Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. is tabbing Daniel Ponce De Leon to knock Juan Manuel Lopez out in four rounds later tonight in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. Several years ago, Juanma became a player when he knocked out Ponce De Leon in the first round for the WBO super bantamweight crown. The rematch is taking place at super featherweight.
Vazquez and Juanma are no strangers to trading words. The two Puerto Rico boxers are far from friends. Promoter Peter Rivera of PR Best Boxing mentioned a date of August 25th for a possible fight between Juanma and Vazquez, but Vazquez denies that information.
"Both of them have been exploited and we'll see what happens. Juanma could have luck and perhaps he lands a punch and knocks him out, but I believe Ponce De Leon will get a knockout by the fourth round. I want the public to know through this interview that they should not allow themselves to be misled by Rivera and PR Best Boxing or the team of Juanma, because a fight [between us] will not happen," Vazquez said.
