En un fin de semana festivo, el Red bulls recibió en casa a un DC United, que trato de complicar mas la situación a los anfitriones locales, ya que solamente tienen  2 partidos ganados, de los 6 disputados, hoy mas que nunca los dirigidos por Jesse Marsh procuraban sacar otra victoria para aspirar a un titulo esta temporada, aunque fueron mas sólidos en el ataque y crearon mas jugadas de peligro que sus rivales no lograron anotar ningún gol en los primeros 45 minutos de la primera mitad.

No quisieron ganar

En entretenido encuentro, Atlas y Pumas se cansaron de fallar y empatan a 1 gol

En la vida hay una frase que cita: “El que perdona pierde” y si bien la noche de este miércoles no sucedió literalmente, sí puede acontecer en futuras fechas, cuando menos la posibilidad de entrar a la liguilla de alguno de los 2 equipos que se enfrentaron en la cancha del estadio Jalisco, pues en un partido lleno de llegadas a los arcos, Atlas y Pumas dejaron ir la posibilidad de quedarse con los 3 puntos y se limitaron a empatar a un gol.

Fue en punto de las 21:30 horas cuando el árbitro central dio el silbatazo inicial de este encuentro correspondiente a la fecha 10 y que por asuntos de la huelga arbitral se llevó acabo hasta estos días, y fueron los de casa los que inmediatamente se lanzaron al frente en busca de la victoria, queriendo aprovechar al máximo los 3 encuentros consecutivos que sostendrán en el Jalisco, este el primero de ellos.

Y fue al minuto 16 cuando los embates rojinegros rindieron frutos, pues en una jugada llena de velocidad y un tanto atropellada el esférico quedó en el área chica, aprovechando un rebote para que entre el africano Cliffort Aboagye y un defensa felino empujaran el balón al fondo de las redes, para darle la ventaja temprano al cuadro dirigido por “El profe” José Guadalupe Cruz. Atlas tuvo la posibilidad de ampliar su ventaja pero el no aprovechar un 2 vs 1 Matías Alustiza y Martín Barragán culminó en una ofensiva del cuadro de C.U. con la cual llegó el empate, después de que el canterano Jesús Gallardo desbordara por la izquierda de su ataque y enviara un centro a media altura que Matías Britos solo tuvo que empujar, con este marcador ambas escuadras culminarían la primera mitad.

Para la segunda mitad los 2 conjuntos tuvieron oportunidades para ampliar el marcador, más del lado rojinegro que de los auriazules, sin embargo entre tiros desviados y sendas atajadas de los 2 arqueros las porterías se cerraron y no fueron permitidas más anotaciones, así al minuto 93 el silbante indicó el fin del encuentro, ante la molestia de la afición rojinegra, pues muchos de ellos consideraban que este partido pudo haber sido ganado por su equipo y no lograron concretar dicha victoria.

Con ello los tapatíos se quedaron en el séptimo lugar general con 19 puntos, mientras que los universitarios aún se mantienen afuera de la zona de liguilla, en el noveno lugar aunque a tiro de piedra, pues suma 18 puntos y con algunas jornadas por disputarse se mantienen vivas sus esperanzas de ser parte de la fiesta grande.

Lo que más me deja satisfecho es que juegue quien juegue, todos saben (en Pumas) lo que tienen que hacer dentro de la cancha. La gente salió ganando porque fue un partido muy atractivo. El punto es bueno por estar de visita y hoy el equipo demostró una vez más que nunca se va a encerrar”, afirmó Juan Francisco Palencia D.T. del conjunto universitario

Los rojinegros se fueron al frente en el marcador al minuto 15, cuando Clifford Aboagye aprovechó un rechazo para enviar el balón al fondo de las redes. El empate lo consiguió Matías Britos, en el minuto 28, al rematar un pase enviado por Alan Mendoza desde la banda izquierda.

The championship event, presented by Corona Extra, will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View® beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.

Below is what the fighters and dais guests had to say at the final press tour stop:

Andre “S.O.G.” Ward – Unified Light Heavyweight World Champion
“I want to thank LA, tremendous fight city, tremendous fight town. I’ve been here a lot as a young boy coming up, taking the trips from Northern California, paying my dues early. I appreciate you guys coming out.
“I told the people in New York, you’ve got perception and you’ve got reality. You’ve got a lot of misinformation coming from that side. You’ve got a lot of lies coming from that side. A lot of old school tactics. It’s 2017 man. All that old school stuff that his side is trying to do, it’s not going to work. At the end of the day, we’ve got a date. You’re selling fear, we’re not buying it. At the end of the day, you’ve got to see me June 17. I don’t care what you say, I don’t care where you’re from, I don’t care how you came up, it doesn’t matter bro. You’re going to have to see me June 17, it’s that simple.

“I didn’t have to take this fight. This fight is for you, the fans. This fight is for the boxing community, because this is the fight everybody clamored about. At the end of the day, where I come from, it’s about showing up. It’s not about all that talking. It sells tickets, it sells Pay-Per-Views and we get a couple of headlines. But if you watch my career, we don’t say anything we just go get it done. June 17 is going to be no different. Reality check.”

 
Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev – Former Unified Light Heavyweight World Champion

“I’m glad to be back in LA, I feel more comfortable here at home than at Oakland. They said I should prove something more, for who? For them? No. I already proved it for myself and for everybody in the boxing world that I came from nothing, nowhere at all as a professional and amateur boxing. I had never been in a world championship or Olympic games, but I came here to the United States and got to where I am right now. Believe in yourself that everything will be good. And I believe in myself and I will get my belts back on June 17. Believe me and be sure I will finish your boxing career.”

 
Michael Yormark – Roc Nation President & Chief of Branding and Strategy
“Ward-Kovalev 2 was officially announced just over a week ago, and since then we have been overwhelmed with hype, media coverage, trash talk, and verbal sparring. In fact, Team Kovalev as the B-side promoter has made a habit of playing nice on the dais and then talking trash to the media when they are a safe distance from Andre – a lot of good it’s done so far. But, just as I mentioned in New York, and again yesterday in Oakland, all of this chatter means nothing now and will mean even less come June 17 when the two best pound-for-pound fighters in the world go toe-to-toe, and only one man is left standing as champion – with the loser being left with no one to blame but himself – No Excuses!

“It’s quite simple – these guys do not like each other and are literally foaming out the mouth to get back in the ring together. Last November, Andre Ward staged an epic comeback against Sergey Kovalev, and proved he is in a class of his own in the boxing world. Immediately after the match the excuses starting rolling in from Team Kovalev. There was a lot of talk, a lot of debate, a lot of speculation, a lot of finger-pointing and hand-wringing. So, like the true champion that he is on June 17, Andre will be back in the ring with Sergey to once again prove his superiority and continue to cement his legacy as boxing’s best.”

Kathy Duva – CEO of Main Events
“Michael’s speech, as always so eloquent and he did a great job of thanking everyone, so I’m not going to waste your time repeating everything he said. People at HBO, people at MGM, our sponsors, I appreciate everything you do for us. There’s one group he didn’t thank and I’m going to take the time to do that today. I’ve done this I hate to admit for 40 years. I was three when I started, I was the youngest publicist in the history of boxing. My job as publicist is to deal with you, the press. I know that you don’t make a fortune. I know that most of you do this the same reason I do, for love. We are afflicted by this disease. You come out here, most of you on your own dime, on your own time. Nobody here is going to be a millionaire yet you come and have the same passion as we do. You cover this sport so closely because you share that passion. I want you to know how much Sergey Kovalev and Main Events appreciate that. We’re never going to forget you.

“Both Sergey and Andre have a history now. As Michael pointed out, they both have something to prove, they each have a story. Right now, Sergey’s story is that he wants his belts back. Andre’s story is that he wants respect, because he may have those belts but as Egis just illustrated, the respect is still with this man. And that is because, as Egis said, he went to Wales to win his world title, he went to Philadelphia to win his other world titles when he fought Bernard Hopkins. He went to Canada to fight Jean Pascal. He is champion of the world whether or not he’s got the belts at this moment or relinquished them temporarily, he’s still a champion to an awful lot of people.”

 
James Prince – Manager of Andre Ward
“Now, to get down to business over here. Kovalev’s manager, let me begin with him. The man got up here and said he doesn’t talk a lot, but as we can see he had quite a bit to say. He said a lot, but he didn’t tell the truth, but I like to shine the spotlight on some of those lies he told. As far as Andre Ward, he’s a gold medalist. When you become a gold medalist, that means you fought not only people in Russia, but people around the world. He represented the United States of America in 2004 and won the gold medal. That means you traveled the world and defeated everybody before you. Who can dispute that? We have a good medalist here, which means we have the truth.
“I keep telling these guys over here, beginning with Sergio, I keep telling them that you can’t sell no fear to us, we’re men of God. We’re not buying any fear about what you want to do. We’ve cracked your code and we’re going to pick up where we left off come June 17.

“With that being said, the United States versus Russia. Y’all have a president, Putin I think is his name. And we know Trump, he’s a boxing fan. Maybe we need to call on Trump to call Putin. I think Trump’s a betting man. We may need to crank up something there between the presidents and see what we can get going. Once again, no weapon formed against us shall prosper. Y’all keep on hoping. They call you ‘manager of the year’. I’m going to be ‘manager of that night’, and that’s all that matters.”

 
Egis Klimas – Manager of Sergey Kovalev
“As Michael was saying about Andre Ward, he had one thing right, undefeated. But undefeated doesn’t mean the best. Muhammad Ali wasn’t undefeated. Many of the great fighters weren’t undefeated because they fought real fighters. Nowadays, it’s a lot of protection going on.

“Yesterday, we went to Andre’s hometown of Oakland. He might be the best in Oakland, I believe that. We’ve been there. We’ve been in England, we’ve been in Canada, we went all around the world which means a world champion. Andre never fought out of – maybe two times, one time he fought Sergey in Nevada and one time he fought in Jersey. Most of his fights were at home in Oakland. We hope this fight is going to be much better. After the press conference, we stopped to grab something to eat. Three or four people from his hometown recognized Sergey and came up to him and said ‘we hope this time you won’t leave it to the judges. You got robbed, you’ve got to kick his ass’. That was in his hometown. We’ll see you guys on June 17.”

WBA SUPER FEATHERWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION JEZREEL CORRALES SIGNS MULTI-YEAR DEAL WITH GOLDEN BOY PROMOTIONS

Apr 13, 2017
WBA SUPER FEATHERWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION 
JEZREEL “EL INVISIBLE” CORRALES SIGNS MULTI-YEAR 
DEAL WITH GOLDEN BOY PROMOTIONS
LOS ANGELES (April, 12, 2017) – In one of its finest acquisitions yet, Golden Boy Promotions has signed current WBA Super Featherweight World Champion Jezreel “El Invisible” Corrales (21-1, 8 KOs) to a multi-year promotional deal that will provide a runway for the sensational Panamanian boxer to cement his status as one of the all-time greatest super featherweights in the world.
“First of all, I would like to thank God for allowing these doors to keep opening up for me,” said Jezreel Corrales. “I would also like to thank Golden Boy Promotions for giving me the opportunity to become a part of their huge company and for giving me the chance to showcase my skills in the U.S. market and being able to perform on the big stage and participate in the huge events that they put together. With their hand, I will be the best super featherweight champion in the world.”
We know that Corrales has a huge opportunity to impress boxing fans here in the U.S, and we have no doubt that he will attain his goal as one of the best super featherweights in the world,” said Chairman and CEO Oscar De La Hoya. “We look forward to seeing him showcase his talent here, and taking on the best in his class.”
“We’d like to thank Golden Boy Promotions for the grand opportunity to sign this special contract with Jezreel,” said Rogelio Espino, representative to Jezreel Corrales. “Corrales is a tactical fighter who has great speed, and has a unique boxing style that fans in North America will love. Jezreel, in the hands of Golden Boy Promotions, can and will conquer the U.S. fan base and cement his status as one of the current best super featherweights in the world.”
The WBA Super World Champion made waves in April of 2016 when he knocked out Takashi Uchiyama, who at the time was considered one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world, within the first two rounds of the bout for the coveted WBA belt. Corrales proved that his victory over Uchiyama was indeed no fluke in their 12-round rematch in December of 2017, taking his belt back home after the split decision in his favor. Known for his unorthodox boxing style and athleticism, some of Corrales’s accolades include:
  • Former WBA Fedecaribe super featherweight champion
  • Former South American super featherweight champion
  • Former WBC FECARBOX featherweight champion
  • Former WBC Latino featherweight champion

Delgado, Huerta, Navarro and Robles, Jr. are training hard for their upcoming bouts, here’s what they had to say about their upcoming show this Friday, April 14:
IVAN “STRIKER” DELGADO, Super Featherweight Prospect:
Ivan “Striker” Delgado training for his fight on April 14
“This fight means stepping up to the next level. Huerta’s experienced – he’s conditioned and hungry for the opportunity to step back into the big leagues. It’ll be a great match stylistically since Huerta moves forward aggressively, and I’m not scared to step up to exchange punches while being smart about it. I love being a Golden Boy fighter – the support they have given me, what they have done to build my career since I signed and giving me fights that I need, for example stepping up my competition to face someone like Charles Huerta, make me feel so blessed.
“I’ll be in the ring wearing black and red trunks because those are the colors I got my first knockout victory in. My walkout song will be a song by Vicente Fernandez called, “No Me Se Rajar.” The song motivates me, and the lyrics talk about being strong and not being able to be taken down when life tries to knock you down. I usually listen to music from Gerardo Ortiz and Banda MS, or hip-hop/rap artists like Kendrick Lamar and Kanye.
Ivan “Striker” Delgado training for match against Charles Huerta
“I’ve been boxing since I was five years old. My first amateur fight was at the Hollenbeck Youth Center when at eight years old, and I remember after winning seeing myself as a professional boxer. I was okay in school, I was really good at math, but I was better at boxing. With all my experience, five years from now I hope that I can at least become a mandatory challenger for a title, and with the support with my team, family, and Golden Boy, I know I can accomplish that.”
CHARLES HUERTA, Super Featherweight Prospect:
Charles Huerta in the ring as he trains for his upcoming bout on April 14
“This fight gets me to where I once was – back into the boxing scene and fighting with top guys. I know that I’ll have to watch out for his tough left hook, but I believe that with my experience I’ll overwhelm him. I’ve fought more experienced fighters, fought more rounds, and that’ll make a difference in the ring.
“I’ll be walking out to “Andamos
Huerta training for his fight against Ivan Delgado
En El Ruedo,” by Ulices Chaidez. My last fight was a tough eight rounds, and the song talks about coming back stronger, like how I am going to do with this fight. I’ve been fighting since I could remember, since my dad was a trainer I was always at the gym. In all honesty, I can’t even remember if I choose this life or if it choose me.
“I take inspiration from some of the greats – whether that’s Miguel Cotto, Canelo, and some of the other world champions. I see myself climbing back to the top and becoming a world champion. I’ve known I would be a champion since my first knockout victory as an amateur.”
JONATHAN “THUNDER” NAVARRO, Welterweight Prospect:
Jonathan “Thunder” Navarro training for his co-main bout on April 14

“This fight helps me improve, and test out what I have been working on in the gym. I know I’m going to get the win – it’s just a matter of timing and where my head is come fight night. I’ve been working a lot on my jab, footwork, head movement, and just being able to go under and work the body with my punches.

“Growing up, I wanted to be the typical – like a cop or a firefighter. When I turned 15, and started winning medals in the amateurs, I became anxious to finally become a professional. Fighting in LA is a dream, and I prefer fighting here than in any other place because my family and roots are here.
Jonathan Navarro training inside the ring
“One of my favorite all-time boxers is Mike Tyson. He just didn’t care about what anyone had to say about him – like he literally bit someone’s ear off and he did not care.”
 
MANNY ROBLES, JR., Featherweight Prospect:
Manny Robles, Jr. trains with father Manny Robles, Sr. ahead of Golden Boy Promotions Debut

“This is my first fight with Golden Boy, and I couldn’t be more grateful. I know my opponent is a veteran in the sport, but he’s going to make me look good when I win. I’m going to have to be smart and aggressive, and the knock out will come out in the process. Once I see that he’s hurt I’ll go for the kill. My corner is really strong – my dad Manny Robles, Sr. is my trainer and we make such a strong team. This is a family affair, and I wouldn’t be where I am with out them.

“Since I was four, my dad and uncle, Edgar Jasso, were fighting. My dad was always taking me to the gym, and I loved it. I remember my first amateur fight was at the Azteca gym at eight years old, and I received the “outstanding boxer” medal for my knockout victory.
Manny Robles, Jr. training for his fight on April 14
“Jorge Linares is one of my favorite fighters at the moment. He’s such a complete fighter – he has the speed, agility and performance. I even got the huge opportunity to spar with him for three weeks while he trained in Las Vegas for his past fight in March. I feel like if opportunities like that keep coming, within these next five years I can be a world champion.”
 
Delgado vs. Huerta is an eight-round super featherweight bout presented by Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by “Tecate, BORN BOLD,” Casa Mexico Tequila, and Adriana’s Insurance.

Below is what the fighters and dais guests had to say at the press conference:
Andre “S.O.G.” Ward – Unified Light Heavyweight World Champion
“I appreciate everybody for coming out today. It’s always good to be home in the Bay Area. It’s amazing how in a short time, eight, nine, ten years, we put the Bay on the map in terms of the boxing world. Oakland used to be a major fight town, and we got away from it. But through myself and many other young fighters, contenders who may not have had opportunities that I was afforded, we’re doing our part to continue to represent the Bay in a major way and that’s a beautiful thing.
“I’m excited about this rematch. These are the things I dreamed about as a kid. I love it. I love the back and forth, some people being with me and some people not being with me. I don’t mind the stuff they talk about on social media. That’s perception. I try and deal in the reality.
“At the end of the day, you’ve got to see me on June 17, we’ve got to fight. I don’t care what you say, I don’t care what the team says. That’s going to make headlines. That’s all good and part of the business. I understand the business very well and I’m good with that. But if you guys know me – the boxing world knows me, the Bay Area knows me – I don’t have to do a lot of talking. To my young guys coming up, you don’t have to talk a lot. Just show up when you’re supposed to show up. Lock in and do what you got to do to prepare, and when it’s time in that biggest moment when the lights come on, find a way to get it done.
“Boxing right now is not like it used to be. It’s a climate right now where there’s a lot of talking. Guys don’t do what they say they’re going to do. They don’t perform and then they find excuses on why they didn’t perform. There’s only a handful of guys in history that I know that talked and then backed it up. We don’t have a lot of that today. So, it’s okay to not be the loudest talker in the room, but when it’s time to shine, be that guy. Be the hardest worker. And another thing, I want to encourage every fighter in this room – you don’t let anybody beat you before you get in the ring. I don’t care what you say, where you’re from, what your reputation is, it’s a healthy respect you have for an opponent to prepare physically and mentally, you got to have that. But you don’t let anybody – media, broadcasters, fighters, anybody – beat you before you get in the ring. You make them earn it. And if they do it, tip your hat to them and give it credit. But you’re not beating me on reputations. This is the first time this team has met a team where that stuff isn’t working. You beat me, you’re going to earn it.
“I hope he’s the best he can be. I hope he makes the adjustments he’s supposed to make. We’re going to get ready. We’re not taking it for granted. That’s what big rematches and big fights are all about. I want the best Sergey. I want his team to be focused. I want him to be focused and I know my team is going to be focused. Let’s see what happens. The question I have for him and his team is, with all that loud talking, who are y’all trying to convince? Me or him?”
Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev – Former Unified Light Heavyweight World Champion 
“The other side is saying I have to prove a lot, I have to show a lot. I don’t need to prove or show anything. I showed and proved everything on November 19. Anybody who hasn’t seen that or doesn’t think that, you’re going to see it on June 17. This is what I promise and this is what I’m going to do. The ones who think about Andre Ward’s victory, you can still pray for him because I’m going to show it on June 17. He got those belts somehow. I think June 17 is going to be the day everybody’s going to see the way it’s supposed to be.”
Michael Yormark – Roc Nation President & Chief of Branding and Strategy
“Hello Oakland! We are so happy to be here today. Today is a truly special day for this community, for this city. Oakland is synonymous with hard work, toughness, loyalty and pride. Today the native son returns. A man who represents all of those characteristics will stand before you, and unlike many in the professional sports world, Andre Ward is here to fight for Oakland! The best boxer in the world, the face of his sport, the hero and icon of this historic town – he fights for you. He did so last November, when he staged an epic comeback against dangerous Sergey Kovalev, and emerged victorious. After Andre’s win, there was a lot of talk, a lot of debate, a lot of speculation, a lot of excuses. But Oakland doesn’t make excuses, Oakland doesn’t talk, Oakland acts.
“In one of his latest posts, Sergey said Andre ‘slaps like woman’. Grammatical issues aside, on behalf of all the strong Oakland women in the audience today I’d like to say ‘thank you Sergey for the compliment’. As someone who has spent the better part of the past three decades promoting sports and entertainment events, I’ll give Sergey a lot of credit – he had some great soundbites in New York yesterday. He said ‘Andre wears a crown’. Actually Sergey, they are belts, you should know, I think a couple of them used to be yours. He said he dislikes Andre – which brings the number of people here in Oakland today that dislike Andre up to a total of two: you and Kathy. But in all seriousness, the stakes could not be higher for this rematch and when Sergey says Andre ‘will not show up for this fight,’ that tells me he hasn’t done his research. Andre has built his career on shining brightest in the biggest moments. June 17 is the biggest of moments – more than just wins and championship belts, this fight will ultimately dictate the fate of each fighter’s legacy.
“This is the type of fight that is decided by pride, guts, toughness, overcoming adversity, and who just wants it more. For Andre Ward, being raised by the city of Oakland is his ultimate advantage. He was born with incredible talent and ability, but Oakland gave him his toughness, his pride and his uncanny ability to stare down any challenge, and dominate it. June 17 will be no different – at the end of the night there will be only one champion, and there will be no excuses.”
Kathy Duva – CEO of Main Events
“If Andre Ward is half as tough in the ring as his promoter talks, I suppose Sergey may have his hands full. But we are coming to Las Vegas in June and Sergey has one goal in mind and that is to make sure that the winner actually wins the fight this time.
“Sergey Kovalev is probably the biggest perfectionist I’ve ever met. I’ve seen him walk away from fights that he knocked his opponent out in two rounds, and then apologize for his performance. Everybody keeps talking about excuses on the other side, and nobody’s making any. He is blaming himself, he has apologized to his fans for not making that win emphatic enough so that people could not take it from him because, with all the respect in the world to Andre Ward, he didn’t win Sergey’s belts they were taken from Sergey.”
James Prince – Manager of Andre Ward
“We’re excited about June 17, as we were the past year when we took care of Goliath over here. We know what we had to do with them, and now June 17 is right around the corner. I don’t know if Sergio’s manager repeated everything that Sergio was saying. It seemed to be a disconnection going on. I don’t know if he wanted to say what he was saying. I think they’re confused today as they’re going to be on June 17 in the ring when he sees he can’t accomplish the things he wants to accomplish.
“I said it to him yesterday and I’ll reiterate it today. For some reason, I get the feeling that he thinks somebody is scared of him. Bullies think that way. He feels like he can say things and impose fear in men of God’s heart. I told him men of God, we don’t fear nothing because we know no weapon formed against us shall prosper. I know Andre Ward doesn’t need any help with him, with the threats he’s making and feeling like he wants to hit Andre Ward in his head. A word to the wise, to all that’s listening – do what you got to do in the ring, because you’re in a place that’s called town business. We don’t play those kinds of games outside of the ring. Let’s stay focused and attempt to try and hit him in the head in the ring, because you’re going to have problems with that. But you’ll have real big problems outside of the ring.
“Andre Ward’s team means something to him. When we speak, our words carry value. For you to get up here and act like what we’re saying doesn’t mean anything, maybe that’s how it goes on in Russia but in the United States of America we put value in what we say. Once again, the United States of America shall be victorious on June 17, and no weapons formed against us shall prosper.”
 
Egis Klimas – Manager of Sergey Kovalev
“Talking is very, very cheap. Trust me, I’ve been in this business for a while, and I’ve seen it many times. Managers, trainers, promoters coming in and talking a lot of shit into the microphone. But then it comes to the night, these are the two men that are going to go in the ring, and they’re going to fight. Nothing to do with the promotion, nothing to do with the manager, nothing to do with the trainers. Trainers might be giving them the advice, but these two guys are going to survive.
“You can’t lie to the people’s eyes with what they saw on November 19. I’m not going to talk about it. I’m not going to go there because it’s already history. Forget about it. I want everybody to see who’s going to be coming to Vegas on June 17, what is going to happen. I want to thank everybody who’s involved in this fight and putting it together, HBO Pay-Per-View. I want to thank as always the media because without you guys nobody will know what happened here.”
Virgil Hunter – Trainer of Andre Ward
 “It’s a good fight coming June 17 against the most dangerous and most feared light heavyweight in the world, Sergey Kovalev against a lucky victorious man in Andre Ward. So, I guess this fight here will pretty much settle it. I think if you look at the realistic facts of it all, I think only Sergey’s been in the media talking. I think Mr. Klimas shouldunderstand that we haven’t said a word. The other side has talked about ending people’s careers to knocking you out to insulting God almighty. All that’s coming from this side so we understand what goes on and I think it’s a lot of doubt, it’s a lot of anger. I don’t see Coach Jackson here today and to be honest I don’t expect to see him June 17 because you got to put the blame somewhere.
“I’m looking for a real good fight. Sergey Kovalev is definitely not underestimated. I don’t have a problem saying that before we fought I was a fan of his. I’m still a fan of his. I just won’t be a fan of his on June 17. This is not me blowing smoke. I admire his skill. I always knew that if we came across each other that it was going to be a tough fight, difficult fight, and a fight of attrition. And I expect the same thing June 17.
“I think Andre said it best when he said somebody’s will was going to be broke in that fight. But it would be nice to go into that without biting the hand that fed you. Everybody’s an expert from the reporters to the announcers when it comes to judging a fight. All of a sudden, they were all wrong that night. So, I think that’s an insult to what goes on in boxing. I think it wasn’t right. I think it was wrong particularly since HBO has built Sergey into the star that he rightfully is. Like I said before and I’ll say today, I’ll challenge anybody to sit with me and show me where he won the fight. He fought a hell of a fight because he’s a hell of a fighter, but he didn’t win the fight.
“So, I guess all of the answers will be answered June 17. My advice is relax, don’t be uptight. You can’t drink year in and year out and expect at some point for it not to catch up to you and I would bet money that if we could go internally and see inside that that’s one of the causes that’s causing him to get fatigued now. It’s not the overtraining, it’s not this and it’s not that. It’s just guys are standing up and going 12 rounds now. But you can’t drink vodka year in and year out and expect on fight night to fight somebody like Andre.”
Tony Walker – Vice President, HBO Pay-Per-View
“On behalf of my Executive Vice President Peter Nelson and the rest of the staff at HBO I’d like to thank everybody for coming out to talk some big-time boxing today. First, I want to thank Michael and Kathy and their staff at Roc Nation and Main Events. It’s not easy putting big time fights together no matter how much everybody wants it – and the fighters wanted it. The promoters worked and we have here June 17 one of the biggest sporting events of the year.
“I would also like to thank, as Michael did, the community of Oakland. This has always been a boxing city. We have great viewership numbers from Oakland and the entire Bay Area no matter who seems to fight. So, we appreciate the support – we love the support you give Andre. A great home-grown guy in every way and we know that we’re going to do some big business here in the Oakland area and throughout the Bay Area for the fight.
“I would just like to say that the fight will be distributed by all the usual distributors, the cable, the satellite and telephone companies and I guarantee you a good picture, great sound, and a great broadcast that night for the suggested retail price of $54.95. We think we have the best broadcast team in the business and its going to be a fun night to gather friends and the family for a great sporting event.
“I would just say that when a lot is on the line, as there is in this fight, there’s drama – and there’s no better TV then when drama is involved. So, thank you very much and we hope if we don’t see you in Las Vegas hopefully you’ll get a chance to watch it on HBO Pay-Per-View.”
