In this candid interview, both fighters discuss the major changes they’ve made to their camps as they prepare for one of the most challenging and exciting bouts of their careers.
“I’m going to show my hunger in this fight,” said Carlos Morales. “If I don’t win this fight, my career will go in the toilet. I’m 29 years old, and I need to fight for a world title next. That’s why I need Mercito Gesta on my resume.”
“For me, it’s not about winning or losing,” said Mercito Gesta. “I’m here because of the love I have for the sport. A loss wouldn’t hurt me, but at the same time I’m confident I’m going to win. I’m the natural 135-pounder, and I’m the stronger one.”
Additional context and commentary will be shared in the Ring Report episode, airing this Thursday.
