Last night at the Fantasy Springs Resort & Casino in Indio, CA, Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta (28-1-2, 16 KOs) fought to a Split Decision Draw against Carlos Molina (17-2-2, 7 KOs). Molina came out strong with a surprised shot during the opening bell when Gesta circled the middle of the ring to touch gloves. From that point on, it was war!
In the end, judges scored the bout 98-92 (Molina), 96-94 (Gesta), 95-95. Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta thanked all his fans and supporters on his social media accounts (Facebook: Mercito Gesta, Instagram/Twitter: @TheRealMGesta), “It was a great fight. Thanks for watching. You all are great fans! On behalf of Team Gesta and myself, THANK YOU…Golden Boy Boxing Cerritos Mitsubishi South Coast Mitsubishi.

In addition, during Mercito’s post-fight interviews, he noted, “I strongly believe I won the fight. He was quite bigger than me (15 or so lbs.) and I felt that difference in the ring. However, we are both warriors and we were both out there to win!”
