Mike Tyson answers USA Boxing
LOS ANGELES Chivas USA have long desired a home of their own, and with their lease agreement to play at the StubHub Center expiring following the 2014 season, they need to do something about it. They’ve been looking around for a good five or six years now, surveying possibilities in and around Los Angeles, and if there isn’t a hard deadline to make a decision of some sort, a soft deadline is soon approaching. Club management would like to have a more clear idea of things before the end of the year, but options are limited and somewhat complicated. They range from a chance at a new stadium adjacent to the iconic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum all the way to the eastern suburb of Pomona, where theres land potentially for the taking, but no stadium in site. They’ve looked intently at five sites in their search for a new home, but its not yet clear which site presents the best, most realistic option, or if an even better location might present itself for a short or long-term solution. We do need to look at different options, and that’s what we’re doing actively right now, Dennis te Kloese, the sporting president of Chivas USA and mother club Club Deportivo Guadalajara , told MLSsoccer.com. To predict something on where we are after this season and, most important, after next season is still a little bit up in the air. We’re actively looking at different options, looking into what’s best for our ownership, best for our team, and best for our family. — (USA Today Sports) — Not enough has gone right for Chivas USA since they arrived in MLS for the 2005 season, under the ownership of CD Guadalajara owner Jorge Vergara and his initial partner, Antonio Cue. Branding went somehwhat awry the Chivas moniker didn’t move the huge SoCal fan bases of Club America, Monarcas Morelia, Pumas UNAM, Cruz Azul, Santos Laguna and other Guadalajara rivals and the roster, heavy on second-division Mexican players and with only aging winger Ramon Ramirez a recognizable star, didn’t entice the many here who root for Guadalajara. Worse, Chivas USA failed to deliver on one of their initial promises: to bring a Mexican brand of soccer to the US professional game. They finished 4-22-6 in their first season, and a portion of their potential audience tuned out.

Story Butler said the money being offered is “pennies on the dollar” of what the prospects could be worth with an Olympic medal. Mignano confirmed that Iron Mike Promotions signed the Florida fighter on his 18th birthday, which was Tuesday. Lubin is a two-time Junior Olympic national champion and won the 152-pound division at the National Golden Gloves this year. In his USA Boxing bio, Lubin listed as his goals winning an Olympic gold, turning pro and winning every title possible. Tyson defended the signing of Lubin, saying it “was solely his decision and based on consultation and input from his advisors.” Tyson reminded Butler in the letter that the former heavyweight champ himself turned pro at age 18 and “had a very successful professional career.” “No one knows better than I the pitfalls of amateur and professional boxing,” Tyson wrote. “This is precisely why I am compelled to make Iron Mike Productions a transparent company. Our priority is the well-being of our fighters and to produce the most exciting fights we can and in the process uplift the sport of boxing. “I love my country and I love the liberties living in a democracy affords. These young fighters have worked diligently and deserve the right to pursue the best path they deem fit for themselves. Unfortunately, many of them can’t wait around for a very slim shot at Olympic glory.” Tyson was left off the 1984 Olympic boxing team after losing a close decision in the trials. “Our country hasn’t had a male boxing gold medalist since 2004 [Andre Ward], which could be why many young hopefuls decide to turn professional sooner,” Tyson wrote. “Many of these boxers are like me in that they are from poverty stricken communities and boxing is their only way to a better life. They have obligations beyond your personal vision for them. No one has the right to question the path a fighter chooses in pursuit of their American dream. “I will always be supportive of amateur boxing and will continue helping in any way possible.
