of 120-108, 119-109 and 118-110. “We trained very hard in the camp, three months for the fight,” said Xu Can “.We wanted to show everybody in the world. 

Who do you want next? “Josh [Harrington]! You coming out? Now I’m here. You see I’m here, right? Let’s fight. Let’s unify.”

Where would you want the fight? “Anywhere. I can fight anywhere. I promise I will bring the belt back home to China.” Rashidi “Speedy” Ellis (22-0, 14 KOs) of Boston, Mass. beat Eddie “E-Boy” Gomez (23-4, 13 KOs) of  the Bronx, New York via unanimous decision in a 10-round fight for the WBA Continental Americas Welterweight Title. Ellis won with scores of 100-90, 99-91 and 99-91. “This was a good fight and a good test for me,” said Rashidi Ellis. “For me it wasn’t personal. They made it personal. It was because I knocked him out in the first round of our first right. I’d be mad too if that were me. Now I just want bigger fighters. I want to fight for a world title.” Victor “El Tornado” Morales Jr. (13-0, 7 KOs) of Vancouver, Wash. defeated Diuhl Olguin (14-13-3, 9 KOs) of Guadalajara, Mexico via unanimous decision in an eight-round featherweight bout. Morales won with three scores of 80-72. “I felt good, but it also felt like my pro debut in a way,” said Victor Morales. “Props to my opponent. He was tough and came to fight. I knew he would be the toughest fight of my pro career thus far. Once I got loose, comfortable and got his timing, I knew I had him.”
Alberto “Impacto” Melian (6-1, 4 KOs) of Buenos Aires, Argentina stopped Juan Kantun (21-9-3, 15 KOs) of Phoenix, Arizona via knockout in the second round of an eight-round super bantamweight battle.  “There was a moment I didn’t feel his punches and I felt strong,” said Alberto Melian.”That’s when I knew I had to step it up. I would like to face Joshua Franco and any other title holder, but I’ll leave that to Roberto Diaz and my promoter” Baishanbo Nasiyiwula (16-3-1, 6 KOs) of Urumqi, China defeated Saul Corral (30-15, 20 KOs) of Sonora, Mexico via unanimous decision in an eight-round welterweight fight. Nasiyiwula won with three scores of 80-72. “Before I got into the ring, I was nervous,” said Baishanbo Nasiyiwula.”It’s my first time on Golden Boy and DAZN. But I feel better now. My goal now is to be back in the WBA ranking and challenge for a world title.” Cancio vs. Alvarado II was a 12-round fight for the WBA Super Featherweight World Title presented by Golden Boy. The event was sponsored by Tecate, “THE OFFICIAL BEER OF BOXING,” and Hennessy “Never Stop. Never Settle.” The event took place Saturday, Nov. 23 at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. and was streamed live on DAZN.

It’s going to be an amazing fight and an amazing fight night. We might have the fight of the night with me and Ceja. There are a lot of hungry fighters looking to put on a show and I can’t wait. “I’m prepared to go the full 12 rounds, but I know my skills and I’m confident in my power in both hands. I’m aiming for a stoppage win. “It’s a dream come true to be fighting here at MGM Grand. I’m so thankful to my team and my family who have helped me get to this point here. I’m very proud to be entering that ring Saturday night. “Fighting in my backyard for my last fight was a big moment for me. My fans had been waiting for me to headline there for years. I’m really grateful and I was more than ready to take advantage of the opportunity. “My opponents think I’m a pretty boy and don’t know how to fight, but once I hit them with my power, they know what I’m made of. We’ll see how Ceja reacts on Saturday. “My brother (former world champion) Omar has told me to take advantage of my youth and this moment in front of me. He told me to take it all in and experience this beautiful event. I’m here to give the fans a great moment. It’s definitely a milestone in my career that I’ll never forget. “Julio Ceja is going to come forward to fight and make this a great fight. We both come forward, but I can also box and switch between lefty and righty. I can fight with any style for any fight that I’m in. “I feel like this is going to be a stoppage. My volume of punches and my power will be there. I throw over 100 punches around. I’m going to be active. I’m confident in my conditioning and ready to take this 12 rounds if I have to.” JULIO CEJA “I know that I have my team 100 percent behind me and I’m going to win this fight for them and everyone in Mexico. “I prepared very well for this fight. I did not just come to fight. I came to win. That’s what’s going to happen on Saturday. We’re going to steal the show. “Experience is the most important factor in this fight. My experience combined with my preparation, all mixed together, will make this a great fight and a victory for me and my team. “The reason Brandon is a champion is because he’s a very good fighter. But just like he has power, I have power too. I have the power to deal with him and make this very exciting. “I had a very special and specific training camp for Figueroa’s style. He attacks, so we’re going to attack too. We’re going to be in front of him and fight. “This training camp has me prepared both mentally and physically to sustain an all-out assault for 12 rounds against a strong young fighter. “This is the most important fight of my career. I’m desperate for a win. Last time against Guillermo Rigondeaux, I believe they took the win away from me. I’m using this fight as a chance to catapult myself to the level where I belong.” LUIS NERY “I’m excited to be on this huge card headlined by Deontay Wilder vs. Luis Ortiz. I’ve had great preparation for this fight. I know that I am facing a strong opponent, but my intelligence and my ring IQ will help this fight end with me being victorious. “Me and Freddie Roach have put together a great game plan for Rodriguez. We’re very confident that we’re going to win this fight by knockout. “I trained very hard with Freddie Roach so that I could win in spectacular fashion. This has been a very good year and I want to end it with a bang and a knockout. “There are a lot of big names in the division, but first I have to win spectacularly this weekend. Then I will worry about that challenge and I’ll take on any of the big names and champions. “I have a hard fight in front of me. I don’t feel any pressure to compete against other champions and how they’ve done against Rodriguez. I’m going to win the way I know how to win. “My training camp has been so strong and I feel 100 percent perfect heading into Saturday night. I hope Rodriguez can say the same so that we can give the fans a great show.” LEDUAN BARTHELEMY “I want to thank my opponent or accepting the rematch. I’m here to win and I’m going to take the win home. “My tactics will be a little different for this fight. I prepared very hard and worked on some strategic improvements. I’m confident that I will win decisively this time. “I focused a lot on my physical training and strength and conditioning for this fight so that I’m 100 percent in that regard. My technical ability will always be with me. It’s in my DNA. So with those two things combined, I will come out victorious. “I want to show the world my caliber as a fighter. I’m ready to take the next step after this win and become a world champion. My true technical ability will be on display. “I’m very happy and excited to be fighting alongside a fellow Cuban in Luis Ortiz. He’s not just another great fighter but he’s also a good friend of mine who has always given me advice on how to become better.” EDUARDO RAMIREZ “I’m ready to put on a great rematch against Barthelemy. I’m excited to put on a good show and be on the winning side Saturday night. I’m going to show everyone what I trained for. “I prepared well and I’m 100 percent confident that I’m going to give a better fight than the first time. My training has put me in a position where I know I’ll be at my best. “For the first fight it was my first time fighting outside of Mexico and I was definitely a little bit nervous. I think the nerves did effect my performance. I wasn’t scared, but my mental game wasn’t perfect. “Since that first fight, I’ve had a lot of big fights in the U.S. and fighting Lee Selby for the title in the U.K. I’ve matured and I’m much more comfortable heading into this fight. “Barthelemy is a great rival. I don’t know what changes he’ll make, but it really doesn’t matter to me. There are key aspects to my game that I’m going to use to come out victorious.” VITO MIELNICKI JR. “I’m excited for this opportunity on a big stage. This is why I’m with PBC, to be a part of these events. I’m in the best shape of my life and ready to put on a show for the fans. “I’ve dreamt of fighting in Las Vegas my whole life, ever since I was a kid. Fighting on a stage like this under Deontay Wilder is amazing. I’m going to absorb the experience and put on a show Saturday. “I’ve been fighting my whole life so I’ve always balanced school work with boxing. Right now my focus is on Saturday and I’m ready to put on a show. “It’s been a great experience being here in Las Vegas. I’ve fought like an hour away from the strip a few times in the amateurs. But overall, the pro game is way different. In this kind of environment, it’s just been a great experience and I’m going to absorb it all. “I’ve had strong preparation in this training camp. I’m in the best shape of my life. I feel great mentally and physically, and I’m ready to fight on Saturday.” OMAR JUAREZ “I want to thank everyone for this opportunity. I’m physically and mentally in the best shape of my life. Come Saturday night, I’m looking to take that win. I’m a crowd pleasing fighter and I’m looking to give the fans a great show. “Just like any fighter, I come 100 percent prepared. I feel like mentally and physically this is the best I’ve ever been. I’m ready to get the job done. “This is my first six round fight and I know that my opponent is very durable, but I’m ready to get this victory on Saturday. “I’ve been training in San Antonio for a month before my fight. I was doing strength and conditioning in my hometown prior to that. We’ve been sparring everywhere and getting really good work. “I was sparring three times a week, training really hard, training twice a day. It was hard, but it’s awesome. I love it.”
