Waseem clinches top spot in WBC Flyweight Ratings


KARACHI: Pakistani boxer Muhammad Waseem climbed to the top of the World Boxing Council (WBC) ratings for the Flyweight category on Saturday and qualified for the World Title fight.

The Quetta-born boxer will take on Japanese Daigo Higa in September this year.

Waseem will start practicing as well as participate in more fights after Eid to prepare for the big occasion.

“Waseem is a hard-working and brave athlete and there’s no opponent who can intimidate him,” Waseem’s Korean promoter Andy Kim said.

Waseem is currently the WBC Flyweight Silver Champion and has gone undisputed in all his five fights until now.
