Jeremias Ponce is ready to rumble on American soil for the first time…
In his U.S. debut, the 26-year-old Argentine boxer will fight Subriel Matias for the vacant IBF junior welterweight title on the PBC on the Showtime undercard, sources said.
Ponce is currently 30-0 with 20 Kos.
Matias (18-1, 18 KOs) avenged his lone professional defeat in January with a ninth-round TKO of Petros Ananyan. The 30-year-old volume puncher from Puerto Rico is ESPN’s No. 9 boxer at 140 pounds.
The IBF title is one of three Josh Taylor vacated to proceed with his March 4 rematch vs. Jack Catterall.
