Mercado stops Nakathila in two

Unbeaten lightweight Ernesto “Tito” Mercado (13-0, 12 KOs) scored a second round TKO over former world title challenger Jeremia Nakathila (23-4, 19 KOs) on Saturday night at the LumColor “Phoenix Center” in Ontario, California. Mercado dropped Nakathila in round two and got a referee’s stoppage with his follow-up barrage. Nakathila complained about the stoppage – which did seem quick. Regardless, Mercado continues to impress.

  • I think Mercado is ready for a guy like Jack Catterall or Jose Pedraza. His power is real and he is showing good improvements in every fight.

  • Someone needs to sign up Mercado. Maybe Oscar since Ring Magazine pays him so much attention, but he needs a promoter next year. He’s earned it.

      • Oh surely, with all those lightweights they have. They’ll go up eventually, but the only ones that I have ever seen pay him any attention whatsoever (and it’s been indirect) has been Golden Boy. Whoever it is, it’s time SOMEONE gives him a push. Matchroom has a pretty good stable at 140.
