The 30-year-old boxer Mercito Gesta has not lost a fight since 2012. His last lost via unanimous decision against Miguel Vasquez. He currently holds a boxing record of 31 wins, 1 loss and 2 draws. Gesta is enjoying a good boxing run in the United States and is probably facing his toughest challenge to date in Linares.
Venezuelan Jorge Linares (43-3-0) on the other hand is having the time of his life in boxing getting 12 straight wins in a row and has also not lost since 2012.
The boxing match is scheduled to be held at the LA Forum.
