This fight is schedule for the undercard of Kelly Pavlik vs Gary Lockett and I give the undefeated Lopez a good chance at the upset. HBO June 7, 2008

Lopez is a good prospect. But I don't think he's ready for a guy like De Leon. I see Lopez going out like Rey Bautista

Thats exactly what I was gonna say. I dont know man, maybe hes been rushed in like Bautista. Ponce de Leon might be a little limited but hes undeniably world-class

When was the last fight de leon was in? Was it undercard of FLoyd/Ricky? Cause in that fight I didn't get a good look at him. The dude fighting him was being a total pansy. He should have been deducted a few points for senseless clinching.

Based on the fact that a non puncher hasnt hurt him. unlike bautista.
He sure does look better than Bautista.. ITs all up to how prepared he really is to take on a guy like Ponce De Leon, cuz if he isnt hes gonna take a punishment, not saying hell be blasted like bautista, but it aint gonna be pretty for him...

Most prospects are hungry when they get their shot. The question is whether hes ready to eat the meal or not, because its a supersize one.

Lopez is a great prospect. And I do give him a shot at beating De Leon. But I agree with Violent that De Leon does hit harder

I'd actually bet on lopez's left hook is stronger than any ponce punch.
Lopez has looked very strong but that's against C and D level competition.

Of course, but every future champ has to start somewhere...Did spinks fight anyone of relevance before he beat ali? Hell no, he only had 7 fights. Thats the point im trying to make.
