about

The 26-year-old from Queensland, Australia has won all 23 of his professional contests since turning over in March 2016 and currently sits well positioned with the WBO and IBF for a World Title charge in the Super-Lightweight division in 2023.

'The Prodigy' first caught the eye with on the Jake Paul-Tyron Woodley 2 undercard, outpointing previously unbeaten Puerto Rican Yomar Alamo via split decision over ten rounds. Paro then secured a highlight-reel knock-out over fellow Australian Brock Jarvis in the opening round as the main event of Matchroom's debut show Down Under in Brisbane in October 2022.

Forced to pull out of a World Title shot against Regis Prograis in the summer of 2023 through injury, Paro eventually returned from injury as chief support to Haney-Prograis in December. After a cagey start against Montana Love, Paro turned the screw to drop and stop Love in a statement performance, claiming the WBO Intercontinental Super-Lightweight Title in the process.

Liam Paro pulled off one of the upsets of the year in 2024 when he defeated 140lb Boogeyman Subriel Matias to win the IBF World Super Lightweight Title in June 2024. Paro took the fight in Matias' back yard but takes the belt back home to Australia.
