Pakistani boxer Waseem wins WBC Silver flyweight title

Proficient Pakistani boxer Muhammad Waseem Khan on Sunday secured the World Boxing Council (WBC) Silver Flyweight title in an intense battle against Philippines’ Jether Oliva at the Millenium Hilton Hotel in Seoul.

President Mamnoon Hussain, Chief Minister Balochistan Sanaullah Zehri, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, and different pioneers complimented the boxer over his win. Balochistan Sports Minister Mir Mujeebur Rehman declared a Rs0.5 million prize for Muhammad Waseem after his triumph.

At first it was a standard battle yet WBC a month ago transformed it into a world silver title battle. The triumph launches the 28-year-old Pakistani boxer among the main four on the planet.

Muhammad Waseem, who hails from Quetta, arranged for the battle under well known coach Jeff Mayweather at the boxing club of prestigious boxer Floyd Mayweather Junior in Las Vegas. Jeff is the uncle of Floyd Mayweather Junior, one of the world’s most noteworthy boxers of his time.

Waseem appears to be a standout amongst the most fit and promising youthful boxers that Pakistan has delivered as of late.

Prior to this match, Waseem had played just three battles and won all of them.

The Pakistani boxer, who changed over to master boxing early a year ago, made a fantasy introduction when he thumped out.

Korea’s Min Wook Lee in the ninth round to win the Korean Boxing Commission (KBC) title on October 4, 2015.

He thumped out Suparyanto Doglo of Indonesia in the third round in his second session in Bangkok on December 5, 2015.

His last triumph came against Indonesia’s Bajawa whom he thumped out in Seoul the other month.

Waseem is an uncommon warrior as he started his expert profession straightforwardly with a ten-round battle. He picked to do as such in light of the fact that he had the certainty as he had won a few worldwide decorations, including an Asian Games bronze, amid his novice vocation which was harmed by absence of assets and legislative issues inside the Pakistan Boxing Federation (PBF).
