WBC Asian champion Neeraj Goyat moved closer to an Olympic berth after he entered the semifinal round of the International Boxing Associations Olympic Qualifying Tournament for professional boxers in Vargas, Venezuela on Monday. Jeremiah Attaochu Jersey .The 24-year-old Neeraj (69kg) defeated Greeces Dimitrios Poulikos Tsagkrakos 3-0 and will be up against second-seeded German Arajik Marutjan, a former European Championships silver-medallist in the semifinal round on Thursday.Neeraj will be assured of an Olympic berth if he wins the next bout. In case he loses, he will still have a chance of qualifying for Rio through the box-off between the losing semifinalists.However, the other Indians in the fray, Gaurav Bidhuri (52kg) and Dilbag Singh (81kg) lost their bouts, missing their chance on the Olympics.While Dilbag was beaten 1-2 by Moldovas Petru Ciobanu in the prelims, Gaurav lost to Ukraines Maksym Fatych in the quarterfinal round.The competition has 26 Rio quotas to offer -- three in every weight category except heavyweight (91kg) and super heavyweight (91+kg), from which only the winners will earn an Olympic spot.The tournament features boxers from AIBAs own professional events -- the World Series of Boxing (WSB) and AIBA Pro Boxing (APB) -- besides pro boxers from all over the world.However, none of the big names in the pro circuit have made themselves available for the event, citing reasons ranging from fitness, lack of time for preparation and the threat of sanctions by their promoters and licensing bodies like the WBO and the IBA.So far, three Indian boxers -- Shiva Thapa (56kg), Manoj Kumar (64kg) and Vikas Krishan (75kg) -- have booked their tickets for the Olympics through qualifiers for amateurs. Junior Seau Jersey . Sgt. Eric ONeal says most of the arrests at Monday nights game were for public drunkenness, though one person was taken into custody on suspicion of trying to steal a seat from the stadium. Casey Hayward Jersey . Its the second straight game Bell has scored in extra time for Kelowna, which beat the Brandon Wheat Kings 6-5 on Friday, and he now has four game-winning goals on the season. http:///...r-pulley-jersey.html .

Making his first appearance since injuring his wrist a month ago, Del Potro had difficulty with his service games in the first set. Alex Valle is a busy man this week. The CEO of Level|Up is preparing for the companys biggest event of the year and a landmark in the fighting game tournament scene: SoCal (Southern California) Regionals on Oct. 14-16. He sat with me to discuss the preparation of the event, the growth and the potential surprises yet to come.This years iteration is at the Esports Arena in Santa Ana, California for the first time. In addition to the arena space, the street outside of the arena will be closed off for more tournament setups and a block party.Were trying new things and stepping outside the norm, Valle said. It could be amazing or a failure, but we wanted to step out of the label just another major by adding new things and attractions.Not only will the tournament provide plenty of entertainment for spectators and players alike, it will also be a high-stakes competitive battleground. SoCal Regionals Street Fighter V tournament will be one of the last Capcom Pro Tour Premier Events and should be a slugfest as last-minute hopefuls aim to punch their ticket into the tour finals in December. In addition, it will also be one of the last qualifiers for the North American King of the Iron Fist Tournament for Tekken 7 and a qualifier spot for the Killer Instinct World Cup. The incentives will be plenty for those that need their spots and practice before the big-time finales begin.With eight different games, the issue with space was the main challenge for SoCal Regionals. In the past, the tournament was played in ballrooms or convention centers in rural areas with plenty of room. The Esports Arena will not have the luxury of all that space, but there might be upsides to the situation.Its challenging to work on a smaller venue, Valle said. We scaled back based on the space, but there are also not a lot of players playing a lot of games. Last year, the venue was frustrating because there was too much space, but a tighter venue will allow players to have more interaction with one another. Nigel Harris Jersey. I asked Valle what his favorite games to watch this weekend are and he listed Street Fighter V, Mortal Kombat XL, King of Fighters 14 and Tekken 7. He cited the ridiculous amount of talent competing for each game in addition to the prizes. Valle had struggled with deciding the tournaments lineup because there were so many games to include, but added that games needed good support and growth to confirm a spot.This will be the hardest Street Fighter tournament in SoCal Regionals history -- there will be over 20 international players, Valle said. It will be fun to watch the local regulars, [who are part of] one of the strongest regions in the country, step up to the international talent.Valle believes that Southern California is not only one of the top destination for Street Fighter talent, but was the strongest region for King of Fighters players. He said that any of their players could travel anywhere and take a top-three spot in a tournament. As for the growth for both Mortal Kombat and Tekken, there was nothing short of pride for the tournament organizer when either game was mentioned.Im excited to see the interest in Tekken; its tripled out previous numbers. Im not sure why that is, maybe its the return to 1v1 because Tekken Tag did not pick up for the new guys, Valle said. Im glad Warner Bros. and NetherRealms ran it back with the support. It will be the first time that all the top killers will be coming. Its going to be a bloodbath for that title.SoCal Regionals is on the cusp of innovation, but the competition and the prestige remain as high as ever. It will be more than just a Street-Fighter-plus-other-games tournament and the players will prove that this weekend.
