Highly touted junior lightweight prospect Ryan Garcia is looking to make step up in a huge way!
Mercito Gesta is the man his team is negotiating with at the moment for this fall.
Garcia is on the heels of his most notable career victory against former world title challenger Jayson Velez in May. He is vastly becoming a hot commodity in a short period of time.
Gesta came up short in his last two attempts at becoming champion; once each, against Jorge Linares and Miguel Vazquez. However, he a picked up a decision victory over Robert Manzanarez last month.
At one point in his career, many fans had high expectations for Gesta. He consistently drew comparisons to fellow countryman Manny Pacquiao.
If this fight gets made, it will be a great litmus test for the younger Garcia. A win for him will help bolster his resume.
A victory for Gesta would show the world that he is still a viable contender in a tough lightweight division.
