When asked if he had heard that undefeated lightweight contender Mercito Gesta called him out this past Friday, former super featherweight champion Adrien Broner replied, "Who?" According to Broner, who will be making his lightweight debut on October 6th against an opponent to be announced, Gesta has yet to accomplish anything to warrant a showdown. "He just fought for what, $7500? $12,500 at the most? I just gave up $81,000 my last fight. Tell him to go get some money and come see me then," Broner explained.
While Broner did admit that he tuned in to the ESPN Friday Night Fights broadcast, he also said that he was so unimpressed with Gesta's performance that it put him to sleep and he was unaware that his name was even mentioned during the telecast. "This little Filipino dude, man, he's not impressive at all. There's nothing special about him," Broner continued. "I went to sleep about the 3rd round. It was not exciting to me. I went to sleep on the fight. So after the fight, he called me out?"
