Waseem is all set to defend his WBC Silver Flyweight title
Pakistan’s only pro boxer, the World Boxing Council (WBC) Silver Flyweight champion, Muhammad Waseem is ready to defend his title against Philippines’ Giemel Magramo on November 27 in South Korea.
Waseem won the title in only fourth fight of his professional career, he has been unbeaten so far and has beaten three of his opponents through knockout.
Magramo, who is ranked at 14th rank in the world has been undefeated for his 17 fights and have knocked out of 13 of his opponents. Despite of Filipino’s impressive record so far, Waseem’s agent, Andy Kim seems extremely confident and says that the Pakistani boxer will not find it tough to floor his opponent.
“Waseem is not going to have any problems winning this fight,” a confident Kim told The Express Tribune. “He has been in the best form and has been training extremely hard.”
Waseem, who is ranked 65 in the world ranking at the moment, is likely to challenge Román Gonzalez to box for the WBC Super Flyweight crown. According to Kim, the newly turned pro boxer needs to have a solid profile before taking on Gonzalez.
Andy Kim is firm that the 29-year old will knockout his opponent in the upcoming bout.
“The fight against Magramo will certainly be a battle but we will most likely see Waseem knocking him out in the sixth or seventh round,” he added.
