Mexico Exports Boxing To Asia

Mexico has long favoured the sport since the post-revolutionary period when individuals would box for sport and survival in boxcars formally linked to the rail lines that aided the revolution.

Risky Japanese Opponent: Ryoto Murata

Ryoto Murata is Japan’s best middleweight and will not be a walk in the park for Canelo, whose making a dangerous return to the 160 weight class.

Both fighters are in their prime, with both being recognizable names in different markets and likely providing fireworks for the first few rounds minimally. Canelo may be looking to unify in the 160 lb middleweight class.

Murata was a three time olympic medalist for Japan, while he maintains a respectable record, displaying both power and finesse in his boxing.

Solid combinations from all angles secured a world title for the Chicano from Los Angeles, California. Joseph ‘JoJo’ Diaz is now the new IBF junior lightweight title champion. Tonight, Diaz pulled off an upset against the more favoured boxing veteran Tevin Farmer.

JoJo Diaz struggled less to make the 130lb weight as he appears more energized at this new weight. Consistently, Diaz landed body shots which were not countered by Farmer, whose known more for a defensive style. Still, he did not evade or bother with movement in this fight with Jo Jo. Instead, Farmer’s corner told him to box head to head.

Diaz was applauded for the accuracy of his body shots. Unfortunately, Farmer did not stay on his toes nor make much use of his jab. This allowed Diaz to land crisp body shots throughout their bout.

At 12 rounds, the fight went the distance with Diaz securing a unanimous decision, but Farmer leaving without being KO.

Curiously, Tevin Farmer kept blinking most of tonight. Looking up at the time, Farmer would blink frequently and seem almost distracted. Lou De Bella, his promoter, eventually, took Farmer to the hospital.

Ex-Drug War Czar In Mexico Plotted To Kill Journalist

As the trial against Genaro Garcia Luna unfolds in a NY federal court, new details are emerging about what this favorite US ally was actually up to when he was both head of Mexico’s domestic security agency (Mexico’s version of the FBI) from 2001 to 2005 and a key strategist for Felipe Calderon’ phony drug war from 2006 to 2011 in Mexico’s equivalent of the Homeland Security agency.

In New York, Garcia Luna is facing corruption and drug-trafficking charges in the US. In Mexico, his money has been frozen while his trial is set to begin in early April 2020. He has entered a plea of ‘Not Guilty’, while many had originally anticipated that he would negotiate.

The details that will emerge during the trial should clarify what activities the government was long aware he participated in while a favorite Obama administration ally.

Anabel Hernandez Threatened by Garcia Luna

Anabel Hernandez in DW interview

One such activity alleges Anabel Hernandez is plotting her assassination. A member of the US DEA contacted Hernandez to notify her that an open contract was taken out on her life in 2017. The money and order for her potential killing was alleged to come from Garcia Luna. For years, Hernandez has used private security and government security too.

The first trace of evidence for these and other claims lies in the arrest of Ivan Reyez Arzate, an intelligence aide who followed Garcia Luna from his tenure under the corrupt Vicente Fox administration to the Felipe Calderon administration. In a US federal court, Reyez Arzate declared in 2018 that Garcia Luna and others would divide millions in drug cartel kickbacks.

Reyez Arzate was also in close contact with hit squads tasked with targeting rival cartels, witnesses and journalists who reported on any aspect of government corruption.

DEA & ATF Complicity: Fast & Furious Scandal

While contacts between the criminal underworld and Garcia Luna occurred in parallel, the Sinaloa Cartel has long been alleged to have also had links and contacts with the DEA. From 1998 to today, they have established a working relationship with American federal agents in exchange for protection and intelligence on other drug cartels.

You can see some of our earlier coverage on that topic here: “Fast & Furious“.

The ATF in 2010 was discovered to have trafficked over 2000 guns in a bid to track them for intelligence purposes. The operation was called ‘Fast & Furious’. Rather coincidentally, they mostly fell into the hands of the Sinaloa Cartel, which would establish a quid pro quo relationship between middle and high level operatives of the US federal government and the Sinaloa Cartel. Mexico still remains in flames because of these policies.

Importance of Conserving Chicano Identity Recognized At UCLA: Los Tigres Del Norte Foundation

The UCLA Chicano Research Center has continued to preserve key aspects of Chicano culture. Creative efforts have leveraged resources from within the community to preserve identity and memory of Chicano culture. An interesting excerpt from an LA Times article here notes how a class based bifurcation occurs within the Chicano community, which is often exploited by conservative forces.

“The Mexican labels didn’t think poor people bought records,” Strachwitz says. “What the American labels understood, and still understand, is that poor Mexicans in the U.S. are strongly connected to their music and will spend all they have to buy it.”

Because it is so often associated with poor people and immigrants, much Mexican regional folk music, modern and historic, remains a source of ridicule for assimilated middle- and upper-class Latinos, including many in Los Angeles, according to Hernandez.

For that reason, he says, it is much more common to find assimilated and educated Chicanos dancing to Cuban son, Puerto Rican salsa or Spanish-language rock than to corridos or norteños–because the other genres are associated with middle- and upper-class values.

The article recalls when a UCLA researcher connected an effort to preserve a vast collection of Chicano music and paired it with the financing from superstars, los Tigres del Norte.

Genaro Garcia Luna Enters Not Guilty Plea; Trial Date For April 5th 2019

Genaro García Luna, the former security director for the Government of Mexico, was arrested in Dallas last month for drug trafficking and bribery, as well as for lying to immigration authorities over corrupt practices while in office in Mexico.

Long Career Meant Easy Access

Garcia Luna was in charge of the AFI (Agency for Federal Investigation) in Mexico from 2001 to 2005, Mexico’s domestic intelligence agency and equivalent to the MI5 services in England or General Directorate for Internal Security in France.

Then, from 2006 to 2012, Garcia Luna was placed in charge of all security operations related to policing, allowing him to design a federal police force that was later supplanted … by another Federal Police force. The tasks of both forces was to develop anti-drug trafficking and anti-kidnapping efforts. He worked closely with Televisa once to fake a kidnapping rescue, using the actually arrested kidnappers for the staged event.

From 2012 to 2018, Garcia Luna enjoyed business ties with former members of various US intelligence agencies. He was seeking to develop a private consulting outfit for the purpose of training global police forces in anti-drug trafficking efforts. In all likelihood, the operation was probably a new venue to launder ill gotten funds.

High Level Witness

As an official, he was also working for the Sinaloa Cartel. He has entered a plea of not guilty in a NY federal court, but the testimony from the son and brother of Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada could be damning and classified documents could prove the case.

Scientology Rape Victim & Family Harassed

Recently, the husband of Chrissie Carnell Bixler (actor/model) took to social media to denounce harassment of their family from the Church of Scientology. Mrs Carnell Bixler is unfortunately one of the several (4 to our knowledge) that has accused Danny Masterson of rape. Masterson is an actor who has ties to the Church of Scientology.

Only Carnell-Bixler has gone public with her allegations, but these were (eventually) taken more seriously after much advocacy from her musician husband and public outrage (Source: Time).

The series of allegations were deemed serious enough for the actor to be dismissed from the Netflix show ‘The Ranch’ in 2017.

Pets Poisoned

On Instagram, Cedric Bixler Zavala (family man/singer for At The Drive In and Mars Volta) showed a piece of meat wrapped in a well known rat poison that his dog ingested. According to the singer, the meat was placed by someone linked to the Church of Scientology for the dog to find and eat. The practice is not uncommon as other COS related victims have claimed similar treatment from private investigators (Source: CBS). Even journalists have claimed retribution.

Pet Killed By Rat Poison

The poison was also found and documented by the singer.
