LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - Juan Antonio "El Mozo" Rodriguez (30-7, 25 KOs) of Puebla, Mexico is celebrating his ninth-round technical knockout victory over Mercito "No Mercy" Gesta (32-3-2, 17 KOs) of San Diego, Calif. during the inaugural edition of Golden Boy DAZN Thursday Night Fights at Avalon Hollywood.
"I want to thank God. I want to thank my sponsors back home," Juan Rodriguez. "I felt it was a matter hitting him to the body until he collapsed, and he did. It was a matter of time until he quit, and he quit. He stopped throwing punches."
"It was a good fight," said Mercito Gesta."The guy was tough. He fought hard. No excuses from me. What's next? I want whatever is best for me. I'm a fighter, and I love challenges."
