Pakistani boxer Muhammad Waseem won his ninth professional bout after securing victory in the international ranking fight in Dubai.

Muhammad Waseem knocked out Conrado Tanamor of Philippines in the first round.

Waseem dedicated his victory to all the Kashmiris fighting for their freedom.

He then went on to be crowned the top-ranked boxer as per rankings released by the WBC for the month of June 2017.

Waseem is the first-ever boxer from Pakistan to be listed as number-one in the flyweight category.

He has several other accolades to his name, including bronze medals at the 2014 Asian Games and 2010 commonwealth games, plus a silver in Glasgow at the 2014 commonwealth games.
