Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta (19-0-1, 9 KOs), one of boxing’s bright prospects from the Philippines, knocked out Mexico’s veteran fighter Genaro Trazancos (22-12-1, 13 KOs) in the 7th round of their 8- round bout at Casino Del Sol in Tuscon, Arizona to remain undefeated.
The Filipino junior welterweight was not tested enough and toyed with Genaro Trazancos for most of the fight but stepped up his attack starting the 6th round as he peppered his opponent with various combinations to the head and body. The most telling were his left straights and upper cuts that would make Trazancos stop momentarily in his tracks every time the Filipino’s power punches found its mark.
Despite Trazancos’ experience, Gesta was just superior in all departments and there was no doubt in the spectators’ minds that the Filipino can end the fight anytime if he wants it and are just waiting for the inevitable outcome to happen.
Mercito Gesta came out of the corner smoking in the 7th determined to end the fight and not put the decision into the hands of the judges. He showed no mercy and chased the reeling Trazancos all over and with just 53 seconds into the round, a powerful left straight to the kisser put the game Trazancos on his back for the count.
Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta improves to 19 wins with 9 KOs while Genaro Trazancos dropped his losing record to 12.
