Former champion Daniel Ponce De Leon, 33-years-old, could possibly retire from boxing after suffering a second round TKO defeat at the hands of Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez on Saturday night in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. Back in 2008, Ponce De Leon (45-6, 35KOs) was knocked out by Juanma in one round when they were super bantamweights. It was Ponce De Leon's second TKO defeat in two fights.

"I think it is time to sit down with my family. There are things I can do outside of boxing. Also, I've already had my time in this sport. I'll speak to my family," Ponce De Leon told Carlos Narvaez.

Ponce De Leon says he was hurt by Juanma but managed to recover by the time referee Luis Pabon stopped the match.

"Juanma has a strong punch. I came to win but he has a heavy left hook. I felt very strong, but when the referee [stopped the fight] I had already recovered. Now let's see what happens. I do not know what I'll do. I'll talk to my family," he said.

Well, he did just get stopped by Juanma. And we all know how much Juanma has fallen off. I can't blame ponce.

[QUOTE=omyblaze57]How crazy people is calling fighter "shot", after 3 loses against two boxers that could easily beat anyone at their weights (Salido and Mikey, who is a top 10 p4p fighter). Give the guy a break geez! Also, Ponce de Leon was too much for Juanma 3 days ago, now he's a shot fighter...

Sad to see him go, but glad he's got the smarts to take a bow. It made me smile to read that Ponce has other things outside of boxing. Good luck to this warrior, wherever his road might lead him.

[QUOTE=STAX ON DECK]ponce is a joke[/QUOTE] Yea, and worst of all is that your hero got a gift against him. How hard does that make you want to cry? :lol1:
