Ponce de Leon: "It's my opportunity to demonstrate that I can be better than Gamboa. ... What happened with Juan Manuel Lopez was luck. ... For that fight I was overconfident, I had overtrained. I was overconfident for that fight. ... I feel that I definitely have trained hard, that's my job. I love boxing. I'm a student. ... For the fight with Gamboa, I'm going to let him come in and box, and I'm going to go in there and box with him. ... I've won a lot of great fights for Golden Boy. I was one of the first to start winning fights when they first were established. I defended my title seven times when I was champion. And I'm always giving good shows for the fans, and I'm going to keep doing that. I'm going to win this fight. I've won eight different titles with Golden Boy, and this is another fight."
