Pacheco vs Coceres – DAZN – Nov. 18 – 9 pm ET

Diego Pacheco is all set to dazzle the boxing scene as he squares off against Marcelo Coceres for the WBO International and USWBC Super-Middleweight titles. The action-packed clash is scheduled for November 18, at the YouTube Theater in Los Angeles, broadcasting live on DAZN.

Pacheco, a fiery boxing sensation with an undefeated streak (19-0, with 16 KOs), continues to soar high in his burgeoning boxing journey. His recent outing in July was nothing short of spectacular, where he showcased his talent halting the formidable Manuel Gallegos in Monterrey, Mexico. A ruthless body shot sent Gallegos to the canvas in the fourth round, making Pacheco the first ever to stop the Mexican powerhouse.

Pacheco’s rise was further cemented when he dominated Jack Cullen in Liverpool, England, earlier in April. Now, the 23-year-old South LA native gets a chance to headline closer to home, right in the vicinity of the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, where he has deep-rooted memories of growing up.

On this exciting occasion, an ecstatic Pacheco shared, “Headlining in my hometown on November 18 at the YouTube Theater is something I’ve eagerly waited for. I’m geared up to deliver a performance that’ll resonate with my fans and make a resounding statement.”

However, Pacheco’s journey to glory won’t be a cakewalk. Awaiting him in the opposite corner is the seasoned Argentine boxer, Marcelo Coceres, boasting a record of 32-5-1 with 18 KOs. Coceres, who once squared off against WBO champ Billy Joe Saunders in 2019, believes he possesses the experience and skill to halt Pacheco’s rising tide.

With fire in his eyes, Coceres declared, “This is a warrior’s game. While I respect Pacheco and acknowledge his talent, I firmly believe this is my time. He may be young and promising, but I’ve weathered storms and faced fierce battles. It’s one thing to be a promising talent, but facing adversity in the ring is a whole different ball game. On November 18, I’ll put it all on the line. It’s do or die for me.”

Press Quotes

Eddie Hearn: “We’ve been really busy these past few days. We’ve just arrived from an important press conference in London yesterday, announcing the Day of Reckoning event in Saudi Arabia on December 23. This adds to Matchroom’s packed schedule for the rest of 2023.

It’s been an amazing few weeks for us, and the momentum isn’t slowing down. This Saturday in Los Angeles at the YouTube Theater, broadcast live on DAZN globally, our up-and-coming star Diego Pacheco will be headlining for the third time this year. He’s fighting in his hometown, aiming to establish his position in the Super-Middleweight division.”

Diego Pacheco (19-0, 16 KOs) – defending his WBO International and USWBC Super-Middleweight titles against Marcelo Coceres:

“I’m really thankful for this chance. It’s a big moment for me and I’m expecting a fantastic evening this Saturday. My training camp was excellent, and this year has been great. I’m excited to finish the year strongly because we’ve got big plans for 2024.

Coceres is probably the most challenging opponent I’ve faced. He’s a skilled fighter with a lot of impressive fights under his belt. But I believe I’m the better boxer. I’m confident that my abilities and the effort I’ve put in, including the training and sparring, will give me the upper hand. This is the most important fight of my career so far, and I can’t wait to put on a performance for my local fans.

I’ve sparred with the best in the 160, 168, and 175 divisions. They recognize my talent. I feel like I have a natural gift, and combined with my hard work, I see myself as unstoppable. You’ve seen how I’ve improved and grown stronger in my previous fights. I’m excited to continue this trend against even stronger opponents. Coceres is a solid test for me this Saturday, and I’m eager to demonstrate my skills against a fighter of his caliber.

I’ve had two impressive fights this year in the UK and Mexico. Now, it’s thrilling to fight in my hometown. We’ve got many significant plans for 2024, but my current focus is on Coceres and this Saturday’s fight. It’s going to be an amazing night. Make sure to watch on DAZN – it’s Diego Pacheco’s time.”

Marcelo Coceres (32-5-1, 18 KOs) – challenging Diego Pacheco for the WBO International and USWBC Super-Middleweight titles:

“It’s wonderful to be back in LA. I feel well-prepared for this fight and I’m ready to give it my all. I want to demonstrate my abilities and continue on my journey.

I’m always prepared for a tough fight. Pacheco will find it challenging against me. I have a wealth of experience and a strong desire to win. When this opportunity came, I was excited to accept it.”
