Pakistan's top boxer Mohammad Waseem makes yet another historic international win

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan's top boxer Mohammad Waseem makes yet another historic international win.

Mohammad Waseem, on Friday won the 10th professional bout of his career, outclassing Mexico’s Ganigan Lopez in an intense battle of eight rounds.

Waseem, who has an outstanding career record of 9-1, confidently entered the ring to face his Mexican opponent — a former world champion — and remained in control throughout the bout in super flyweight.

The Pakistani boxer, who’s also known as Falcon, was declared the winner unanimously at the end of eight rounds.

All of the judges gave their verdict in favour of Waseem and he was adjudged 77-75 by judges Yuji Fukuchi and Ahmed Gharib, while Gary Kitanoski gave him 80-73 points.

This was 10th professional title of Waseem, who had defeated Philipinnes' Conrado Tanamor at the same venue in September.

His latest win, at the Rotunda Rumble, gains him ranking points to make his way clear for the title fight.
