Before Canelo Alvarez looks to conclude his trilogy with Gennadiy Golovkin this Saturday, September 17th, live on DAZN PPV, taking place at the T-Mobile Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada, Matchroom Boxing’s super middleweight prospect Diego Pacheco will look to make a statement on the undercard.
Pacheco, who is currently undefeated will face Enrique Collazo for the WBC U.S. super middleweight title that is currently vacant, which should give him a higher world ranking. The 21-year-old though feels the man at the top of the division he is at, Canelo Alvarez, is avoiding his teammate, David Benavidez.
“It’s a fight the whole world wants to see [Canelo vs. David Benavidez], and Canelo recently said he wouldn’t fight a Mexican again, huh,” said Pacheco reflecting on his teammate David Benavidez potentially getting a fight with Canelo in the future. “I don’t know why he is saying that, because every great Mexican fighter has put on great historical fights against other Mexican fighters. I hope that fight gets done because it’ll be a fight that goes down in the history books for sure.”
Pacheco explained that once this fight is over, he will be back in camp with David Benavidez in Seattle, Washington helping David Benavidez prepare for his upcoming fight.
Pacheco recently joined Jose Benavidez Sr.’s roster of fighters as Pacheco is part of one of the most exciting stables in boxing with David Benavidez, Jose Benavidez Jr., Jose Valenzuela, and himself.
