RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa has congratulated boxer Muhammad Waseem who defeated Philippines’ Conrado Tanamor in the first round of their fight in Dubai.

Gen Bajwa met the boxer at his office and congratulated him for the recent achievement bringing honour for the country.

Commending his performance, the army chief said: “Talent like you is our pride, we are here to support youngsters like you having potential and positive energy.”

The star boxer returned after winning in spectacular style on Friday by knocking out his Filipino opponent within 82 seconds of the opening round.

Waseem's win went unnoticed  as he was  ignored upon arrival at the airport. No official was present when he returned to country.

Bowling legend  Wasim Akram issued a public apology  on behalf of Pakistan  to  the boxer. He reminded the nation how we should remember our heroes.
