Undefeated southpaw Mercico “No Mercy” Gesta is doing great at his Big Bear training camp in preparation for his crack at the IBF lightweight title held by Miguel Vazquez of Mexico on the undercard of the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez fourth encounter at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on December 8.

Gesta’s trainer and co-manager Vince Parra told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard that “training has been great as we wrapped up our second week up here and we are coming into the final few weeks and are bring in new sparring partners to sharpen him (Gesta) up,  and working on the game-plan.”

He said “everything is good, conditioning is good and the weight is right on track and we are looking forward to a big night.”

Parra said that when they were training in San Diego, Gesta worked “with a couple of tall amateur kids” but  since they got to Big Bear Gesta has sparred with Joel Diaz whom he described as “a real good lightweight prospect and as always we brought in Aaron Garcia who provides support for the conditioning and  moving around, to get the rounds.”

The trainer said they were bringing a good welterweight from Tijuana, Mexico  identified as Jorge Silva ( 19-2-2,15 KO’s)   and Cuban Rances “Kid Blast” Barthelemy (17-0, 11 KO’s) who fights out of Miami, Florida.

Parra said Bathelemy is “5’ 11” real tall proficient boxer. So these two guys will wrap up the final two weeks of sparring. We are happy with it so far.”

He said Gesta is “looking great and his whole family is here and we are all staying together in a house I rented in Big Bear.”

Gesta’s father Anecito , a muay thai champion assists in training Mercito while his mother Mercedes does the cooking. Parra said “it’s a family affair and its great and you can’t ask for better support.”

Parra stressed that “we are preparing to come in there and show the world that Mercito is an elite fighter and for our part we are looking to put on an entertaining fight. If Miguel Vazquez shows up to fight then we’ll fight. If he shows up to run then we’ll find him. We are preparing for all aspects in this fight.”
