Daniel Ponce De Leon: I Won at Least Seven Rounds!

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Former champion Daniel Ponce De Leon (41-3, 34KOs) was not happy with the scorecards presented by the judges on Saturday night at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Ponce De Leon lost a ten round unanimous decision to super featherweight Adrien Broner (20-0, 16KOs). The scores were 96-94, 96-94 and 99-91.

Ponce De Leon moved up in weight for the opportunity to face Broner. A win would have presented him with some lucrative opportunities. Ponce De Leon said he was never hurt in the contest and felt that he won most of the rounds.

"I felt the difference in the weight.  I am a 126-pound fighter and gave up a lot to fight at 130-pounds.  I didn't feel Broner's power and I believe that I won seven of the ten rounds," Ponce De Leon said.

Didn't even keep score of this fight and you didn't have to. lol Ponce won on activity alone. Broner must have felt something in those early rounds that got him shook because he wasn't doing **** until later in the…

Worst case senario for Ponce would of been a draw. IMO I am glad to see people here on BS giving the right man credit.

the fight was very ugly and somewhat boring, but Ponce won without a doubt. Hate these horrible decisions that rob a fighter of all his hard work. Broner looked like an idiot dancing afterward too.
