Liam Paro Upsets Subriel Matias To Claim Ibf Super Lightweight Title In Puerto Rico

Australia’s rising boxing star, Liam Paro, achieved a stunning upset victory in Puerto Rico, dethroning Subriel Matias to claim the IBF super lightweight title.

The intense showdown took place at the iconic Coliseo Juan Aubin Cruz Abreu in Manati, where Paro emerged victorious in front of a fervent crowd.

Hailing from Queensland, Paro’s strategic approach and skillful boxing secured him a unanimous decision win over the defending champion, Matias, who suffered his first loss in five fights.

Matias, known for his knockout prowess, was expected to dominate Paro, but the Australian southpaw had other plans, showcasing a blend of footwork, speed, and precision to outmaneuver his opponent.

Referee Luis Pabon’s controversial point deduction against Paro in the seventh round stirred outrage, with commentators criticizing the decision as unwarranted.

Despite the referee’s intervention and the boisterous home support for Matias, Paro remained composed and relentless, ultimately securing his 25th career victory and the IBF world title.

With this remarkable win, Paro joins fellow Queensland boxer Jai Opetaia as Australians holding prestigious world titles in boxing.

Viewers worldwide were able to witness this historic event live on the popular streaming platform DAZN, further solidifying Paro’s status as a rising star in the super lightweight division.
