De Leon demolishes Lopez!

In a non-title bout fought at the featherweight limit, WBO super bantamweight world champion Daniel Ponce De Leon (33-1, 30 KOs) scored a devastating fifth round knockout over Reynaldo Lopez (27-6-2, 19 KOs) on Friday night at the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa in Cabazon, California. Ponce De Leon was returning just 48 days after defending his title against #1 rated Rey Bautista on August 11, but Lopez who was making his debut in the United States, was not expected to offer the champ too many problems. Lopez put up some resistance early on, however the champion's bludgeoning blows began to take their toll more and more. Finally a huge Ponce De Leon straight left Lopez laying on the canvas motionless and the bout was over. Time was 2:39. The card is the first in the new multi-fight deal between Golden Boy Promotions and the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa. Promoter Oscar De La Hoya was in attendance.

ponce de leon has far to much ammo for pendarosa these days, i see this ending very early by brutal KO.

He shaved off his ****** rat tail haircut and looked like a damn good boxer. He will destroy Pennalosa.

to be completely honest, the reason i didnt really like him before was becasue of his rediculous look.

Im not tipping Gerry to win but il go against everyone and say it wont be an early destruction. The wide UD in the 1st fight was rediculous it was much closer than what the judges scored, I read somewhere that Penalosa said he feels he would of won that fight had Freddie Roach been there. This time I assume Roach will be there so we will have to see.

i agree powers, i think th efirst fight was very close and deleon looked like azz. although gerry has an awesome chin, i think it'll end in a mid round tko stoppage.

Gerry Penalosa is the one of the most underrated boxers, defintely one of the best technicians in the sport and this fight may end up closer than alot of you think. His first fight with Deleon was very close and the scorecards did not indicate that, and his devastating KO of Jhonny Gonzales is proof that he packs a heavy punch...the only way Penalosa will win this fight however, is by KOing De Leon which wwon't be easy

i though gonzalez was easily winning the fight before the body shot landed, i see ponce de leon just ripping away at him till he falls.

no doubt that gonzales should of won that fight but he got caught, deleon will finish gonzales job, although i find gonzales very boring and ponce deleon usually puts on a show.

he has got to learn how to throw a straight much, or he'll get killed by a good boxer/puncher and his power isnt as devastating as i would have though. i think bautista just has a really bad chin.
