Pakistan Boxing Council: Baluchistan boxer claims heavyweight title

LAHORE (APP): Balochistan's boxer Mohib claimed the heavyweight category title of the Pakistan Boxing Council-organised All Pakistan Professional Challenge Belt on Monday.

Held under the AIBA professional boxing rules at Quetta's Yazdan Khan Government High School, Mohib held Muhammad Ali of Peshawar for full six rounds to have a split points decision.

Mohib played brilliantly to keep Ali at bay throughout the six rounds of three minutes each. In the end Mohib was clearly the winner of the title.

The winners of the bouts were given Rs 6000 each while the losing boxers were given Rs 3000.

PBC President Ifraz Khan along with its secretary Rasheed Baloch and their team are holding the professional boxing on self help basis. During this challenge belt competition two bouts were lined up as in today's fight Mohib was the winner, Muhammad Aslam of Pishin won his light welter weight bout against Asadullah in 64 kgs weight category.

The next round of the PBC bouts would be held most likely at Gujranwala in September and during that event Mohib and Aslam may defend their titles. Bouts in two more weight categories will be held in coming day which will be decided by the PCB committee comprising Iran, Rasheed, Vice president Javed Ashiq Punjab, Hameed Baloch Balochistan, Muhammad Zahoor KPK, executive secretary Shehzad Memon, Medical Chairman Dr Amjad Rahim, Advisors Commander Muhammad Ali, while Usman Ullah and Fahad Khan.
