Guillermo Rigondeaux vs. Moises Flores Added to Ward-Kovalev 2: “The Rematch” PPV Undercard

Apr 19, 2017

GUILLERMO RIGONDEAUX VS. MOISES FLORES

WBA SUPER BANTAMWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

ADDED TO ANDRE WARD VS. SERGEY KOVALEV PAY-PER-VIEW UNDERCARD

 

WARD-KOVALEV 2: “THE REMATCH” SET FOR SATURDAY, JUNE 17, 2017

AT MANDALAY BAY EVENTS CENTER, LAS VEGAS

PRESENTED LIVE BY HBO PAY-PER-VIEW®

NEW YORK, NY (April 19, 2017) – Reigning WBA World Super Bantamweight Champion Guillermo “El Chacal” Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs) will face WBA interim titleholder Moises “Chucky” Flores (25-0, 17 KOs) in a long-awaited mandatory 12-round WBA title defense that will tarnish one fighter’s perfect record. Rigondeaux vs. Flores has officially been added to the Pay-Per-View undercard of Ward-Kovalev 2: “The Rematch” at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on Saturday, June 17. 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.

“I would like to thank Roc Nation Sports, Caribe Promotions and HBO for the opportunity to fight on the biggest Pay-Per-View card of the year. It will be a night of great boxing that fans will not want to miss out on. It’s going to be a chance to show HBO what they want to see. Some say I’m not exciting but it’s not my fault that once my opponents feel my power, they start running and stop throwing punches. Regardless of that, I’m going to give them what they want. I will be standing in the middle of the ring toe-to-toe and putting on a show for the fans. This is where I’ll show the world what my fans got to see in my last fight in the UK against [James] Dickens,” said Rigondeaux. “I want to thank Moises Flores for having the courage to step in the ring with me and accepting the mandatory challenge unlike many great fighters in my division. Moises is an exciting Mexican fighter who will bring a fight. I will be ready to exhibit why I am one of the best pound-for-pound boxers and the world’s best at 122 pounds. I’m ready to give fans the best fight out there, and the best is to come the evening of June 17.”

“I’m very excited to have my world title fight with Guillermo Rigondeaux rescheduled for Saturday, June 17 on HBO Pay-Per-View,” said Flores. “I’d like to thank my team at Probox Management and TGB Promotions along with HBO for providing this opportunity. I never stopped my preparations from the original date and look forward to making the Mexican fans proud when I defeat the great Rigondeaux.”

“Roc Nation Sports is thrilled to add Guillermo Rigondeaux’s championship defense against Moises Flores to the Pay-Per-View undercard of Ward-Kovalev 2: ‘The Rematch’,” said Roc Nation President & Chief of Branding and Strategy Michael R. Yormark. “We know these two champions are ready and eager to put on a big performance on boxing’s biggest stage and undoubtedly, ahead of the most anticipated fight of the year.”

“TGB Promotions is proud of this world title opportunity for Moises ‘Chucky’ Flores as he takes on one of the premier fighters in the sport, Guillermo Rigondeaux,” said Tom Brown, President of TGB Promotions. “Chucky is well prepared and looking forward to making the Mexican fans proud of their new World Champion on June 17.”

Guillermo “El Chacal” Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs), was one of the most celebrated amateur boxers in Cuba before defecting and making his professional debut on May 22, 2009 in Miami, Florida. High expectations had no ill effect on Rigondeaux as he tore through his next five opponents. On November 13, 2010, in just his seventh pro fight, Rigondeaux faced Ricardo Cordoba for the vacant interim WBA World Super Bantamweight title and left the ring with the belt after scoring a split decision victory. Rigondeaux turned his attention to supremacy in the 122-pound division and accomplished what many considered the unthinkable by knocking out WBA World Super Bantamweight Champion Rico Ramos on January 20, 2012, becoming a world champion in fewer than 10 professional bouts. On April 13, 2013 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, Rigondeaux scored his biggest victory to date by defeating WBO and Ring Magazine World Champion and 2012 Fighter of the Year Nonito Donaire. Rigondeaux came away with the victory by unanimous decision after out landing and out punching Donaire throughout the fight to unify titles. In November of 2015, Roc Nation Sports announced that it had signed Rigondeaux to an exclusive promotional agreement and featured him on the HBO Pay-Per-View undercard of the Miguel Cotto vs. Canelo Alvarez mega-fight at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, where he defeated veteran Drian Francisco via a 10-round unanimous decision. Prior to beating Francisco, Rigondeaux was stripped of his title belts due to inactivity, but remained the WBA champion in recess. In May of 2016, Roc Nation Sports announced that Rigondeaux was reinstated of his WBA belt ahead of a 12-round WBA World Super Bantamweight championship showdown against number 13 rated WBA super bantamweight contender Jazza Dickens on July 16 at the Cardiff Ice Arena in Wales. In his first ever appearance in the United Kingdom, Rigondeaux gave fans a thrilling knockout against Dickens. The southpaw landed a big left hook, shattering Dickens’s jaw, halting the fight in the second round with a referee’s decision. Rigondeaux will be raring to go on June 17 in his title defense against interim champion Moises Flores.

Moises “Chucky” Flores (25-0, 17 KOs) learned the fight game growing up in Guadalajara, Mexico, and spent the early years of his professional career building up his résumé in his home country. Now established as a title contender at 122 pounds, Flores looks to climb to the top of the division with his considerable talent. Flores is exceptionally tall for his weight class, measuring in at 5 feet 9 inches. As such, he tends to have a reach advantage over most of his opponents, although Flores isn’t one to merely fire punches from a distance and box from the outside. He likes to mix it up, and his record reflects that, with most of his opponents going down by knockout. Flores made his pro debut in August 2008 with a second round knockout of Oswaldo Salgado in Guadalajara, Mexico. He fought exclusively in Mexico over the first six years of his career and made quick work of most of his opponents. Flores made his U.S. debut in September 2014, winning a six round unanimous decision over Pablo Batres in Mesquite, Texas. He then gained a seventh round technical knockout of Mexican veteran Mario Macias in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in November 2014. That victory set up a 122-pound title shot against interim WBA World Super Bantamweight Champion Oscar Escandon in Carson, California, in April 2015. In an electrifying, all-action brawl, Flores earned a split decision to win the title. In his last two fights, Flores was able to defend the interim WBA World Super Bantamweight title against Luis Emanuel Cusolito, while also adding the IBO World Super Bantamweight title against Paulus Ambunda. Flores looks forward to claiming the full rights to the WBA World Super Bantamweight title on June 17 when he faces current champion Guillermo Rigondeaux in a 12-round championship showdown.

Francisco Silva: Yo no le puedo llamar fracaso

Apr 19, 2017

19 de abril del 2017, Bereavisión-deportes

Francisco Silva: Yo no le puedo llamar fracaso…

Ante la derrota contra Puebla y las declaraciones de Jemez al final de este encuentro, sobre si Cruz Azul aún no termina de aprender de sus errores, este miércoles el jugador Francisco Silva se presentó ante los medios de comunicación, pese a que los Cementeros ya no tiene nada que perder en los próximos encuentros

“Ustedes pueden llamarlo como quieran, yo no puedo llamarlo fracaso, porque se intentó desde el primer partido jugar bien.”

Al cuestionarlo si lo que están viviendo, por el nivel de los jugadores que tienen es un fracaso recalcó que han tenido errores, pero que su desempeño es bueno, simplemente los resultados nos se dieron.

Aunque tres años sin calificar es un golpe duro para la afición y la Máquina Celeste tuvo oportunidades de ganar, pretenden terminar de la mejor manera; dice sentirse frustrado cuando ellos lo intentan todo pero está consiente de las oportunidades que aprovechan los rivales para sacar el marcador a favor

“Lamentablemente no se ha conseguido el triunfo”

Consientes que la directiva puede hacer cambios y cuando no se cumplen los objetivos todo se pone a evaluación, dijo que en lo personal a sentido que fue un torneo no muy bueno para el.

” Es un golpe duro cuando no clasificas…si es duro no clasificar”

“El equipo a jugado bastante bien y no es normal que tenga estos resultados

Al cuestionarle sobre la afición dijo que ellos trabajan de la mejor forma para que la afición no resienta estas derrotas pero hay ciertas cosas que ellos no pueden controlar.

“Paco a hecho un gran trabajo acá.. debería seguir con su proyecto”

A su parecer el trabajo hecho por Jemez no es el problema para que el Cruz Azul no levante.

Por último se le cuestionó su parecer en cuanto a la alza de boletos para el partido contra Chivas en el estadio Azul este fin de semana, si a su parecer es una falta de respeto para su afición tras los resultados, a lo que dijo: creo que ese es un tema que no podría hablar, a mi no me compete.

Valdez de 26 años de edad inicio su 2016 con un espectacular nocaut en el cuarto asalto sobre el ex campeón mundial pluma de la Federación Mundial de Boxeo (FIB) Evgany Gradovich el 9 de abril en Las Vegas en la función en la cual Manny Pacquiao enfrentó a Tim Bradley por tercera vez. Fue la primera vez que Gradovich fue noqueado en su carrera.

            En su más reciente actuación el pasado 5 de noviembre en Las Vegas, el mexicano retuvo su corona con un fulminante nocaut sobre el primer clasificado mundial de la OMB Hiroshige Osawa en el séptimo asalto.

Marriaga (25-1, 21 KOs) de Arjona, Colombia llega a este combate con 15 nocauts en sus últimas 19 peleas. Su única derrota profesional fue por decisión ante Nicholas “Axe Man” Walters en el 2015 en Nueva York, en un pleito por el campeonato de peso pluma de la Asociación Mundial de Boxeo (AMB). Walters ganó la pelea, pero había perdido el cinturón un día antes del pesaje cuando no dio las 126 libras que son el límite de la división de peso pluma. Desde entonces, Marriaga de 30 años de edad ha ganado cinco peleas seguidas incluyendo dos nocauts en sus últimos dos combates sobre Guy Robb y Eduardo Montoya en peleas por el título pluma de la NABO que lo convirtieron en el primer clasificado de la OMB a finales del año pasado.

Spaniard out to make it five wins in a row at Grand Prix of The Americas.

Apr 19, 2017

Spaniard out to make it five wins in a row at Grand Prix of The Americas.

Marc Marquez understands that he faces a fierce fight in Austin, Texas this weekend if he wants to maintain his perfect MotoGP win record at the Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas.

The Spaniard won the first ever race at the Circuit of the Americas in 2013 from pole position as a rookie, then followed up further grid-topping qualifying days with victories in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

This season, however, the Repsol Honda rider has seen emerging star Maverick Viñales open up the campaign by winning the Grand Prix of Qatar and Gran Premio Motul de la República Argentina to build a healthy 37-point championship lead over him.

The 24-year-old Marquez claimed pole position last time out at the Autódromo Termas de Río Hondo to lift his spirits, even if he was forced to retire early in the race following a crash on lap three.

He told Relatos Solidarios, “Maverick’s debut has been unbelievable, the perfect debut. But it was something that everyone could predict a little, this is how it was in the preseason.

“We need a bit of stability because Viñales has won twice already and Valentino (Rossi) has been on the podium twice. Both Yamahas appear to be very competitive.

“If there’s a chance of winning in Austin, I will try. We must learn from the error in Argentina. I insist that a podium finish would be ideal to regain some stability.

“Texas is a circuit that I like. I like the layout of the track, as it has many different types of sections and corners and lots of elevation changes.”

Meanwhile Viñales knows all too well that he must not get complacent with the likes of Marquez, Rossi, Andrea Dovizioso, Scott Redding and Cal Crutchlow all poised to take advantage of any lapse in concentration.

The Yamaha rider explained, “We’re going to work hard. Texas is a really good track for me, I always feel really good [with the] changes of direction, fast corners and hard braking.”
