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.

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 “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
