As the boxing ring is being prepared and the fighters finish their camps, we are currently taking a trip towards Commerce, California, to witness a Lightweight clash between two explosive fighters.
The main event of the night sees the undefeated Mexican fighter, William Zepeda, taking on a tough challenge in the Philipino fighter, Mercito Gesta, for an exciting 12-round clash.
Things are going to be fun the moment that the starting bell rings, as we are all expecting get great show, that is likely not going to reach the judges’ scorecards.
When it comes to the odds, one side is heavily favored and we are about to dive in and explain why before you get ready to make your bets.

Where To Watch:
Why Bet on William Zepeda?
Born in San Mateo Atenco, he turned pro in 2015. William Zepeda primarily fought in Mexico, competing in U.S. events from 2020 onwards. “Camaron” has impressed over time, beating the likes of Joseph Diaz and Jaime Arboleda.
On a fight day normally reserved for Canelo Alvarez, Zepeda’s excited to lead the charge.
He is a southpaw who enters the ring with a perfect mark of 27-0 with 24 big Ko’s. The Mexican made a name for himself due to his impressive power. He carries around a knockout ratio of 85.7 percent.
Why Bet on Mercito Gesta?
A veteran fighter himself, Gesta, who turned pro in 2003, is a former title contender. He has failed to capture gold against Ty Barnett and Jorge Linares. “No Mercy” is 2-1-1 in his past four fights, his most recent a win against Diaz.
The 35-year-old boxer fights out of San Diego and enters the ring with a mark of 34-3-3 with 17 Kos. His power isn’t overwhelming as his current knockout ratio is 50 percent and has just one stoppage in his last 10 outings.
Final Betting Analysis – William Zepeda vs. Mercito Gesta
Gesta pulled off a bit of an upset against Diaz but we don’t think he’s got enough pop in his punches to keep Zepeda off of him for 12 rounds.
The Filipino likes to cut off the ring and overwhelm his opponents, using speed and power to outwork them. In that respect, he is the perfect test for the Mexican.
In the end, Zepeda is a relentless puncher who just keeps throwing leather and we think he’ll be too aggressive and powerful for Gesta come Saturday night and a stoppage is the most likely scenario. We believe a KO within the first five rounds is the best bet.
Go for a victory for the undefeated Zepeda at -2000. If you bet $100 at such odds, you could get $5 for a total payout of $105.
