Miguel Roman Retires Daniel Ponce De Leon With TKO

By Miguel Rivera

At 1 minute and 50 seconds into the ninth round, Miguel Román ended the long career of former champion Daniel Ponce De Leon at Ciudad Cuauhtémoc in Chihuahua, Mexico - and captured the vacant WBC (USNBC) silver super featherweight word title. Ponce De Leon suffered his third TKO defeat in his last four fights and announced his retirement after the match. Roman landed hard punches all night and opened up a cut above the right eyebrow of Ponce De Leon. The wars of his long career were too much and Ponce De Leon was unable to hold off a strong, hungry power puncher in Roman. Ponce De Leon's record falls to 45-7, 35KOs, and 28-year-old Roman goes to 46-11, 35KOs.
