Mercito Gesta Cruises, Stops Trazcanos In Three

By Jake Donovan

Undefeated super bantamweight prospect Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta had an even easier time in his rematch with Genaro Trazancos, forcing his familiar foe to quit on his stool after three rounds in their Telefutura-televised co-feature at the Longshoreman Hall in San Francisco.

The bout was deemed largely unnecessary by most, considering that Gesta easily handled the journeyman last August. Desperate to keep him busy, his handlers decided on a rerun for the sake of keeping their fighter busy.

Recognizing the bout for the tune-up that it was, Gesta did his best to put in as many rounds as possible without completely carrying his opponent. It appeared as if the Filipino could have ended matters at any time, hurting Trazcanos in every round.

The greatest amount of damage came in the third round, when the southpaw landed a flush left uppercut which rocked his opponent and drew a huge reaction from the crowd on hand. Gesta followed up with a punishing flurry, but eased off and was content to box and embarrass his overmatched foe all for the sake of getting in some rounds.

Three was all he would get, as it was decided in between rounds that Trazcanos was unfit to continue.

Gesta improves to 21-0-1 (11KO) with the win, marking his fourth straight by stoppage. Trazcanos falls to 22-14-1 (13KO), dropping his fourth straight. The 36-year old Mexican has won just twice in his past 14 bouts, spanning more than seven years.

I don't see why this kid gets all the attention. I see nothing special in him. He has heavy legs and stays in one spot too long, he sprouts roots, he has sh!tty stamina, and he is inconsistent. As soons…
