Popular Filipino puncher Mercito Gesta (27-1-1, 15) has been priced as an unbackable favourite for his fight later tonight against experienced Mexican Luis Arceo (28-12-4, 18).
Gesta, a former world title challenger, will be fighting for just the second time in 19 months but his skills and power have made him a staggering 1/80 favourite with online betting firm Boylesports. When you consider that Boylesports have the best price you will see just how much of a perceived mismatch this contest is.
Arceo, as a major under-dog can be backed at 16/1 with Paddy Power who currently have Gesta at 1/100 to win!
It'll come as no surprise that the draw is a big outside bet, priced at 33/1 with Boylesports and 30/1 with Paddy Power.
Although Gesta is a big favourite he will likely need to do more than "just win" to impress the fans and TV audiences tuning into see him in action on US Fox Sports 1. In fact for many Gesta will need a stoppage to impress given the low level of opponent he will be fighting against.
