The YouTube Theater in California will witness one of the best fights at the end of the year, as the local Diego Pacheco will face the experienced Argentine Marcelo Coceres.
At stake will be two super middleweight titles: the American title of the World Boxing Council (WBC) and the international title of the World Boxing Organization, in a fight scheduled for 10 rounds.
On the one hand, there is the youth of 22 years old local, of which only 4 have been of professional life. That is a far cry from the 11 years of the Argentinean, who currently holds the South American championship.
However, Pacheco has a lot more at stake, as he is one of the new talents looking to exploit, and for now, he is undefeated, having not lost in 19 fights.
But Pacheco vs. Coceres is not the only big fight of the day, as the World Boxing Association (WBA) bantamweight bout between Venezuela’s Mayerlin Rivas and Mexico’s Erika Cruz will take place.
Saturday, November 18 at 9:00 pm ET at the YouTube Theater, Inglewood, Estados Unidos
(Estimated) 10:37 pm ET
Diego Pacheco -2000
Marcelo Coceres +750
Where To Watch:
Why bet on Diego Pacheco?
As said before, Diego Pacheco is only 22 years old, 4 of which he has been a professional. These few years in the ring have served him to demonstrate that he has all the talent to aspire to reach the elite.
His boxing style is orthodox, and he holds the United States World Boxing Council super middleweight and World Boxing Organization International titles.
He has fought 19 times and has never lost. But the most important thing for the Californian is that he has knocked out 16 opponents, that is, in 84% of his encounters he has won by KO, proving that his punches are rocks for his opponents.
Likewise, Pacheco has been pretty rolling in 2023, defeating Jack Cullen in March and beating Manuel Gallegos in July. The first fight was in Liverpool, England, and the second was in Monterrey, Mexico.
The American’s height is 1.93 meters, while he has a very long reach of 2.01 meters.
Why bet on Marcelo Coceres?
Marcelo Coceres, better known as ‘El Terrible,’ is an experienced boxer with 11 years in the professional ranks, fighting on 38 occasions.
The 32-year-old fighter has 32 victories, 18 of which have been by knockout. In other words, 56% of his victories came before the final bell.
Coceres has lost five times in his career but only once by knockout. The last time he lost was to Meiirim Nursultanov, but it was by unanimous decision. Interestingly, four of his losses have been outside the country, so it has been hard for him to be a visitor.
The Argentinean has had only one fight in the year, a victory over his compatriot Leonel Eduardo Avila, getting a technical knockout.
1.82 meters is the height of the Argentinean, and the reach is 1.75.
