Rising star Liam Paro making some noise at super lightweight
Undefeated WBO #6 rated fighter Liam Paro has made a statement in his last two step up fights.
Paro (15-0, 11 KOs) is a 22 year-old Australian southpaw. He currently holds the Interim WBO Asia-Pacific super lightweight title, winning it by knock out against Robert Tlatlik in October.
Paro did what nobody has been able to do in stopping Tlatlik, who didn’t answer the bell to start the eighth round.
The young southpaw is in a very deep division. Names like Regis Prograis, Josh Taylor, Jose Ramirez, Kiryl Relikh and Maurice Hooker top the list. Thereafter, you have contenders like Jack Catterall, Mario Barrios and Viktor Postol amongst others that are very respectable.
Paro has won the Australian super lightweight title along with the WBO Youth super lightweight title. He has also knocked out every undefeated fighter he has faced as a professional.
He is making a case for why he’s one of the rising stars in the division. With this many talented young fighters, the super lightweight division is quickly turning into one that is commanding our attention.
