In breaking news, the set match up between former title challenger Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta (26-1-1, 14KOs) and WBC ranked #3 junior welterweight Ajose Olusegun (31-1, 14KOs) of Nigeria is off because of a rib injury suffered today by Gesta in sparring. The bout was scheduled for Friday, July 19th, as the main event for ESPN’s “Friday Night Fights.”
After a quick exchange, Gesta complained of pain on his right side and immediately was taken to a nearby hospital for a check up by his manager Vince Parra. A possible fracture is suspected.
No word if another opponent will be searched for Olusegun.
