Guest Book Highlights

November 17, 2017 "Preeminent physician and cornerman, who earned a prominent/high-profile place in Mr. Ali's entourage.

I really enjoyed Dr. Pacheco's analyst work during televised boxing matches, and it was clear that he gleaned a tremendous amount of knowledge with regard to boxing strategy (or as people in the business like to say, "science"). The combination of boxing and medical smarts, coupled with a good delivery and timing, made for quality expert commentary.

Rest In Peace"

November 17, 2017 "On behalf of all the boxing fans, past & present, from the Billerica & Lowell, Ma. area, Godspeed, Ferdie !" - James (Boston Jim) McMinn (Worcester, MA)
November 17, 2017 "To the family of Mr. Fernando "Ferdie" Pacheco,

I would like to express my sincere condolences for the loss of Mr. Pacheco.

We can look forward to the promise at 1 Corinthians 15:21, 22 "for just as in Adam all men are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive.

Sincerely," - T. Alle
