Random surprise: Shane Mosley Spars with Mercito Gesta at the Wild Card

Earlier today I came across some interesting news when I read that ‘Sugar’ Shane Mosley made a surprise visit to the Wild Card Boxing Club in Los Angeles and put in some work with rising lightweight contender Mercito Gesta, according to ESNewsReporting.com.

With Mosley was his son Shane Jr., as aspiring amateur, and he too was said to have gone some rounds Gesta, who himself is getting ready for a September 17th assignment in Parker, Arizona.

There was some internet chatter on Monday night after some clips of Gesta sparring with 19-year old junior welterweight prospect Jose Benavidez Jr. were found. Benavidez, promoted by Top Rank as is Gesta, is co-headlining the September 17th card and there appeared to be nothing but respect after he went six rounds with the Filipino southpaw.
