Liam Paro says he’s got the boxing IQ to dethrone IBF light welterweight champion Subriel Matias this Saturday, June 15th, in their headliner, live on DAZN at the Coliseo Juan Aubin Cruz Abreu in Manati, Puerto Rico.

Paro’s Recent Victories Fuel Confidence

#5 IBF Paro (24-0, 15 KOs) is confident from his recent knockout victories over Montana Love and Brock Jarvin. He feels those victories show that he’s improved his game enough to defeat the IBF champion Matias (20-1, 20 KOs) on Saturday night.

The Australian Paro, 28, was matched against the ideal guys in his last two fights to make him look good because those guys were a couple of flawed fighters who weren’t top-echelon contenders.

Before fighting them, Paro had struggled badly, squeaking by Yomar Alamo by a ten-round split decision in 2021.

Alamo is the same fighter that Richardson Hitchins stopped in eight rounds in 2022. That puts things in perspective.

While the southpaw Paro is a good fighter, he might not be what he appears to be, and if he’s not, Matias will chop him up on Saturday night like he’s done with his last five opponents.

Paro’s Preparation and Mindset

“I’m more than ready for June 15th. I’ve had a beautiful camp with beautiful sparring and preparation. We’re surely prepared for this task,” said Liam Paro to Secondsout, discussing his fight this Saturday night against IBF light welterweight champion Subriel Matias on DAZN in Puerto Rico.

“We know what Matias brings to the table. That’s his style. It’s worked well for him. I don’t see him stepping away from that style. I believe I have the boxing ability and the IQ to beat this guy. I keep having these tests and I keep passing them with flying colors against the very best, and that’s what it’s all about.

“I had a beautiful win over Montana Love and Matchroom signed Subriel Matias and I got offered that opportunity with the IBF title. I always want to fight for a title, this is my dream, so why not? I want to fight the best names. It hit two birds with one stone with that one.

“I won a lot of fans over on that night, and that’s what I’ll continue to do with my career,” said Paro about his win against Love last December. “It was exactly the fight we needed and the outcome that we needed to get back to where we needed to be,” said Paro.
