Unbeaten hot prospect Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez and WBO super bantamweight champion Daniel Ponce de Leon will meet in a ring on June 7 at The Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City as part of the Middleweight Champion Kelly Pavlik-Gary Lockett card on HBO. Lopez (21-0, 19 KOs), a 2004 Puerto Rico Olympian, is the number one contender in the WBO super bantamweight rankings. "I'm very happy for this opportunity and for my first time to fight for a world championship. I'm very well trained and very confident of my habilities to become in a world champion," said Lopez at today's press conference. Ponce de Leon (34-1, 30 KOs), who has six defensas of the 122 lbs. title said "I just want that coming the day of the fight to show my condition. I'll be ready for this fight."

It's okay. There are more attractive opponents for Gerry at Bantamweight. Maybe DPDL is ducking once again.

Gerry is now the most avoided boxer in his division. Ponce de Leon, face Gerry now --- the real deal.

DPDL knows that Gerry might have figured him out and he may get embarrassed by Grand Pa. :)

Gerry isn't getting a rematch because he didn't give Jhonny a rematch. So why should DPDL, Gerry should fight Abner Mares.

Not sure if Mares is ready for Gerry's crafty/veteran ways.

Mares looks to be a future star for sure. But Gerry gave Ponce all he can handle, and should have gotten the decision last year. Abner will be better off getting more experience, etc, etc.
