Mercito Gesta Bandwagon Starts To Roll But He’s Not Trying To Be Pacquiao Clone

It wasn’t who he beat. It was the smooth manner in which precocious, 23 year old Pinoy lightweight prospect Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta demolished Mexican veteran Jorge “El Tigre” Pimentel Saturday night at the Home Depot Center which was impressive. CARSON, Calif. — Oh, sure, there a couple of rough spots like the now 22-0-1, 12 knockouts fighter from Cebu not moving his head enough. But, when he left his noggin in harm’s way, Gesta was intelligently doing so for a reason. It wasn’t a mistake, as co-manager/trainer Vince Parra pointed out, but a method to lure the taller and often backpedaling veteran into engaging within KO distance. After referee Raul Caiz Jr. wisely stopped it in the third round on the Urbano Antillon-Bam Bam Rios undercard, Top Rank’s head carnival barker, Bob Arum, was dishing out the superlatives. […]

Arum Predicts Mercito Gesta Will Be A Big Star

Astute Top Rank promoter Bob Arum whose prized possession is pound-for-pound king and “Fighter of the Decade” Manny Pacquiao believes that his most recent signing, undefeated lightweight Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta has an exciting future ahead of him. Arum told the Daily Inquirer “this Filipino kid Gesta is going to be a big star.” Arum said that Gesta would see action on July 9 on the undercard of the WBA lightweight title fight between Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios and Urbano Antillon and that the Gesta fight “will be on the international telecast” which will also be carried in the Philippines by ABS-CBN. He said he had included the fight of the 23 year old southpaw from Mandaue City on the telecast “so the Filipino people can see him in action” from the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. […]

Mercito Gesta On Glory Road – Can He Take On The World?

Recently joining the Top Rank roster is Filipino lightweight sensation Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta. Unbeaten in 21 outings, Gesta has been making splashes in the shadows of compatriots Manny Pacquiao and Nonito Donaire. Golden Boy Promotions already expressed interest in the 23-year old southpaw from Mandaue City, Philippines when Top Rank swooped in and took Gesta into its fray. Vince Parra, Gesta’s co-trainer and manager, said in an interview that GBP already had their eyes on his ward but Top Rank offered a more substantial offer. “I just felt like Bob showed us a lot more respect than Golden Boy. He knows what we want and he’s going to give Mercito the right opportunities,” Parra said. With Gesta joining Top Rank, the young Filipino pugilist will definitely enjoy a certain level of exposure that will certainly catapult him to the top tier of his division and earn him some degree of recognition, especially among the Filipino boxing fans.
