Muhammad Waseem has proven that perseverance and patience pay off and now he is on the verge of a world title fight. The Pakistani fighter is in a tough super flyweight division, but he has worked his way to the top and is a fighter we should keep an eye on.
He is 34 years old and was born in Pakistan. In his last fight he defeated Colombian Rober Barrera in eliminator bout and now he just has to wait to get his chance for a world title.
His career started in 2015 and from the beginning he showed his skills and in 2018 he got his first opportunity for the flyweight world title. Waseem lost to Moruti Mthalane by unanimous decision in his ninth professional fight but that did not mean a setback for him but rather it has given him the impetus to continue and try again.
Since then, he moved up to Super Flyweight where has won four fights, two of them by knockout. One of the most interesting characteristics of the “Falcon” is that he is tall for his weight class and knows how to use that to his advantage. He has been working on managing his energyto reach the final rounds in better condition, perhaps one of the weaknesses he has had.
Waseem is waiting for a new opportunity and he wants to make it happen. It’s not going to be an easy challenge but sooner rather than later he will be involved in a world title fight and it’s good the fans know who he is. His record is 12 wins, 1 loss and 8 knockouts, which speaks of his consistency and strength.
