When Daniel Ponce De Leon (43-4) steps in the ring on September 15th against WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez (52-7), he will be a signficant underdog. The fight takes place underneath the Saul "Canelo" Alvarez versus Josesito Lopez main event at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV. Ponce De Leon has been an underdog before but remains confident that he will beat Gonzalez (52-7) who is riding a 12 fight winning streak.

"He is a good fighter. I have heard people say he has a weak chin and we have seen him get knocked out but I am not thinking about that. That is his problem but I am not going in looking for the knockout. I am going to go in there and do my job and come out with the win," Ponce told BoxingScene.com, who visited the former WBO super bantamweight champion at his Big Bear, California training camp.

Ponce De Leon, who hails from the state of Chihuahua in Mexico, made seven defenses of his title before being knocked out in the first round of his June 2008 fight against Juan Manuel Lopez in Atlantic City, NJ. A victory over Gonzalez will return Ponce De Leon to prominence and set up a lot of interesting fights in the loaded featherweight division.

"I have always been on top. I was a champion at super bantamweight and I will be a champion again at featherweight. That is why I started boxing as a kid, to be on top.

"I am concentrating on this fight. After this fight is done I will fight against anybody. It doesn't matter who it is against," Ponce De Leon revealed.

Ponce De Leon promised that the all Mexican showdown will be a war and that the fans will be in for a great show. "The fans won't want to miss this fight. It will be a great fight for all the fans. I want to thank all of the fans for their support and remind them to watch the fight."

Good undercard fight. Gonzalez has been a beast ever since Nacho has been in his corner. I give him the edge in this fight.

I really like this fight, it's gonna be a war. Both guys always come to fight and give it a good effort. I like Deleon by knockout late in the fight, lets say the tenth round.

I totally agree, he got jipped on that one.

Well, Ponce, regardless, you definitely beat Broner for the WBO Inter-Continental Super Featherweight strap. :cop:
