23-year-old Filipino jr. welterweight prospect, Mercito Gesta (21-0-1, 11 KOs) has come to terms with Bob Arum and Top Rank on a multi-year promotional contract.
The southpaw, based out of San Diego, has yet to fight anyone above the journeyman-level, but has impressed fans and media with his physical tools and aggression.
Gesta entertained an offer from Golden Boy, but ultimately opted for Top Rank, the promotional company that currently represents Filipino mega-star Manny Pacquiao, as well as countrymen, Bernabe Concepcion and Mark Melligen. Top Rank also represents Filipino-American bantamweight star, Nonito Donaire, despite Donaire’s pending lawsuit to terminate his contract in favor of a move to Golden Boy.
