Matthysse-Postol - Gesta is Aiming To Make a Statement

by Ronnie Nathanielsz
 
Popular Mandaue City, Cebu - Fighter Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta is hungry for victory when he battles former three-time world title challenger Martin “El Brochas” Honorios on October 3 at the StubHub Center in Carson City, California. The fight takes place on the Lucas Matthysse-Viktor Postol undercard.
 
Gesta’s official website reported that after failing to win the IBF lightweight title against champion Miguel Vazquez in 2012 - Gesta returned to the ring as a super lightweight in 2014 and “has looked better than ever in stopping Edgar Riovalle and Luis “Vampiro” Arceo. Most recently, Gesta fought world title contender Carlos Molina in April delivering an exciting and evenly matched event resulting in a draw. Now Gesta, is hungry for victory and ready to prove his ring superiority on Oct. 3.”
 
Honoriois is a tough fighter who is eager to get back in the ring and prove he is still in the running for world title contention.  With a victory over the popular John Molina Jr. and having faced tough contenders like Juan Carlos Salgado, Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero and Antonio “Relentless” Orozco; and former owner of the NABF and WBO NABO lightweight titles and contender for the IBF Featherweight title, Honorio is ready to upset Gesta.

With a record of 32-9-1 with 16 knockouts, the Mexican lost a ten round unanimous decision against Orozco which was his third loss in a row following a split decision win in an IBF super featherweight title eliminator against Thailand’s Fahsai Sakkreerin on December 11, 2011. 
 
On the other hand, southpaw Gesta was held to a ten round draw against Carlos Molina in a bout. It's a testament to Molina's toughness that he never backed down from Gesta in this fight, and pushed him hard all 10 rounds. There were plenty of debatable rounds in this fight, and the ultimate draw resultsis not a bad call. Of the score cards, Molina's 98-92 win is the most questionable, but there may be some defending that, too.”
