Jorge Linares Decisions a Game Mercito Gesta, Retains Title

The WBA lightweight champion impressively proved his superiority over Mercito Gesta during their 12-round, 135-pound title fight in Inglewood, California.

Venzuela’s Linares won by big margins on all three scorecards – 118-110, 118-110 and 117-111 to make the third defense of his WBA lightweight championship.

The 32-year-old Linares (44-3, 27 KOs) won his 13th straight fight since suffering back-to-back technical knockout defeats to Antonio DeMarco and Sergio Thompson in October 2011 and March 2012, respectively.

In his first title shot, Gesta lost a lopsided 12-round, unanimous decision to Mexico’s Miguel Vazquez, then the IBF 135-pound champ, in December 2012 in Las Vegas.

The calm champion remained focused and continued to out-box a challenger who hadn’t had any real success since early in the fight.
