Miguel Vazquez: Mercito Gesta Will Be a Tougher Fight

By Bill Emes

IBF lightweight champion Miguel Vazquez (32-3, 13KOs) expects a very tough fight against undefeated Filipino contender Mercito Gesta (26-0-1, 14KOs) on December 8th in Las Vegas, as part of the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez HBO pay-per-view undercard at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Vazquez retained his title on Saturday with a twelve round split decision over mandatory challenger Marvin Quintero.

According to Vazquez, he had some trouble with Quintero because "he was very strong and aggressive." He knows Gesta is also strong and expects him to be even more aggressive than Quintero. Vazquez plans to train for the fight of his life.

"I feel very happy and motivated. These are the fights that I want. All I'm thinking about now is December 8th and fighting Gesta and putting on a great performance. I think that it will be a complicated fight. He's undefeated and very strong. Gesta will be even more aggressive than Quintero, so I know that I have to prepare even harder for December 8th," Vazquez told BoxingScene.com.

Miguel Vazquez is a world champion for many reasons. This will not be an easy fight for Mercito Gesta. Vazquez has never been knocked out, and has faced strong opponents like Saul Alverez and Timothy Bradley, Bredis Prescott and Lenny…
