Boxing: Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta will fight on ESPN Friday Night Fights

11 07 2012

Mandaue City‘s Mercito Gesta will be fighting his biggest bout in his promising career when he is featured in ESPN Friday Night Fights on August 3 against the dangerous Ty Barnett (20-2-1 13 KOs).  The undefeated Filipino lightweight prospect stakes his 25-0-1, 13 KOs record in his fight at the Texas Station Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In his last fight, Gesta won via an 8th round TKO over Oscar Cuero (15-8) last April 4 at Mandalay Bay Resort in Last Vegas.  He is on a 15-bout winning streak since he moved to the USA in his quest to become a world champion. His opponent Barnett has won against patsies Damon Antoine and Robert Daluz in his last 2 bouts.  Barnett last loss was against undefeated Andrey Klimov of Russia in May of last year.  A win by Gesta on the August 3 fight could propel him to a world title challenge by next year.
