By Carlos Mario Colmenero, notifight.com   

Former 2000 Sydney Olympian and former champion, Mexico's Daniel Ponce De Leon, will fight on the Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr.-Miguel "Junito" Cotto undercard on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Ponce De Leon (42-4, 35 KOs) is training in Los Angeles, California.

"We do not know who [I'm fighting right now] but I'm positive that I'll fight on May 5 in Las Vegas on the undercard of Cotto and Mayweather," said the former super bantamweight champion of the World Boxing Organization Boxing (WBO).

Ponce added that although there are still five weeks to go - "time goes fast and that's why I'm training every day at the gym of Maywood, Los Angeles, under the supervision of Yuquita Morales, of Mexicali, and Alejandro Villalon."
