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 body shot 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.
