Longshoremen’s Hall in San Francisco - Filipino slugger Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta (28-1-1, 16 KOs) continues his win streak with a stoppage victory over Luis Arceo (28-13-4, 19 KOs) in seven rounds. Gesta is looking to get his career back on track after suffering his first career defeat in December 2012 at the hands of current IBF lightweight champion Miguel Vazquez.
Gesta took some time off, and he was also released by Top Rank. He finally returned to the ring and stopped Edgar Riovalle in eight rounds in San Diego.
Seven-foot Chinese heavyweight Taishan Dong (1-0, 1KO) made his pro debut with a second round knockout of Alex Rozman (2-7, 1 KO). Dong scored three knockdowns in the contest.
