Esfuerzo y determinación, la clave del éxito

Jun 7, 2019

Cancún, Quintana Roo.- Si bien el inicio de la Pretemporada de las Chivas en el Caribe mexicano ha sido muy prometedor debido a que desde la primera sesión de entrenamiento se notó la determinación y empeño que todos los elementos del Guadalajara han dispuesto en cada ejercicio realizado, la misión del Rebaño Sagradoserá incrementar el nivel de intensidad con el paso de los días, lo cual Jesús Molinaconsideró será la clave para afrontar de la mejor manera el Apertura 2019 y librar cuanto antes el tema porcentual del próximo año futbolístico, además de que no dudó en asegurar que será la base para retomar el nivel competitivo que llevó al Chiverío a ganarlo todo en torneos recientes.

El trabajo si hace la diferencia
“El trabajo es la base del éxito, necesitamos trabajar muchísimo y ser conscientes de lo que nos vamos a jugar el próximo año futbolístico, tenemos que ir partido a partido para superar el tema porcentual, sin embargo yo considero que tenemos un gran plantel como para pensar a lo grande y creo que si nos planteamos estar en los primeros lugares, eso no va a ayudar a superar el tema del descenso”.

Con bríos renovados
“Las Pretemporadas siempre son para establecer un fondo físico que te permita estar bien en cuestiones de potencia y resistencia durante todo el semestre, obviamente será importante también trabajar el aspecto mental para poder dejar atrás el mal torneo pasado y saber que comenzamos de cero; todos venimos con la ilusión de sacar a este equipo adelante por nosotros, nuestras familias y por la afición”

La influencia del ‘Jefe’
Tomás Boy le ha impuesto al grupo una mentalidad diferente, hemos trabajado estos primeros días en acoplarnos mejor a lo que pretende tácticamente y a perfeccionar la circulación del esférico, estoy seguro de que mostraremos un futbol que gustará a la tribuna porque a nosotros nos ha convencido su idea, veo el grupo contento y comprometido, creo que todos venimos con energías renovadas y estaremos a la altura de lo que se jugará el próximo semestre”.

FIFA and UN Women sign first-ever memorandum of understanding

Jun 7, 2019



The first-ever memorandum of understanding (MoU) between FIFA and the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) was signed by FIFA President Gianni Infantino and UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo‑Ngcuka at the FIFA Women’s Football Convention today, a few hours before the opening match of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019™.

“This is a significant moment for FIFA as we combine forces with UN Women to realise gender equality for women both on and off the pitch.” said Infantino. “Together, we will raise awareness about women’s football and its impact in terms of health, empowerment and positive role models for women and girls around the world.”

The MoU will provide a strong framework for strengthening and further developing synergies between FIFA and UN Women. Both organisations will work closely with public authorities, international organisations, the private sector, and media and sports organisations to make football more accessible to women and girls and to disseminate diverse sports content to promote gender equality.

Major sporting events will also be leveraged to deliver a legacy of positive change at social, political and economic levels to challenge persistent forms of discrimination and stereotypes that hold back progress for all.

“UN Women and FIFA are committed to levelling the playing field for women and girls, leveraging football’s mass appeal to bring positive change around the world. We are confident that this partnership will make a real difference to the gender inequality that we currently see in all sports, and that we are working to end throughout society, knowing that the benefits are for everyone,”said UN Women Executive DirectorPhumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka.

The three key joint areas of work in the MoU are sports policy development, the promotion and support of sustainable projects that will help create a lasting legacy, cultural change and empowerment of women and girls around the world, and communications to raise awareness around gender equality through sport, for example through the support of the FIFA Legends and UN Women Goodwill Ambassadors, as well as major tournaments.The FIFA Women’s Football Convention, where the MoU signing took place, saw leaders from the world of sport and politics assemble to discuss key issues related to the development of women’s football and the societal benefits of football on women and girls around the world.For further information on the FIFA Women’s Football Convention, please click HERE.

Valdez and Sanchez Promise Featherweight Fireworks in Reno on Saturday

Jun 7, 2019

Presser Notes and Quotes: Featherweight World Champion Oscar Valdez Ready for Title Defense Against Fellow Unbeaten Jason Sanchez

Battle of unbeatens headlines Top Rank on ESPN card SATURDAY at Reno-Sparks Convention Center beginning at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT

Undercard begins at 7:30 p.m ET/4:30 p.m. PT on ESPN+

 RENO, Nev. (June 6, 2019) –  Oscar Valdez is set to make the sixth defense of his WBO world featherweight title, and for the third time during his title reign, he will be facing an unbeaten challenger.

Valdez (25-0, 20 KOs), the pride of Nogales, Mexico, will defend his belt against upstart Jason Sanchez (14-0, 7 KOs) Saturday evening from the Reno-Sparks Convention Center in Reno, Nevada. Sanchez is an Albuquerque product who has upset the odds before.

In the eight-round lightweight co-feature, 19-year-old sensation Gabriel Flores Jr. (13-0, 6 KOs) – 35 days removed from his last bout – will fight Salvador Briceno (15-3, 9 KOs). Valdez-Sanchez and Flores-Briceno will be televised live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes beginning at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.

Valdez is now two fights removed from the severely broken jaw he suffered in March of last year against an over-the-weight Scott Quigg. Sanchez burst onto the boxing scene last October, upsetting then-unbeaten Jean Carlos Rivera via 10-round decision in Panama City, Panama. But Sanchez, who received this title shot on a little more than a month’s notice, is ready to tackle the long odds yet again. Valdez bounced back from the broken jaw Feb. 2 in Frisco, Texas, knocking out Carmine Tommasone in seven rounds. 

Two days before the bright lights, Valdez, Sanchez, and Flores met the media at the final press conference. This is what they had to say.

Oscar Valdez

On his second camp with trainer Eddy Reynoso

“We’ve worked very hard in the gym. He’s put the time in. That’s one of the first things I thought could happen knowing he trains Canelo Alvarez, that I might not get the time I deserve in the gym to keep on improving. But on the contrary. We’ve been working very hard. Eddy has been 100 percent dedicated to me, and I can just say thank you to him for putting that time in, him and my father, my manager Frank Espinoza, my whole team.”

“I know Jason Sanchez. I know he’s a tough fighter, and I treat him with as much respect as any fighter out there. A lot of people might not know who he is. Unfortunately, in the boxing world, if you don’t know the opponent, they automatically think it’s an easy fight like he’s a bum, a walk in the park, a sack of potatoes, whatever anybody wants to call it. But I don’t see that. I see a young, hungry fighter with the same dream as any other fighter wants to have, which is become a world champion. I have that target on my back. I take no fighter lightly. I see Jason Sanchez as a strong opponent, and I’m going to do my best to win.”

“I don’t plan on leaving this belt anytime soon. I want to move and improve to bigger and better things. Right now, I got only one guy on my radar, which is Jason Sanchez. I got much respect for him and his team, but once the bell rings, all of that is over. We have to give a good fight for the crowd, for the fans all over the world that are watching. That’s what we plan to do, so I’m very excited for this fight, to be honest.”

“I expect the best from every fighter. I saw him when he fought Jean Carlos Rivera, the Puerto Rican. He put up a good fight. Congratulations to him for his career. He’s doing great. This is a dream every fighter has, fighting for a world title. That only makes me more disciplined in the gym. I work very hard in the gym because I worked hard to get here, and I don’t plan on leaving any time soon. I’m taking this belt back to Mexico.”

Jason Sanchez

“There’s been so much going on {since the Rivera fight}, but it’s awesome. I’ve been working hard. I’m ready.”

“We knew beating Jean Carlos Rivera would mean we’d get more opportunities for more stuff. And, yes, sure enough.”

On getting the call to fight Valdez

“I was excited. We took the fight right away. He’s a tough guy. I’ve seen him fight before, but we’re ready.”

“I just need to fight hard and stay smart and active. Bringing the title home to Albuquerque would mean so much.”

Gabriel Flores Jr.

“Let’s keep the ball rolling. I feel good, I feel confident, and fighting under Oscar Valdez is a big opportunity. I’ve been in his training camp and everything, so it’s great to fight {on the same card} as him. I’m always in the gym. This is my life, day and night. This is what I do, so to fight again, I’m ready.”

On fighting in eight-rounders now

“More mitts, more rounds of sparring, more conditioning. It’s perfect because I’m still in shape from my last fight {May 4}, and we jumped right into training camp. I did enough six-rounders, and here’s the eight-rounder. We’re ready.”
