Carlos Morales vs Mercito Gesta Predictions & Betting Odds - Boxing Tips

This will be Morales’ third fight at 135 pounds after two previous victories, so he’s made a strong start in the new division. 

The 29 year-old is a former NABA Super Featherweight champion, having beaten Luis Franco for the title then gone on to defend against Charles Huerta. He went on to suffer defeats to former world champion Alberto “Explosivo” Machado, Ryan Garcia and Rene Alvarado, but these are quality fighters and “The Solution” has never been stopped.

Gesta has had two previous world title shots, but was outclassed on both occasions by Miguel “Titere” Vazquez back in 2012 and Jorge “El Niño de Oro” Linares in 2018.

The 31 year-old southpaw suffered a surprise loss in his last fight too, when he was stopped in the ninth round by Juan Antonio Rodriguez. 

Carlos Morales vs Mercito Gesta Betting Lines & Pick

Mercito Gesta’s defeat to Juan Antonio Rodriguez has to be taken into consideration in terms of predictions for this fight. These are two very solid boxers, but not at the elite level.

Although Gesta has recorded 17 KOs in his career and therefore presents an obvious danger, Morales has to be the tip to win this fight based on his overall record.

As yet there is no line available on this fight, but look to leading Sportsbooks such as 888Sport, bet365, Betway Sports and Sports Interaction for the best odds on the fight.
