Miguel Rivera

The long awaited fight is finally in place. IBF lightweight champion Miguel Vazquez (32-3, 13KOs) says he is "ready to go" 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.

Gesta needs to cut off the ring and utilize his strength and punching power to beat Vazquez. Miguel is a good boxer with good footwork, but he gets hit a lot, and does not have much pop. He also tired…

[QUOTE=SoggyLungs;12646429]gesta is going to need to fight agressive for the full 12 rounds if he wants to beat vazquez...gesta tends to get too flat footed and inactive at times. i'd expect vazquez to give gesta a tough time..[/QUOTE]Gesta has lulls…

[QUOTE=ThePhantom5;12646423]That would be easier. Yes.[/QUOTE]I doubt it. He barely beat a club fighter. He will have just as hard of a time with Gesta, unlike some who thought he could beat Gesta 12 out of 12 rounds.
