Liam Walsh, a British professional boxer born on 18 May 1986, had an impressive early career alongside his twin brother, Ryan, and their elder brother, Michael. He made his professional boxing debut on 2 February 2008 at London’s Excel Arena, sharing the bill with Olympic silver medalist Amir Khan. All three brothers secured victories in their debuts.
In his first fight, Liam Walsh faced journeyman Daniel Thorpe and secured a quick first-round win. Reflecting on the victory, Walsh mentioned, “I knocked him down, but he managed to get back up. I caught him with a solid right hand, and I don’t think he was up for the challenge after that.” After this successful start, Walsh continued to build on his record, earning wins over journeymen Johnny Greaves and Youssef Al Hamidi in 2008, and defeating Shaun Walton, Baz Carey, and Jon Baguley in 2009.
Throughout 2010, Walsh continued his winning streak, extending his record to 9 wins with no defeats. He achieved victories over opponents such as Sid Razak, Ibrar Riyaz, and Frenchman Sebastien Cornu, showcasing his prowess as a rising star in the sport. Over the years, Liam Walsh and his twin brother Ryan both made significant strides in their professional boxing careers, with Ryan also gaining prominence as a skilled boxer.
