From Mexico to MSG | Diego Pacheco’s journey with Matchroom USA

As a 17-year-old back in 2018, eight-time national champion Diego Pacheco was one of boxing’s most sought after prospects. Unable to fight legally in the US, the South Central prospect started his pro career south of the border in Tijuana, eventually making his US debut with a sensational KO in front of a packed home crowd in LA. Since then, Pacheco has fought on the undercard of Joshua vs Ruiz in NYC, KSI vs Logan Paul 2, and fought before the main event out in Saudi Arabia for one of the biggest fight nights in recent years.
