Muhammad Waseem beats Mexico’s Ganigan López

This is Pakistani boxer's 10th professional win.


Muhammad Waseem has defeated former two-time World champion Ganigan Lopez in World Title fight on Friday at Ceasars Palace Dubai in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.

The former amateur standout and current flyweight contender picked up his second straight win this year following a winless 2018 campaign, outpointing Lopez over eight rounds.

Waseem was able to control the pace largely on the strength of his steady jab. The scores were 80-73 and 77-75.

Waseem has previously returned to the win column following a 1st round knockout in this very venue this past September.

Known as Falcon, the 32-year-boxer, has so far fought 10 fights in his pro career, winning all but one, that was a unanimous decision loss to South Africa’s Moruti Mthalane in a world title bout.

Muhammad Waseem is still in search of his first major belt in the pro ranks. However, Friday’s win is Waseem’s second straight as he improves to 10-1 (8KOs).
