Knockout King Matias Eyes Title Defense vs Paro

Matias vs Paro Odds

Subriel Matias puts his IBF Super Lightweight title on the line against Liam Paro on Saturday night.

The 32-year-old Puerto Rican is the -835 favorite with Matias vs Paro odds, and it’s not hard to see why.

He is 20-1, and all 20 wins came by knockout, so Paro could be in for a short night in Manati.

It’s the premier fight on the boxing card, and we’re looking forward to the main event.

Matias vs Paro

Date & Time: Saturday, June 15th, 7:30 p.m. ET
Where: Coliseo Juan Aubín Cruz Abreu Manatí, Puerto Rico

Paro Ready for Title Challenge

The 28-year-old Australian looks ready to fight for a world championship belt, having won the WBO Global title against Montana Love.

Paro has had some tough fights throughout his career, including wins against Yomar Alamo and Brock Jarvis.

He came through those fights on the right side of the ledger, and he’s yet to lose from 24 professional fights.

Unbeaten records don’t always mean everything, but he has been fighting against decent opponents, so the +535 line with Matias vs Paro odds can’t be completely overlooked.

His boxing schedule has been well-spaced, and although he doesn’t have the same knockout power as Matias, he knocked out Love in the sixth round of his most recent fight.

Love was knocked down twice, and he couldn’t it back up for the judges’ count, so Paro should take a great deal of confidence into this fight. However, fighting in Puerto Rico makes life harder.

“I am a fighter, and fighter’s fight, and I’m proving that, not only by fighting the guy that’s the most avoided in the division, but going to his backyard to do so. I’ve always said I’ll fight anyone, and I’m showing that,” Paro said.

“There’s a world title on the line and that’s what you dream about as a kid – winning world titles – and what better way to do it than to take out the number one guy in the division?”

Matias Makes Them Quit

Matias has yet to face a judges’ decision, and that’s because he makes his opponents quit.

The 32-year-old won his last five fights via retirement, including a win over Petros Ananyan, whom Matias suffered his only career loss to in 2020.

It was a good bounce back against Ananyan, and as Paro said, there haven’t been too many fighters wanting to take him on.

Boxing betting sites have Matias at -835 to win for a reason, and that’s because he was been destroying his opponents, including Shohjahon Ergashev in Las Vegas to retain his IBF title.

Ergashev was considered a top-level opponent, but Matias got him out of the ring in Round 6, and it was an impressive display.

This shows that his level of power is tough to overlook, and most of his recent fights have come in the U.S., so he would love to head back to Puerto Rico, where it all began.

He’s a confident fighter, which is needed to be the best in the division.

“There is no-one in the 140lb division that can beat me. It might sound arrogant, but I’ll show you. I trust myself and what I do, and that makes me dangerous. My mind is my weapon,” Matias said.

“As far as I know, he’s been knocked down a couple of times. I don’t want to knock him down; I want him to suffer and leave a strong message to the division. I know Liam is strong, he’s brave, he has good technique. But he also has a big mouth.”

It has been a battle of words during the lead-up to the fight, but Matias knows he has the power to finish the Australian.

That’s why Matias vs Paro odds have the total rounds line at 7.5. The sportsbook doesn’t expect them to get to the 12th and final round.

Matias’ KO Streak to Continue

Paro is a quality boxer, but there is a reason why people in his division have avoided facing Matias.

He’s a knockout artist, and also one of the more intelligent boxers in the game, so we expect him to win by knockout.

We haven’t seen enough from Paro to suggest the fight will go any other way, which is why bettors get -350 for Matias to win by knockout.

It’s a short price for the prop market, but when you’re 100% in knocking people out from 20 wins, the stats speak for themselves.

Include Matias by KO (-350) in your boxing picks this weekend.
