MERCITO GESTA FIGHTING IN SAN FRANCISCO FRIDAY!
San Francisco, CA- With Manny Pacquiao being the “king of boxing,” other Filipino fighters with world championship skills are getting attention and at the same time taking the boxing world by storm. The newest Pinoy fighter that has people talking is lightweight (135 lbs) Mercito Gesta. Born in Mandaue City, Cebu, Philippines, the unbeaten lightweight (135 lbs.) is being promoted by Hall of Fame promoter Don Chargin, an architect of world champions for over 60 years, and at 82, Chargin thinks Mercito has “the goods.”
HUNGRY & CRAVING WORLD TITLE SHOT
On Friday night, Gesta puts his unblemished record of 20-0 (10 KOs) on the line at San Francisco’s famed Fisherman’s Wharf, the Longshoreman’s Hall arena, in a ten round main event against Mexican mauler Genaro Trazancos (22-13, 13 KOs). The fight will be carried live on Telefutura TV, the Spanish TV network starting at 10 PM ET this Friday, February 18, 2011.
SIZZLING FIGHTER IN SEMI MAIN EVENT!
The semi-main event star is world ranked Eloy Perez of nearby Salinas, CA. Untouched at 19-0 (5 KOs) this maybe the hottest ticket seller on the bill, having sold over $20 K worth of seats! Promoter Chargin has him in against the capable Roger Gonzalez (27-3, 18 KOs)
LOCAL STARS A GREAT SUPPORTING CAST
Chargin has “stacked” the undercard with San Franciscan’s undefeated wedlterweight (147) Karim Mayfield (13-0-1, 8 KOs) in an eight rounder. Also making his debut is The City’s Joey Gamina, himself a former amateur star that can punch!
