Gesta-Molina Draw: Quigley, Fontanez, Falcao Win

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California - Junior welterweights Mercito Gesta (28-1-2, 16 KOs) and Carlos Molina (17-2-2, 7 KOs) fought to a ten round split draw in the FS1 televised main event. The scores were 95-95, 98-92 for Molina, and 96-94 for Gesta. The fight was a crossroads contest for both. Molina landed the better punches and Gesta often controlled the action with his jab and flashier displays of combinations. They traded often, with Molina landing some well placed counters.

Puerto Rico’s Jeffrey Fontanez (15-1, 12KOs) crushed Jose Hernandez (15-10-1, 7 KOs), who went down twice in the first before it was stopped.

Hot prospect Jason Quigley (6-0, 6KOs) drilled Joshua Snyder, (9-12-1, 3 KOs) in the second round of their super middleweight contest.

2012 Olympic Bronze medalist Yamaguchi Falcao, (6-0, 2 KOs) of Brazil boxed his way to an eight round unanimous decision over Gerardo Ibarra (14-3, 8 KOs). All three judges saw it 78-74. Falcao boxed well but he appeared to tire down the stretch and had to suck it up to hold on to game Ibarra stepping things up.

Fontanez and Quigley looked good. Gesta fight could of went either way, I had him winning but not upset with the draw. But he is just not that good and would struggle against the top fighters in his division.

that was still a high level boxing match IMHO. Gesta could beat Algieri.

BS score in my opinion, how do you have that other guy with 92-98 in favor for Molina? Mercito used a lot of movement, combinations and showed he has some chin. Molina was 90% flat footed looking for that one…
