Australia’s WBO No.3 light welterweight contender Liam Paro has left no stone unturned in preparation for the biggest fight of his career against Puerto Rico’s eighth-ranked Yomar Alamo on December 19 (Australian time).
Paro has enlisted a cavalcade of top-echelon sparring partners during his intense training camp in America in the lead-up to his first bout on US soil on the undercard of YouTube sensation-turned-boxer Jake Paul’s rematch with Tyron Woodley in Florida.
WBO junior lightweight champion Shakur Stevenson, WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney, former two-weight world champion Rances Barthelemy and former WBA interim lightweight champion Rolando Romero have all trained with Paro in the past month.
