Porfirio Muñoz anuncia retiro de la Mesa Directiva

Sep 5, 2019

5 de Septiembre de 2019, (Ciudad de México).

El pasado 3 de septiembre en la sesion ordinaria de la Cámara de Diputados, Porfirio Muñoz Ledo anunció su renuncia a la Mesa Directiva del Pleno.

En días anteriores al no haberse alcanzado la mayoría calificada para aprobar el acuerdo sobre la próxima integración de los representantes del Congreso, el morenista continuó con el cargo y así inició la Primera Sesion Ordinaria de la Sexagésima Cuarta Legislatura, donde además recibió el escrito del Primer Informe de Gobierno.

Tras las manifestaciones de total inconformidad principalmente por parte del PAN, -sucesores constitucionales-, y PRI, en desacuerdo por la reforma impulsada por Morena para retener el poder del órgano directivo, Porfirio tomó la decisión de dejar la presidencia.

“Seguiré siendo un luchador a la par de ustedes por la democracia, toda mi vida he pensado que la principal virtud de un político es la congruencia. También que se puede tener el poder y no pasar a la historia, se puede pasar a la historia sin tener el poder”, mencionó.

La noticia se recibió con aplausos y halagos hacia el diputado. Mientras que Gerardo Fernández Noroña, calificó de “falsas” e “hipócritas” las expresiones de los parlamentarios opositores.

TIJUANA, MEXICO (Sept. 4, 2019): Jaime Munguia (33-0, 26 KOs) hosted a media workout yesterday in his hometown of Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico ahead of defending his WBO Junior Middleweight World Title in a 12-round bout against African warrior Patrick Allotey (40-3, 30 KOs). The young star was joined by his trainer Erik Morales, along with Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy, and Fernando Beltran, CEO of Zanfer Promotions. The event will take place on Saturday, Sept. 14 atDignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif. and will be streamed live on DAZN. Below is what yesterday’s participants had to say at the media workout: Jaime Munguia, WBO Junior Middleweight World Champion:“For this camp, we’ve been working on keeping my hands up, moving my waist and using lateral movement. That’s what we have been practicing every day with my new trainer Erik Morales. Erik and I had known each other from before, but I never thought that I’d be training with him. Things happen for a reason, and I think it’s for the best.”

“Erik and I have a good relationship, and we get along well. We’re happy when we’re working with each other as I have been with my father and other trainers as well. Erik brings a lot of intelligence to camp. He knows what to do in the ring. He knows how to work on defense, and he gives me a lot of advice regarding what to do in a fight. It comes with his experience, and of course I execute what he says when I am in the ring. It has been really good.” Erik Morales, Hall of Famer and Trainer to Jaime Munguia“In Jaime Munguia’s last fight, he was criticized a lot. He showed vulnerabilities in his defense. However, he has a lot of potential. He’s young, strong and can hit very hard. We haven’t changed much. Rather, we’ve strengthened his combinations and focused on his offense. We’ve made some minor changes in his defense, but it will nevertheless make the a difference.” “We weren’t friends before working together, but we thought well of each other. When we’d see each other, we would greet each other happily. Now that we are together, we have a very cordial relationship. When you bring a new voice into a corner, it can be tough at first. But when you find a way to listen and you see that things are going your way, it can be a calming experience. If there’s any advice that I’d give to Jaime, it’s to listen to his corner, pay attention and let us help him.” Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy:“I like what I see in Jaime Munguia now that he has the legendary Erik Morales in his corner. He’s having him sit down more on his punches. Before, he was on his toes too much. Now he has him sitting on his punches and throwing combinations. At the same time, he is moving his head and being smart, so I like what I see.” “I’m expecting Jaime to box a little bit, but I also expect him to be more aggressive and throw combinations. Fighters today don’t throw as many combinations. They want to knock people out with one punch. But it’s not the first punch that knocks you out-it’s the third or fourth punch. I like Jaime is being more aggressive and throwing more combinations. We’ll see what happens on Sept. 14.” Fernando Beltran, CEO of Zanfer Promotions:“Jaime Munguia is improving a lot with Erik Morales. There are a lot of similarities between them. Both guys came from Tijuana and were undefeated when they became world champions at only 21 years of age. They both started with their fathers as well. This team will do a lot in boxing. I see Jaime Munguia is improving his defense and on not throwing punches for the sake of throwing them. He’s thinking more in there. He’s improving a lot.” “Erik Morales has a lot to prove as a trainer. As a former fighter, he has a lot of knowledge, which he can now pass down to other fighters who are coming up. They get along very well. We are very happy to have put them together and that they are getting along so well. We’re also happy with Jaime’s improvement. We just saw him moving his head in sparring and throwing a lot of punches. He’s not jumping as much. I really like it.” Munguia vs. Allotey is a 12-round fight for the WBO Junior Middleweight Championship presented by Golden Boy in association with Zanfer Promotions. The event is sponsored by Tecate, “THE OFFICIAL BEER OF BOXING,” Hennessy “Never Stop. Never Settle,” and Orange Crush. The event will take place Saturday, Sept. 14 at Dignity Health Sports Park and will be streamed live on DAZN.

Unbeaten Heavyweight Contender Agit Kabayel Signs Promotional Deal with Top Rank

Sep 5, 2019

(Sept. 4, 2019) —European heavyweight kingpin Agit Kabayel is coming to America.

Kabayel (19-0, 13 KOs) has signed a promotional contract with Top Rank, which will co-promote his bouts with SES Boxing. He is ranked No. 4 by the IBF and No. 9 by both the WBO and WBC.

Kabayel made three defenses of the European heavyweight title before vacating the crown to pursue opportunities stateside. He will make his Top Rank debut on an ESPN platform in either late 2019 or early 2020.

“My American Dream has come true,” Kabayel said. “I can’t wait to showcase my skills in the U.S. and on ESPN. As the European champion, the time is now to go all in and achieve my lifetime goal of becoming the first German world heavyweight champion since the great Max Schmeling.”

“We are delighted to join forces with Bob Arum and Top Rank to present Agit Kabayel on ESPN, the biggest sports platform in the world,” said SES Boxing President Benedikt Poelchau. 

“Agit is ready for the world’s best heavyweights, and at only 26 years of age, the best is yet to come. Like all great fighters, Agit wants to make his mark in America,” said Ulf Steinforth, founder of SES Boxing. 

Kabayel, who was born in Germany to Kurdish parents, has fought 14 of his 19 pro bouts in his home country. An eight-year pro, Kabayel won the vacant European crown in February 2017 with a 12-round unanimous decision over Herve Hubeaux. Nine months later, he scored his most high-profile victory, a majority decision over perennial contender Derek Chisora. A seasoned veteran who has sparred lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and former unified champion Anthony Joshua, Kabayel opened his 2019 campaign March 2 with an impressive unanimous decision over Andriy Rudenko in Magdeburg, Germany.

U.S. Women’s National Team 3, Portugal 0 – 2019 USWNT Victory Tour

Sep 5, 2019

USWNT ADDS TO THE RECORD BOOKS WITH 3-0 WIN VS. PORTUGAL IN THIRD MATCH OF 2019 VICTORY TOUR PRESENTED BY ALLSTATE

Carli Lloyd Notches 20th Career Multi-Goal Game with Pair of First Half Strikes; 
Lindsey Horan’s Goal and Kristen Hamilton’s USWNT Debut Highlight Second Half; 
Victory Ties Jill Ellis with Tony DiCicco for Most All-Time USWNT Wins; 
Victory Tour Will Continue vs. Korea Republic on Oct. 3 in Charlotte, N.C. and Oct. 6 in Chicago

ST. PAUL, Minnesota (Sept. 3, 2019) – The U.S. Women’s National Team continued its 2019 Victory Tour presented by Allstate with a commanding 3-0 win against Portugal before a sellout crowd of 19,600 at Allianz Field. Carli Lloyd led a rampant U.S. attack by registering her 20th career multi-goal game as she scored two first half goals to set the USA on the path to victory. Lindsey Horan’s goal in the final minutes capped what was USWNT head coach Jill Ellis’ 105th career win in charge of the team, a mark that ties her with the late great Tony DiCicco for the most in program history. 

The USA once again put on an impressive display, amassing more than 60 percent possession on nearly 500 passes, while out-shooting the visitors 21-1. An invigorated Portugal defense that played very low and compact held out longer than in the teams’ recent record-breaking encounter in Philadelphia before conceding the first goal just after the 20-minute mark.

Lloyd tucked in the game’s first goal in the 22nd minute after a wild scramble in front of the net that was set off by a Julie Ertz cross that was partially cleared and then mishit back into danger by a Portugal defender. Lloyd’s initial attempt to convert the misplayed ball was bravely saved by Portugal goalkeeper Ines Pereira before falling for Jessica McDonald to have a go but her attempt was also thwarted by Pereira. The lose ball then fell to Lloyd who made no mistake from close range to make it 1-0.

From the ensuing kickoff, the U.S. won the ball back and drove upfield where McDonald crashed a header off the crossbar. The U.S. attack kept churning out chances as a long-range blast from Samantha Mewis drew a strong save from Pereira near the half-hour mark. She did well to recover in time to then making a second solid stop on Tobin Heath, who was on hand to put the rebound on frame.

Heath then earned the penalty kick as she was chopped down in the left corner of the penalty area after a nifty dribble from which Lloyd bagged her second goal in the 32nd minute. The two talented attackers combined on a quick move into Portugal’s offensive third with Lloyd playing Heath into a one-v-one situation that she used to draw the foul. Lloyd dispatched the spot kick with ease into the upper right side of the net for her 117th career goal.

The game proceeded throughout the second half as it had in the first 45 with substitute Christen Press nearly lifting a shot over Pereira a few minutes into the second half after her great run was rewarded with a beautiful feed from Lloyd.

Press was denied a second time in the 52nd on a thunderous blast from the top of the box before McDonald headed the rebound off the bar for a second time. Ten minutes later it was Horan who rang the bar with a fierce drive from distance. She would not be denied later in the match, but in the intervening minutes, Ellis handed forward Kristen Hamilton her USWNT debut in the 76th minute as she became the 80th player to earn a call-up under the legendary U.S. coach and 29th to receive her first cap. 

The U.S. finished the night off with a textbook set-piece goal. Press lofted a corner kick from the right side into the heart of the Portugal box where Horan perfectly timed her run to meet the ball and head it into over the ‘keeper to put an exclamation point on yet the record-tying victory for the USWNT.

Next on the Schedule: The WNT players return to their NWSL clubs and the final push for the playoffs before continuing the Victory Tour next month with two games against Korea Republic. The first match will be played at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. on Oct. 3 (8 p.m. ET; FS1, TUDN) and the second at Soldier Field in Chicago on Oct. 6 (2 p.m. CT; ESPN).
