Muhammad Waseem Decisions Giemel Magramo, Retains WBC Belt

World Boxing Council (WBC) Silver flyweight champion Muhammad Waseem defeated Philippines’ Giemel Magramo in Seoul, South Korea on Sunday to successfully defend his title.

The Quetta-born boxer outplayed Magreamo in a tough 12-round fight and won a twelve round unanimous decision. The scores were 117-110, 114-113, 114-113. Magramo lost a point in the sixth round due to an accidental head clash that caused a cut on Waseem. The point deducation played a major role in the scoring as it prevented the fight from being scored a draw on two cards.

Magreamo was undefeated in his previous 17 bouts and previously held the WBC International flyweight belt. However, Waseem’s heroics put a dent in the Filipino’s record.

Waseem had captured the Silver title in July by defeating Jether Oliva in what was only his fourth professional bout.

Prior to the match, Waseem told media persons, “Magramo’s profile is good but it doesn’t intimidate me as I am also undefeated in my professional career.”

The 29-year-old has trained with Jeff Mayweather in Las Vegas the last few months and felt his hard work would reflect in the fight result.

“Only my coach and I know how much effort we’ve put into this. It is not easy and there is a lot of money and people involved; I ran almost 12 miles per day the last two months and went through 120 rounds of sparring,” said Waseem. “My preparation at the end of the day will make the difference in the ring.”

His sentiments were also echoed by his former sparring partner Arshad Hussain, who backed him for a win despite the formidable nature of the challenge.

“I think it will be his most difficult fight, but Waseem is the hardest working boxer I know. He will defend his title successfully,” said Arshad.

Waseem turned pro in October last year and already has five wins, including three knockouts, on his burgeoning CV.
