Former champion Daniel Ponce De Leon (41-3, 34KOs) is targeting a showdown with newly crowned WBC feathweight king, Jhonny Gonzalez (48-7, 42KOs). Ponce De Leon told BoxingScene.com - "I want that fight. It's a good fight for me."
Golden Boy Promotions is interested in making that fight. Ponce De Leon will fight on the Saul Alvarez-Ryan Rhodes undercard on June 18 in Guadalajara, Mexico. A fight with Gonzalez is unlikely for June. If all goes well in Guadalajara, Alvarez is going to return on September 17 on HBO pay-per-view, and Ponce De Leon is a possibility for that card as well. Golden Boy would like to make the fight between Ponce and Gonzalez for the September card.
