Super-Middleweight star takes on Marcelo Coceres live worldwide on DAZN

Tickets are on sale now as Diego Pacheco, one of the hottest young fighters in the sport, will headline at home for the first time in his blossoming career when he takes on Marcelo Coceres for the WBO International and USWBC Super-Middleweight titles at the YouTube Theater in Los Angeles on November 18, live worldwide on DAZN.

TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW AT TICKETMASTER.COM

Pacheco (19-0 16 KOs) was at his scintillating best in his last outing in July where he blitzed the dangerous Manuel Gallegos inside four rounds in Monterrey, Mexico – ending matters with a vicious attack after flooring Gallegos in the fourth with a trademark bodyshot and became the first man to stop the Mexican later in the round.

That was a second headline turn for the rangy South LA man having previously pummeled Jack Cullen into submission again in four rounds in Liverpool, England, in April, and now the 23- year- old earns a shorter trip to top the bill, doing so at YouTube Theater, a 6,000-seat venue situated under the same roof canopy as in the shadow of the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, where he grew up.

“I cannot wait to be headlining at home November 18 at the YouTube Theater,” said Pacheco. “I am looking forward to making a statement and delivering another great performance for all my hometown fans.”

"YouTube Theater is thrilled to host Diego Pacheco’s first headlining fight for its second boxing event at the venue," said Adolfo Romero, vice president, programming and booking, YouTube Theater at Hollywood Park. “Boxing is an important part of our programming story here at Hollywood Park, and we look forward to a great fight night.”

Standing in Pacheco’s way of another impressive showing at Super-Middleweight is former World title challenger Coceres (32-5-1 18 KOs). The Argentine returns to the city of his biggest night, where he met WBO ruler Billy Joe Saunders for the World title in November 2019, and the 32 year old32-year-old is set to provide Pacheco with the biggest test of his career to date.

“November 18, in his backyard, this is what warriors do,” said Coceres. “I have a lot of respect for Pacheco, he’s a good fighter, but he’s still young and he has time. This is my time now.

"I’ve been here before. I’ve been to war. Let’s see how the young boy does when his back is against the wall."

“I’m bringing everything into this fight. I can’t afford another loss at this point in my career. This is make or break and I’m leaving everything I have in the ring come November 18.”

“Diego is a superstar in the making – and I am thrilled that he’s headlining at the YouTube Theater in his LA home,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “This young man continues to cut through the opposition with power and precision, and I believe that Los Angeles has a new future sporting icon on its hands – and this is going to be the perfect night for Diego to show just that.”
