Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta (33-3-3, 17 KOs) proved he is still in the running as one of the top contenders in his division with a split decision victory in the main event attraction.
Gesta defeated former world champion Joseph “JoJo” Diaz, Jr. (32-3-1, 15 KOs) in a 10-round super lightweight event, with judges scoring the back-and-forth 91-99, 92-98, and 97-93. The Walter Pyramid in Long Beach hosted the matchup and was broadcast worldwide on DAZN.
“I feel great about the outcome,” said Mercito Gesta. “We had our game plan and I listened to my corner. It was a close fight. With Coach Marvin Somodio, I have learned that I can move around a lot more and I am excited to have another full training camp with him. If I were to choose my next opponent, I want William “El Camarón” Zepeda next.”
