As things heat up for Mexican Independence Day, William “El Camarón” Zepeda (28-0, 24 KOs) and Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta (34-3-3, 17 KOs) hosted a press conference ahead of their 12-round clash on Saturday for Zepeda’s WBA Continental Americas lightweight title on DAZN from the Commerce Casino & Hotel in Commerce, California.

William Zepeda: “I am extremely motivated for this fight. I’ve always believed that there’s no such thing as an A-side or B-side in boxing. To face a grand rival like Mercito Gesta is a great privilege, and I can’t wait to demonstrate to everyone of what “El Camarón” is made of.”

Mercito Gesta: “I am not new in this sport. I will never stop learning. My style always evolves. I am staying in focused with my coach Marvin Somodio. I am so excited to be facing William Zepeda who is undefeated. Zepeda is an up-and-coming fighter. He’s great and he excites me. This opportunity is really hard to miss. Now that Oscar and Golden Boy have given it to me – why not? It’s a good fight. I want to thank Golden Boy for this opportunity.”

  • “I’ve always believed that there’s no such thing as an A-side or B-side in boxing.”
    Okay so everybody should get paid the same no matter what accomplishments or huge fanbase? Makes no sense.
    Another fighter protected and built by GB to extract dollars from the Mexican fans.

  • LOL claims he doesn’t believe in an “A-side or B-side.” Wait until he’s the A-side in a major fight and let’s see how that changes. He will expect to get more money and perks. Tyson Fury once said it’s never about the money. A few years later he’s saying its all about the money.

    Well Zepeda there is an A-and B side otherwise you’d all get paid the same with the same perks. Fury is right its called prize fighting so its all about the money. Why put your life on the life..for the GLORY of it..yeah right
