Mercito Gesta, “Camarón” Zepeda Ready for War on Mexico’s Independence Day

Unbeaten hard-hitting Mexican William “El Camarón” Zepeda (28-0, 24 KO’s) and tough, experienced Cebuano Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta (34-3-3, 17 KO’s) looked strong and ready in Los Angeles, making weight for tomorrow’s hot twelve-chapter clash for Camarón’s WBA Continental Americas 135-pound strap.
Could the brave 35-year-old veteran fighter from 🇵🇭 Mandaue, Sugbú, out-box, out-smart and dethrone the Mexican slugger on his country’s national day to claim the WBA’s regional belt, as well as another shot at the lightweight world title?
Or will the Mexican William “Camarón” Zepeda have too much power and skills for the big-hearted Pinoy fighter from the beautiful Land of legendary hero warrior LapuLapu?
The exciting show is promoted by Oscar de la Hoyas’s Golden Boy Promotions, live on DAZN.
Good luck Mercito, May the Best Man Win! #zepedagesta. Photos by Cris Esquida. Text by Carlos Costa 🇵🇭🇲🇽🇺🇸👍🥊
