Weights from Diego Pacheco versus Jack Cullen

Tomorrow, Diego Pacheco will fight for the first time in the U.K., and it will be a headlining affair. After local Liverpool favorite, Callum Smith was unable to compete, Pacheco was elevated to headline the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool, England to face Jack Cullen, in a ten-round super middleweight bout. 


Both Pacheco and Cullen made weight, as both fighters came in underweight as weighed in at Diego Pacheco 166.10, whereas Jack Cullen was only slightly heavier at 167.8 lbs. 


The undercard, which will be featured on DAZN will see a plethora of what seems to be the promotion's future stars as super lightweight Robbie Davies Jr came in at 139.12, and his opponent Darragh Foley was also under the weight limit 139.6. Local favorite, a heavyweight didn’t need to worry about making weight as he weighed in at 240.12 as his opponent Alfonso Damiani came in at  233.13, Olympian Peter Mcgrail will fight at a catchweight coming in at 123.8 taking on Nicolas Nahuel Botelli who weighed 123.12, and Rhiannon Dixon 134.12 face Vicky Wilkinson 132.1, in a fight some say could steal the show. 


“My past few fights have all been must-wins for me. Obviously it was unfortunate with Liam Paro pulling out but I was thankful for Foley for stepping up. He still gives me a chance to show the general public, the Liverpool fans, what I’m about,” said Robbie Davies Jr., who should be close to a world title shot. “Get the win in dominating fashion and then move onto bigger things later in the year. He’s seen cracks in me, I can’t have that going into the big fish. I need to make a statement and not only win, I need to look good as well when doing it. Hopefully I can break him down, get to him and get him out of there.”
