Waseem Akram apologises to Boxer Mohammad Waseem on behalf of the Pakistani nation

ISLAMABAD - Waseem Akram apologises to Boxer Mohammad Waseem on behalf of the Pakistani nation.

Pakistan’s boxing star, Muhammad Wasim knocked out Philippines’ Conrado Tanamor in just 82 seconds in Dubai on Friday. The win has taken the 32-year-old boxer to the 9th place in the World Boxing Council (WBC) Flyweight Rankings.

The boxer has been bringing honors to Pakistan ever since his entry into the professional boxing in 2015, however, he hasn’t been getting the due acknowledgment. Every fight, every camp, every training, every tour, is another opportunity for me to show the boxing world the world-class boxing talent Pakistan has.

A media outlet pointed out on his return that no one was there at the airport to receive the hero. In reply to a tweet, Wasim won the hearts of Pakistanis, yet again.

I’m not fighting to get *istaqbals* at the airport. I’m fighting so that Pakistan gets good *Istaqbal* all over the world.

The response prompted another legend, Wasim Akram to ‘apologize on behalf of Pakistanis’. He added that he himself will pick the boxer up from the airport after the next fight.
