At T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Canelo Alvarez and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin face off at 
post-press conference after September 16 showdown announcement)
 
LOS ANGELES (May 6, 2017) – No sooner did boxing’s biggest star Canelo Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) dispatch Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. (50-3-1, 32 KOs) in a dominant shutout victory over 12 rounds at the sold-out T-Mobile Arena on presented live on HBO Pay-Per-View, than the middleweight superstar announced that boxing’s biggest fight – a showdown with Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) – would take place on Mexican Independence Day weekend on September 16. Canelo beat Chavez, Jr. from pillar to post, earning a unanimous decision with all three judges scoring the fight 120-108.

“Tonight, I showed I could move, I could box, I showed as a fighter I can do all things,” Canelo said. “I thought I was going to showcase myself as a fighter that could throw punches, but he just wouldn’t do it. I’ve shown I can do lots of things in the ring, anything a fighter brings-I’ve shown I can showcase myself. I wanted to try something new, I never sit down in sparring and I didn’t want to sit here. GGG-you are next, my friend. The fight is done. I’ve never feared anyone, since I was 16, fighting as a professional. When I was born, fear was gone. I never got my share of fear. I’m very happy, and the rivalry is going to show my skills even more. I’ve had difficult fights, and that will no doubt be a tough fight. But, I always say, Canelo Alvarez is the best because I fight the best.”
“I feel very excited; in September, it will be a different style-a big drama show,” said Golovkin. “I’m ready. Tonight, first congrats to Canelo and his team. Right now, I think everyone is excited for September. Canelo looked very good tonight, and 100 percent he is the biggest challenge of my career. Good luck to Canelo in September.”
Celebrities in attendance for the sell out crowd of 20,510 at T-Mobile Arena for Canelo vs. Chavez, Jr. included Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, Bernard Hopkins, Golden Boy Promotions business partner and future Hall of Famer, Julio Cesar Chavez, Sr., Mexican boxing legend and father to Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr., former professional boxer and world champion Evander Holyfield, former three-division world champion Marco Antonio “Baby-faced Assasin” Barrera, former four-division world champion Erik “El Terrible” Morales, four-division world champion Juan Manuel “Dinamita” Marquez, WBC Diamond, WBA and Ring Magazine Lightweight World Champion Jorge “El Niño De Oro” Linares, former WBC Super Featherweight World Champion Francisco “El Bandido” Vargas, Middleweight world champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, two-division world champion Andre Ward,  UFC fighters Nate and Nick Diaz, comedian Dave Chapelle, musician and actor Ice Cube, Mexican singer, songwriter and actor Pepe Aguilar, EXTRA television host Mario Lopez, Mexican actor and model Gabriel Soto, Mexican regional artist Regulo Caro, Mexican regional artist Gerardo Ortiz, Mexican actress Geraldine Bazan, singer, songwriter and actress Paula DeAnda.

 “Canelo beat me, he beat me at the distance,” Chavez, Jr. said. “He is a very active fighter-he’s very good and he beat me. I wanted to box but he went to the ropes and I just needed to throw more punches. I would’ve attacked more I would’ve been countered by his punches. Nacho told me to do that but the strategy didn’t work. The speed and the distance was the key. I didn’t feel that much power because I felt dwindled, I couldn’t throw as many punches as I wanted. My father kept telling me to throw more punches from the ringside.”
Canelo vs. Chavez, Jr. was a 12-round fight presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with TGB sponsored by Tecate, BORN BOLD, O’Reilly Auto Parts, Adriana’s Insurance and Interjet.  Lemieux vs. Reyes was presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Eye of the Tiger Management, Matthysse vs. Taylor was a 10-round fight presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Arano Boxing and Star Boxing.

Right now, I think everyone is excited for September. Canelo looked very good tonight, and 100 percent he is the biggest challenge of my career. Good luck to Canelo in September.”
In the co-main event, Montreal-based slugger David Lemieux (38-3, 33 KOs) won a hard-fought unanimous 10-round decision over an extremely game Marco “Dorado” Reyes (35-4, 26 KOs).The three judges all saw the super middleweight tilt for Lemieux by the scores of 98-91 and 99-90 twice. Lemieux beat and bloodied Reyes from the first round on, but Reyes never went down.
“He is a solid fighter,” Lemieux said. “I give him the respect, he went the full 10 rounds. I could have done better but I hurt my hand after round two.”
 
“We obviously came with the best we had,” Reyes said. “In the last rounds, my objective was to throw as many shots as I could because I knew when I lost that point I was going to have to knock him out to win. He’s a great fighter and there’s a reason why he’s the third ranked in the world. We’re satisfied with the fight and the performance, and we did our best.”
Returning from a year-and-a-half layoff and making his debut at welterweight, Lucas “La Maquina” Matthysse (38-4, 35 KOs) of Chubut, Argentina roared back from his time off with a thunderous fifth-round knockout of Cleverly, Maryland’s Emanuel “Tranzformer” Taylor (20-5, 14 KOs).
“This victory motivates me, this is exactly what I needed to come back where I left off,” Matthysse said. “I felt great inside the ring and I felt like I dominated the fight at the pace I wanted. I feel great and I’m ready for what’s next.”
 
“My plan going in was to win,” Taylor said. “My opponent was a tough guy, but I don’t know why the ref stopped the fight. I could’ve kept going more rounds. After this, it’s back to training hard with my team.”
Opening up the pay-per-view, 2012 Olympian Joseph “JoJo” Diaz, Jr. (24-0, 13 KOs) emerged victorious over Manuel “Tino” Avila (22-1, 8 KOs) in a 10-round battle for the NABF and NABO featherweight titles. Diaz of South El Monte, California, won a unanimous decision by the scores of 100-90 and 99-91 twice.
My plan going in was to feel him out and be smart,” Diaz, Jr. said “Once I had him figured him out, I knew I could keep digging at him with my jab and do work. In the last few rounds, I kept throwing body shots to hurt him, which worked. Next up, I’m looking for a world title shot.”
 
 “My timing wasn’t there — I felt like this was a learning experience,” Avila said. “I need to learn how to pick up the pace in between rounds. Our styles were off and I felt like it could have been a better fight.”
Closing the free-view, 15-time national amateur champion Ryan “Kingry” Garcia (9-0, 8 KOs) extended his knockout streak to five, knocking down Tyrone “Hands of Stone” Luckey (8-7-3, 6 KOs) mere seconds into the first round and unloading in the second until the referee waived off the fight.
“The better the competition, the better the fight for me,” Garcia, fighting in the lightweight division, said. “I felt this was a really great chance for me to show off my skills because I usually get the knockout early. This fight was different because I was able to show how quick I can pop my opponent with a hook. People think because I’m small, I don’t have power-but I have explosive power and speed. I’m ready to go make history from here.”
In a quick turnaround from her March debut, 2012 Bronze Medalist Marlen Esparza (2-0) of Houston, Texas shut out Samantha Salazar (2-4-1) of Dallas, Texas over four rounds, earning the 40-36 unanimous victory on all three scorecards. The flyweight battle featured the debut of three-minute rounds in women’s boxing in the state of Nevada.
“It’s great to make history being the first woman in Nevada to do three-minute rounds,” Esparza said. “I know it’s been done elsewhere-but tonight it feels really special doing it in this fight. I plan on staying at three minutes and not going back to two minutes, so I know we will need to be strategic about how I train and fight.”
Opening up the free view, 2016 Mexican Olympian Raul Curiel (1-0) of Tamaulipas made his professional debut a successful one, earning a unanimous victory decision over Michoacan, Mexico’s Jesus Sanchez (1-2-2) in a four-round super welterweight affair.
“I thought I won all four rounds, but I got the win that I needed,” Curiel said. “I thank God for me and my opponent being able to get out of the ring healthy and safe – he was a strong fighter. I’m going to go back to Mexico for vacation, and jump back into the ring to get ready for my next fight.”
Continuing to build towards a world championship title shot, the slick Santa Ana California-based Ronny Rios (28-1, 13 KOs) unloaded power shots on Daniel “El Chato” Noriega (28-11-1, 15 KOs) until the referee waived off the fight in the fourth round of a scheduled 10-round super bantamweight fight.
“I’m obviously proud of the knock out win but I think as a fighter we are always critical of our performances,” Rios said. “I need to clean up a lot of my mistakes including leaning forward too much and loading up my punches; however, I’m ready for a title shot and some Micheladas for the Cinco de Mayo weekend.”
Opening up the action in the first fight of the evening, lightweight Joseph “Diamante” Aguirre (17-0, 9 KOs) from Cancun kept his undefeated record intact with a shutout unanimous, six-round decision over fellow Mexican countryman Angel “Sinaloa” Aispuro (8-5-2, 5 KOs).
“I hurt my hand in the third round, but I fought like I usually do so no one would notice, ” said Joseph Aguirre. “I was and still am nervous, but at least I can say that I fought on such a big card. I feel like I had a good performance. My opponent was strong and came forward, and could take a punch.”

Fueron los muchachos de azul los que primero se acercaron al primer punto cuando Maxime Chanot giró la pelota de un ángulo hacia la portería en el minuto 8, pero Alec Kann hizo el salvamento.
En el minuto 17, fue el capitán que abrió el marcador, celebrando su nueva extensión de contrato en estilo típicamente potente.

Goles de Atlanta: Carmona 38’

Que pasó…
El New York City FC celebró el Día de la Familia con estilo frente a 25,605 aficionados gracias a una emocionante victoria por 3-1 sobre Atlanta United.
David Villa, Rodney Wallace y Maxi Moralez compartieron los goles en una demostración que mejoró NYCFC a un récord de 5-3-1 a través de nueve partidos.
Fueron los muchachos de azul los que primero se acercaron al primer punto cuando Maxime Chanot giró la pelota de un ángulo hacia la portería en el minuto 8, pero Alec Kann hizo el salvamento.
En el minuto 17, fue el capitán que abrió el marcador, celebrando su nueva extensión de contrato en estilo típicamente potente.
Villa intercambió pases con Rodney Wallace y plantó el balón adelante de Kann, disparando desde dentro del poste.

A pesar de una primera mitad dominante del equipo local, Carlos Carmona empato en el minuto 38 con una volea a la parte superior de la caja.
NYCFC dio una buena respuesta a ese gol, casi retomando la delantera en los últimos segundos de la primera mitad con Alexander Callens, pero su esfuerzo perdió por poco el exterior del poste.
Los hombres de Vieira hicieron un comienzo rápido en el segundo tiempo. Dentro de un minuto del reinicio, Wallace y Villa compartieron tres disparos rápidos que golpearon la madera o fueron bloqueados.
Wallace compensó por esas oportunidades perdidas en algún estilo en el minuto 60 cuando marcó un gol después de un cruce de Ethan White.
Un minuto más tarde, Maxi Moralez anoto el tercer gol vital para mantener a NYCFC en frente. Esta vez fue Wallace quien lo ayudo, pasando la pelota en el camino de Maxi.

Finalmente, los hombres de Vieira tuvieron la ventaja que su juego había merecido y no lo dejaron escapar, subiendo al tercer lugar en la Conferencia Este.

NYCFC XI: Johnson, White, Chanot, Callens, Sweat, Ring, Herrera, Moralez, Harrison, Wallace, Villa (C)
Sustitutos de NYCFC: Johansen, Awuah, Brillant, Pirlo, Camargo, Stertzer, Okoli
El entrenador Patrick Vieira hizo un cambio al XI que gano por 3-2 sobre Columbus Crew el pasado fin de semana.
Vieira ha traído de nuevo a David Villa en la misma semana que el jugador español firmó una nueva extensión de contrato de un año.
Yangel Herrera, quien anotó y asistió en Ohio, fue preferido a Andrea Pirlo en su juego final de NYCFC antes de la Copa Mundial Sub-20.
Ben Sweat mantuvo su lugar en el lateral izquierdo junto a Alexander Callens, Maxime Chanot y Ethan White, mientras que Alex Ring y Maxi Moralez se unieron a Herrera en el centro del campo.

Rayados cae en cierre del Clausura 2017

El Monterrey es derrotado por Morelia

 

El cierre del Monterrey dentro del Clausura 2017 de la Liga BBVA Bancomer no fue el esperado al cerrar con derrota por 1-2 ante el Morelia en el último compromiso de la fase regular.

 

Rayados batalló para mostrarse con claridad en el arco rival y a pesar del tanto de Dorlan Pabon por la vía del penal, un gol en el último minuto decretó el resultado final ante los 44 mil 341 espectadores reunidos en el Estadio BBVA Bancomer.

 

Como era de esperarse, el trámite del partido fue muy disputado y sufrido, siendo Gastón Lezcano quien puso al frente a los michoacanos tras una descolgada por derecha empujando solamente el esférico al minuto 31′.

 

Con el marcador en contra, los dirigidos por Antonio Mohamed manejaron las emociones del compromiso aunque no se mostraron espacios suficientes hasta que al 83′ Rogelio Funes fue derribado dentro del área el cual fue marcado por Pabon al 85′, dando esperanzas a los del Cerro de La Silla.

 

Obligados por la situación apremiante que vivían, Monarcas se fue al frente y en tiempo de compensación Raúl Ruidíaz empujó el esférico decretando la pizarra final.

 

El rival para el Monterrey en Cuartos de Final quedará definido el día de mañana cuando concluya formalmente en campeonato regular, ocupando hasta el momento el segundo lugar en la Tabla General.

LAS VEGAS (May 3, 2017) – Former two-division world champion Canelo Alvarez (48-1-1, 34 KOs) and Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. (50-2-1, 32 KOs) today hosted the final press conference ahead of their superfight showdown on Saturday, May 6 presented live on HBO Pay-Per-View® at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT. The live stream of the press conference can be viewed here.
Below is what the fighters and their teams had to sat at today’s final press conference:
 
CANELO ALVAREZ, Former Two-Division World Champion:
“On my behalf, I’m going to do everything on my side to make this one of the most historic fights in Mexico. We will be ready on Saturday.
“Every fight is very important to my career, and this fight is no exception. I’m very happy the fight is here on Saturday.”
JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ, JR., Former WBC Middleweight World Champion:
“I feel ready and happy that the fight is only a few days away. I came here to win, not just to fight. Everything has already been said; we’ve all spoken; and I’m here to win this great fight on Saturday, May 6.”
OSCAR DE LA HOYA, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions:
“People know this is an all-out action-packed war. We haven’t had a fight like this in years; it’s a true Mexican civil war.
“Given the obvious Cinco de Mayo date and the bad blood between the boxers, I think it is safe to say this is the biggest fight in Mexican history. To give you an idea of how big this event is, let me give you some numbers. This will be the most attended indoor fight in the storied Las Vegas fight history with more than 20,000 in attendance. The fight sold out in 10 days, and we opened up more circuit-viewing theaters for everyone to watch on fight night in Las Vegas at MGM properties. Fight fans in six continents will be able to watch the fight with the HBO platform and streamed live on goldenboyppv.com giving anyone with a phone or laptop the ability to watch.
JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ, SR., Mexican Boxing Legend and Father to Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr.:
“I’m happy to be here, and I’m happy Saturday is close. I’ve lived many big moments in my life, and this is probably one of the biggest moments and fights in my life. It’s a big fight for Mexico, but I believe this a fight that can be won-anything can be done in the ring.”
BERNARD HOPKINS, Future Hall of Famer and Golden Boy Promotions Business Partner:
“This fight is a big one because I don’t believe we’ve seen a Mexican fighter face another Mexican fighter with pride, dignity and talent all on the line. I look at this as a very brutal fight because Chavez, Jr. is coming with legacy behind him and to prove what ever has happened in the past won’t happen on Saturday. Canelo is the face of one of the most important months in boxing, and I know he wants to continue that reputation. I look forward to what will happen on Saturday and I tell everyone to pay attention to what will happen.”
EDDY REYNOSO, Head Trainer to Canelo Alvarez:

“We are very proud to be a part of making history when we host this fight on Cinco de Mayo weekend. As many of you have noticed, T-Mobile Arena has changed the sports and entertainment landscape in Las Vegas, as we all look forward to Canelo’s return to after his knockout victory over Amir Khan last year.

“This show is special because it honors the rich tradition of Cinco de Mayo. We know Canelo and Chavez, Jr. will put on a show in the ring-both are very talented, skilled fighters with a lot at stake.

“For these two Mexican warriors, there is no better time to have these fights. The Nevada State Athletic Commission is ready and padded to go to work. We are a team, and I do a great deal of research and statistical analysis into our officials and I know everyone who has worked under pressure in Las Vegas.
