Muhammad Waseem Knocks Out Ivan Trejos in Three Rounds

World Boxing Council (WBC) silver flyweight champion Muhammad Waseem (7-0, 5 KOs) picked up a third round knockout of Ivan Trejos in Panama.

This was the second fight for the 2014 Incheon Asian Games bronze medallist this month. He knocked out Panama’s Eliecer Valdez just a few days after he reached Panama for starting his preparation for a world title bout which is yet to be finalised.

“Trejos is high-ranked among local fighters in his weight category. He has also beaten some top fighters,” Waseem’s promoter Andy Kim told ‘The News’ from Korea on Thursday.

Kim said he would need Pakistan government’s support in his effort to arrange Waseem’s world title fight in South Korea.

“Waseem’s native Pakistan supported the fighter so he was able to train and fight in Panama. I hope Pakistan will again financially support Waseem so that his fast approaching historic world title fight could be arranged in Korea,” Kim said.

“I am hopeful that the Pakistan government will once again financially support Waseem so that Waseem does not have to challenge as a visitor,” Kim stressed.

When asked how much money he would need, Kim said: “More than the last time.”

Waseem, who had a bright career as amateur, shot to fame as pro when he won world silver title by beating Jether Oliva of the Philippines on July 17, 2016, in Korea. He went on to defend his crown on November 27 of last year, also in Korea, after downing dangerous fighter Giemel Magramo of the Philippines.

Jeff Mayweather, uncle of Floyd Mayweather Jr., is coaching Waseem in Panama.

Jeff is satisfied with Waseem’s preparation. “It’s going great.” 

After this fight he may move to Colombia for further training. Waseem is expected to face the flyweight world champion early next year.

Japan’s Diago Higa, the current WBC flyweight world champion, is expected to meet Andrew Selby who defeated Christopher Rosales of Nicaragua in the world title eliminator in Cardiff recently.
