PARKER, Ariz. – There are two great Filipino fighters in the world today, but only one is undefeated.  His name is Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta (22-0-1, 12 KOs), and on Saturday, September 17, he will headline “BATTLE AT BLUEWATER 2,” a card presented by Showdown Promotions, in association with Top Rank Inc., and televised nationally by Fox Sports.

BlueWater Resort & Casino, the entertainment capital of western Arizona, will celebrate its second foray into boxing with an explosive card that also features Arizona boxing’s top undefeated prospect, Jose Benavidez Jr. (12-0, 11 KOs) – fresh off a homecoming knockout win in Phoenix in May.

As if that were not enough, undefeated Tijuana sensation Hanzel  "El Tornadito de Tijuana" Martinez (12-0, 10 KOs) will  return to BlueWater and make a special-attraction fight certain to please his countrymen, as they give “El Grito” and celebrate Mexican Independence Day Weekend.

“Great fight card in our return to the BlueWater!” says Showdown Promotions’ Gerry Truax about BATTLE AT BLUEWATER 2.  “I can’t tell you how excited we are to have prospects like Mercito Gesta and Jose Benavidez Jr. on one card.  These are two of boxing’s biggest future stars.  And on national television!

Another undefeated Phoenix prospect, Juanito Gonzalez (2-0, 1 KO), will round-out what promises to be an exceptional lineup in the BlueWater Amphitheater.
