Liam Paro vs Brock Jarvis Date Confirmed After Minor Delay
Promoter Eddie Hearn told Fox Sports Australia this week that the much-anticipated all-Australian clash between unbeaten 140-pounders Liam Paro and Brock Jarvis would take place on Saturday, October 15 with an official announcement coming next week.
Liam Paro vs Brock Jarvis will take place at the South Bank Piazza, South Brisbane, Queensland, Australia on the same weekend as the rematch between George Kambosos Jr and Devin Haney. Although an official broadcaster is not confirmed, the fight is expected to be on Fox Sports in Australia and DAZN around the world.
On the Paro Jarvis undercard, Demsey McKean will be in a ‘big heavyweight fight’ and Skye Nicolson will challenge for her first title as a professional according to Hearn. Hearn expects to make several all-Australian fights on the undercard as well potentially involving his new signing.
Paro (22-0 13 KOs) is ranked #1 with the WBO at 140lbs and the Brisbane star will aim to kick off Matchroom’s new era Down Under in style on his home turf. The 26-year-old inked a promotional pact with Hearn in December after seeing off the unbeaten Yomar Alamo in Tampa, Florida on his American debut.
Jarvis (20-0 18 KOs) also comes into the bout on the back of his first fight on US soil, where the New South Wales ace came out on top in a wild shootout with Alejando Rodriguez with a fifth-round stoppage in Fresno, California. The 24-year-old recorded his 18th win inside the distance from 20 fights that night, and the fans can expect an all-action affair as Hearn and Matchroom break into the Australian market.
