KAZAN (Rusia) – Con un gol de Héctor Moreno en el último minuto, México logró un empate 2-2 contra Portugal el domingo en el primer partido para ambos en la Copa FIFA Confederaciones ante 34.372 aficionados en el Kazan Arena.

Con el resultado el equipo de casa Rusia ( 3 puntos) que venció 2-0 a Nueva Zelanda el sábado, se ubica en el primer lugar del Grupo A.

Desde el punto de vista estadístico, el partido estuvo igualado, excepto que los mexicanos tuvieron una ventaja significativa en posesión (59% -41%).

El campeón de la Copa Oro de la CONCACAF parecía que podría sufrir un revés, sin embargo, hasta que Moreno anotó el empate en el primer minuto del tiempo adicional. Jonathan dos Santos ejecutó un tiro de esquina desde la izquierda que Moreno remató de cabeza.

Fue la segunda vez que México se recuperó de un déficit de un gol en el encuentro.

Portugal se adelantó 1-0 a los 34 minutos. Cristiano Ronaldo atrajo la atención de tres defensores mexicanos en el lado izquierdo del área, para que Ricardo Quaresma sin marca en el borde del área pequeña con la izquierda mandara el balón al fondo de la red después de esquivar fácilmente al portero Guillermo Ochoa.

Ocho minutos más tarde llegó el empate de México. Raúl Jiménez envió un centro desde la izquierda que no pudo ser controlado por el Raphael . El balón le cayó a Carlos Vela, quien se centró rápidamente para que Javier Hernández sacara un cabezazo desde seis metros que superó al guardameta Rui Patricio.

Gelson, que ingresó de cambio en la parte de complemento, ayudó a restaurar la ventaja de Portugal en el minuto 86 al penetrar por el lado derecho del área y sacar un pase que Héctor Herrera desvió con el pie, pero no pudo controlar. Cedric logró rematar de primera intención con la derecha para el 2-1.

México volverá a la acción el miércoles, 21 de junio contra Nueva Zelanda.

BROOKLYN (June 19, 2017) – Four-division world champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner and three-division world champion Mikey Garcia went face-to-face for the first time Monday before they battle in one of the premier matchups of the summer that headlines SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING Saturday, July 29 live on SHOWTIME. Broner vs. Garcia is presented by Premier Boxing Champions at Barclays Center, the home of BROOKLYN BOXING®.

Tickets can also be purchased at the American Express Box Office at Barclays Center. Group discounts are available by calling 844-BKLYN-GP.

 

The fighters spoke to media at Dream Hotel Downtown in Manhattan to discuss their 140-pound clash that will headline an exciting night of action later this summer.

 

Here is what the participants had to say Monday:

 

ADRIEN BRONER

 

“I want to thank everyone who showed up today. I’ve been in some crazy situations and I’m blessed to be here. To get a fight like this is huge. Boxing is going back to the old days where the best fight the best. Mikey is definitely one of the best out there today.

 

“This can take our careers to the next level. I’m taking this seriously. I’ve been training in Colorado Springs. The weight will not be a problem. This gives me a reason to make 140. I’m not paying a man to put hands on me.

 

“I’m training hard and I think this will be one of the best performances of my career. This will take me to the superstar level where I need to be. I heard Mikey is a big favorite – they aren’t giving me much of a chance. I hope no one puts their house against me on this fight, because it won’t work out well for you.

 

“This fight will definitely bring the best out of me, because Mikey isn’t a sloppy fighter, he isn’t an awkward fighter. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a Mexican, but he boxes like an African American. We’re going to have a nice fight and I can’t wait to put on a show.

 

“When you’ve got two athletic fighters that have skills, it can only bring the best out of each other. And the cream always comes to the top.

 

“I’m more focused this training camp. There are so many distractions in Cincinnati or D.C. There is nothing to do in Colorado but look at the mountains and box.

 

“It’s going to be a great fight. Robert Garcia is a great trainer for his little brother. We’re both undefeated at 140-pounds and under. Something has to break. I want everyone to tune in on July 29. You will see a real serious Adrien Broner in the ring. It might get ugly for Mikey on July 29.”

 

MIKEY GARCIA

 

“I’m very thankful for this opportunity. I can’t stress the importance of this fight enough. It’s the biggest fight that I could have. There are other names that are out there, but nothing made more sense than facing Adrien Broner.

 

“Adrien has accomplished a lot and when he’s at his best, he’s really great. That’s what I expect on July 29. I see that he’s taking this seriously by moving camp to Colorado. I expect him to bring the best out of me and give the fans the best fight possible.

 

“The fans here in New York have always treated me well and it’s a fan base that just really loves boxing. The fans are what make me a world champion. I owe it to them to perform to the best of my abilities. I’m going to come ready on July 29 so that this fight is remembered as one of the best of the year.

 

“I think he is motivated because it’s a big fight, one where he can try to get his career back on track and try to be a superstar like he has been in past big fights. He didn’t perform so well in his past fight against [Adrian] Granados and this is an opportunity for him to jump back and be a superstar again. And I think that’s what’s motivating him for this fight.

 

“The weight makes sense to me for this type of fight. 135-pounds is probably my best division, but I don’t think this will be much different. I’ll make weight a little more comfortably and still keep my speed and power.

 

“I’ll do whatever it takes to win this fight. I’m more of a boxer-puncher but if I need to press the fight and put pressure on, I’m going to be ready to do that.

 

“I know that we definitely have to be in the best shape possible. I am not going to take this lightly. I am not thinking it’s going to be an easy win for me. I think it’s going to be a tough fight. I believe he’s going to be ready 100% and that’s going to make it a tough fight for me but overall I think I’m the better fighter, better boxer and I’ll have enough tools to bring in the ring with me.

 

“Adrien is going to come to beat me and I’m coming 100 percent to beat him. The fans will be the winner on fight night, but my hand will be raised.”

 

MIKE STAFFORD, Broner’s Trainer

 

“These are two really talented fighters and they’re going to put on a big show. We know Mikey is going to be prepared so we are going to do everything we can to be ready.

 

“Being in Colorado for training is like home for me and Adrien. This is what we’ve done since he was 18-years-old. Expect the same thing as every time before when he comes focused and prepared.

 

“Adrien is going to win and win real big. It’s going to be a tough fight, but we’ll be victorious when that final bell rings.”

 

ROBERT GARCIA, Garcia’s Brother & Trainer

 

“Every time Mikey and I come to New York we get nothing but love. We know Adrien is very talented and that’s why Mikey said yes to this fight. It took less than 30 seconds for him to agree.

 

“Mikey wants nothing else but big fights and we have one here. Expect a hell of a fight on July 29. I know we’re both going to be in great shape on fight night.”

 

LOU DIBELLA, President of DiBella Entertainment

 

“I love this fight. This is why we do this job. We want to make sensational fights like this for the fans to enjoy.

 

“Adrien Broner has spent a lot of time at the top of the sport while Mikey Garcia has made his way back to that top tier emphatically since returning last year.

 

“Mikey has insane amounts of talent. He’s a tremendous ambassador for the sport and he can do everything in the ring.

 

“Adrien Broner is a star. He’s ‘The Problem’ and sometimes he’s his own biggest problem. He’s an entertainer. People hate him but they pay to see him. He gets a lot of love and he gets a lot of hate. That’s worked for a lot of guys in this sport over the years. People care about him.”

 

STEPHEN ESPINOZA, Executive VP & GM, SHOWTIME Sports

 

“The bar has been set so high when you look at this year in boxing. It’s a high bar to get a main event at Barclays Center. The standard is very high and this fight certainly satisfies it. Two of boxing’s brightest young stars, both under 30 years old matching up against each other.

 

“This is the 19th live boxing event on SHOWTIME this year. Three world title unification, three world title rematches and six times where a top five fighter has fought another top five fighter in the division. We’re proud to bring you these two fighters on SHOWTIME. I give the fighters all the credit in the world for taking this fight. These guys are ready for big fights and they are proving it.”

 

BRETT YORMARK, CEO, Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment

 

“On July 29, Barclays Center will host its fourth major card of 2017. There is a great heritage of boxing in New York and I’m proud that Barclays Center is the number one boxing venue in the country. It has become a destination for the sport’s best talent, with Adrien and Mikey being two prime examples of that.

 

“I’m looking forward to one of the year’s most talked about fights. Adrien won a world title at Barclays Center and Mikey made his comeback there just last year. July 29 will be a special night not just for Brooklyn boxing, but for all boxing fans.

 

“Fights fans everywhere have already circled July 29 on their calendars and I look forward to seeing everyone next month.”

2017 USL Regular Season

H-E-B Park – Edinburg, Texas

www.lagalaxy.com/2 

 

LOS ANGELES (Saturday, June 17, 2017) – LA Galaxy II (3-8-2, 11 points) snapped a three-game losing streak with a 1-0 victory over RGVFC (5-4-3, 17 points) on Saturday night at H-E-B Park in Edinburg, Texas. 16-year-old LA Galaxy Academy member Jonah Estrada bagged the team’s game-winner with his first ever goal for Los Dos, while goalkeeper Eric Lopez recorded his first USL shutout.

 

Galaxy II applied pressure from the opening whistle, with Alejandro Covarrubias leading the first-half charge offensively. Covarrubias forced good saves from RGVFC goalkeeper Calle Brown early, from a number of dangerous long-range efforts. Los Dos peppered the Rio Grande goal throughout the night, leaving Brown with eight saves at final whistle.

 

Galaxy II got the break they needed in the 70th minute, when poor control of the ball from RGVFC’s backline saw a bad pass fall to the feet of Justin Dhillon. An open Dhillon played a pressing Jonah Estrada through to the top of the box. Estrada took one touch and buried the shot right from the top center of the box, giving Galaxy just what it needed to grab all three points.

 

The team had given up a 90th minute a week earlier, but Los Dos closed the match off after a few final minutes of pressure from RGVFC in extra-time. The win is a part of a recent string of success for LA on the road; the team is now 2-1-1 in its last four away matches.

 

In just his fourth start, Lopez earned his first professional shutout and Los Dos’ first away shutout of the season. The 18-year-old was signed by LA Galaxy II following the 2014 USL season, at the age of 15. His signing made him the youngest player to ever sign a contract in USL and the second-ever LA Galaxy Academy player to sign a professional contract with Los Dos.

LA – Jonah Estrada 70’ (Assisted by Justin Dhillon)

Chapter two of Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev vs. Andre “S.O.G.” Ward drama ended in another controversial loss for Kovalev. The referee waived off Kovalev after he struggled to recover from several consecutive low blows from Ward that the official failed to call. Sergey remained on his feet throughout the exchange but nevertheless the referee called a halt to the action at 2:29 of the eighth round.
The first round began with both fighters feeling each other out. Kovalev landed several hard shots and Ward continued to hold and attempt to work the inside. Ward landed a low blow in the second and received a warning from the referee. Kovalev, however, quickly recovered with a slew of combinations. The next several rounds were so close scorecards varied widely. After several low blows that the referee failed to call against Ward the fight was stopped.

A frustrated Kovalev was brief in his remarks saying only, “He hit with four low blows. The ref didn’t call them. I felt I could have continued. This is bullshit.”
Guillermo “El Chacal” Rigondeaux (18-0, 12 KOs) remains undefeated as he knocked Moises “Chucky” Flores (25-1, 17 KOs) flat on the canvas at 2:59 of round one. Many believed the blow was late but the punch was declared legal and Rigondeaux was declared the winner and retains his WBA Super World super bantamweight title.
“The Mexican was a brave kid,” said Rigondeaux. “I commend him for getting in the ring with me. He has more guts than a lot of these other guys. We both threw combinations at the same time at the end of the first round. But mine was quicker and more accurate. It was only a matter of time. I fight to give the best performance to the public and all the fans. I am making everyone disappear at 122. I am always available. Tell me who is next. I want all of them, and will take them out one by one. I hope the whole world sees what it is like to get in the ring with me. I am tired of the press and everyone saying I am boring. You see what happens when someone brings the fight to me.”
Flores, who believed the punch was after the bell replied, “It’s not fair. It’s clear that the bell rang. He didn’t throw a punch the whole round. I was winning the round and he waited for after the bell to throw punch when I dropped my hands down.”
Dmitry Bivol and Cedric Agnew

WBA Interim Light Heavyweight Champion Dmitry Bivol from Russia remains undefeated as he made quick work of Cedric “L.O.W.” Agnew. Despite being only 26 years old Bivol demonstrated why he is quickly making a name for himself in the red-hot light heavyweight division. From the first bell, Bivol torpedoed Agnew with a nasty set of combinations in the corner and sent the veteran into a head first knockdown. Agnew quickly recovered and the round continued but so did Bivol’s come-forward attack. The next two rounds were offensive clinics for Bivol as he continued to dominate Agnew. At 1:27 of the fourth round the referee had seen enough and declared Bivol the winner by TKO.

“I’m very glad the fight went this way,” said Biovl. “I found my ways that I practiced and I used them and you saw the results. I didn’t think he was going to work more as right-handed, as orthodox, but I was ready for everything so the fight ran smooth for me. I tried to open him up but for some reason, he didn’t want to go. He was close, he was very defensive and going back. But anyways I won the fight!”

Arias replied with, “Finally! Your just heard my name. Top 10 all around. Easy work.”
Hungary’s Zoltan Sera could not survive the first round against Junior “The Young God” Younan. The referee stopped the contest at 1:39 of round one.

The love that I have gotten since I arrived in Las Vegas has been tremendous. Thank you! And thank you to my promoter, Roc Nation Sports, for getting me to the greatest stage in boxing!”

It’s a good thing the ref stopped the fight. If there were 10 more seconds in the first round I would have had him. It would have been over! I’m pretty happy with my performance but I am always going to work to be better. Thank you to everyone for tuning in. I hope to be back in the ring next month. In the meantime, I plan on staying in shape and ready to fight. Thank you to Roc Nation Sports for the opportunity to be on this great card.”

Frisco, TX (June 18, 2017)–The Texas fans were treated to a big night of knockouts and rising star talents on Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN, following a hard-fought main event between WBC Fecarbox Super Lightweight Champion Fidel “The Atrisco Kid” Maldonado (24-3-1, 19 KOs) and Pablo “El Demoledor” Cesar Cano (30-6-1, 21 KOs).

It means a lot to have beat Cano, who has fought legends “Sugar” Shane Mosley and Erik “El Terrible” Morales,” said Maldonado. “This victory feels great, and although I don’t agree with the split decision, I am very happy with the outcome. Cano was as tough as I expected him to be-but I feel like I hurt with my body shots, because that is what made the difference.”

“I feel very blessed to be here and have won this title,” said Franco. “I thought I was going to catch my opponent in the second round after I dropped him in the first, but he held on and was tough.”
Keeping his perfect knockout streak intact, the highly skilled Vergil Ortiz, Jr., (6-0, 6 KOs) of Dallas unleashed his signature crushing blows to stop opponent Ricardo “Maniac” Fernandez (3-5-5) in the first round by way of technical knockout in the super lightweight TV opener.
“The victory feels great. My fan base here in Texas is really big, and I can tell the fans love when I fight here,” said Ortiz, Jr. “My opponent was tricky to figure out at first, but I went in composed and was able to clearly see what I needed to do to win.”
Rising prospect Alex Rincon (2-0, 2 KOs) from Dallas unloaded shot after shot to Austin local Zachary Briones (1-4), resulting in the referee ruling a technical knockout stoppage at 2:13 of the first round in this middleweight match scheduled for four rounds.
