Muhammad Waseem defeats Jether Oliva at WBC, wins Silver flyweight title

Pakistan’s only professional boxer Muhammad Waseem Sunday defeated Philippines’ Jether Oliva for World Boxing Council (WBC) Silver flyweight title in Seoul. Earlier, Waseem wrapped up his sparring sessions on Monday, as he took on Moon Sun Jung at the training. According to Waseem’s Manager Andy Kim, the 28-year-old was in his best shape for the most important bout of his life and winning the title will change his career. “He is in great form, and Korean boxers aren’t on his level,” Kim told the media. “He sparred against amateur national Korean boxers here but he dominated them, so we are looking at a good fight against Jether Oliva. It will be a big feat for him to win the WBC title as he will get his name among the top boxers in the circuit,” he added. The Quetta-based pugilist had previously secured knockout wins in all three of his professional bouts and also had an impressive amateur record with 2014 Commonwealth Games silver medal and 2010 World Combat Games gold medal to his name.

    Fantastic and encouraging. Someone promising to improve image of the country. The authorities should encourage him and find sponsors for him before it is too late. Even the Lady purse selling Body builder from Lahore who won a gold medal in US,has complained not to find sponsors.
