Gesta, who now calls San Diego, Calif. his home, is a 31-year-old seasoned contender who has previously had two world title opportunities. In his first shot at a title, Gesta fought Miguel "Titere" Vazquez for the IBF Lightweight World Championship. In his second shot, Gesta took on WBA, WBC Diamond and Ring Magazine World Champion Jorge "El Niño de Oro" Linares, considered the very best lightweight in the world at the time. The southpaw will return after defeating Roberto "Tito" Manzanarez via majority decision in June 2018 as he plans to earn another shot at a 135-pound title.
