Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa met Pakistani boxer Muhammad Waseem in Rawalpindi on Wednesday. COAS Gen Bajwa assured the boxer of full support for his boxing engagements.
Waseem, 32, is Pakistan’s most prominent pugilist and had an unbeaten record until he copped his first defeat against South Africa’s Moruti Mthalane last year.
The trajectory of Chaman-born’s career, however, has been bogged by financial issues. Last week, he knocked out a Filipino opponent in record time during a professional bout.

A player after making it to the national team cannot learn the way a youngster can: Javed Miandad

“It does not matter which Sri Lankan players visit and Pakistan must only look to put up their best performances regardless of the visitors’ squad quality,” Miandad told APP.
Miandad, however, believed that Sri Lanka Cricket should take action against their players who prioritise foreign T20 leagues over international duty.
