Ponce De Leon vs. Mares Clash on 4/20 on Showtime

By Miguel Rivera

Abner Mares (25-0-1, 13KOs) is moving up to face one of the most feared fighters in boxing. An agreement was reached for Mares to challenge WBC featherweight champion Daniel Ponce De Leon (44-4, 35KOs) on April 20th in a Showtime televised fight at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California.

Mares vacated his WBC super bantamweight title earier this year after being unable to secure a unification clash with WBO champion Nonito Donaire. Ponce De Leon was going to fight this coming Saturday but his match was canceled when challenger Jayson Velez withdrew with an injury. Ponce captured the WBC title last September with technical decision over Jhonny Gonzalez.

As part of the April card, a welterweight fight is being put together between Marcos Maidana and Josesito Lopez.

ponce wins this because of his awkward style and his willingness to fight, lol, i love these fighters equally but ponce isnt avoided for no reason

Mares da man!!! but I think Gary Russell is going to take over the 126 lbs division.

Wow pretty damn good couple of fights. Mares vs Ponce is going to be great and action packed and then you add Lopez vs Marcos to that. Great card.

Prop to Mares this is a huge risk. I think he gets KTFO by De Leon style wise, and base on their stregnths, either Mares Low-Blows his way to victory or he is doomed!!
