SHOWTIME Sports on the passing of Dr. Ferdie Pacheco

“The Fight Doctor” Ferdie Pacheco was the lead boxing analyst on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING in the 80’s and early 90’s. Having worked the corner of the great Muhammad Ali, Pacheco had a unique perspective on fighters and the sport of boxing.

He was passionate about the “Sweet Science” and a very opinionated commentator. Pacheco’s concern for fighters’ safety was evident during his years as a broadcaster.

Our sincere condolences to the Pacheco family and to all those who grieve his passing.
