Gesta is a good young talent who has more then enough to outbox a guy like rios. to say that he doesn't have a chance against rios is kinda ridiculous. that just lets me know that you haven't actually watched brandons fights & you don't know who Gesta is.....
I have seen rios vs teron and against Peterson both better boxers than Rios and Rios still beat them both Mercito is good and unproven Rios proved that he can fight with good fighters Peterson is a good fighters and was so fustrated that he went low on Rios I have seen Mercito and I'm sorry Rios would push him around like he did teron and Peterson
regarding the weight many boxer do it
