Mercito Gesta Challenges Luis Ramos
Mon, 28 Feb 2011
After his impressive win over Genaro Trazancos last week in San Francisco, undefeated up and coming lightweight prospect Mercito "No Mercy" Gesta (21-0-1, 11KOs) is more than ready to step up the level of competition. Having to face the overmatched Trazancos twice in less than twelve months because of a lack of willing opponents, the southpaw Gesta has a couple of fighters in his sights who he hopes to face off in a ring in the near future.
"I am ready for anybody. I would like to face Vicente Escobedo but I heard he might go down to 130 lbs.," the twenty-three year old Gesta stated. "I would also like to face Luis Ramos. He is undefeated like me and I think our styles will match up for a great fight."
The 17-0 Ramos of Santa Ana, CA, is scheduled to reappear on March 18th in the main event of Telefutura's "Solo Boxeo Tecate" at the Orange County Fairgrounds, a performance that San Diego, CA's Gesta anticipates in watching intently, "I just came off a win and I hope Ramos wins too so that hopefully we can face each other in our next bout."
Vince Parra, co-manager and trainer of Gesta, feels that the match up is the perfect one for either fighter.
"I think it’s a great fight between two southern California favorites," Parra said. "The winner goes to bigger and better things while the loser goes back to the drawing board. We know that Ramos is a tough kid but I think Gesta has the speed and the skill to beat him."
