Korean based Pakistani fighter Muhammad Waseem (2-0, 2) will return to the ring on March 19th as he looks to extend his perfect record, and keep alive his dreams of, one day, fighting for a world title.
The promising 28 year old will be facing off against Indonesian fighter John Bajawa (11-12, 7) at the Myoung Boxing World, in the Korean capital of Seoul and will be expected to pick up his third successive victory as he continues his exciting career.
The former Pakistan amateur standout turned professional last year when he signed with promoter Andy Kim, of AK Promotions, and it was the promotional outfit that released the details of the bout late last week on their official facebook page.
At the moment details on the card are scarce, with no under-card having been mentioned and no bout list available on the KBC website, but we suspect that AK will try and put on more than just the single bout.
For those who haven't followed Waseem's career as a professional he debuted last year in a KBC Bantamweight title fight, stopping the game Min Wook Lee in the 9th round, and the returned in December to stiop Suparyanto Doglo in Bangkok. This bout sees him fighting for the first time in Seoul though it's hard to see anything but a stoppage for the much touted "Falcon", who has been training in both America at the Mayweather Gym, and in Japan, where AK now have a gym.
As for Bajawa his name will be familiar with hardcore Asian fans as he has faced a small "who's who" including Ryo Matsumoto, Melvin Gumban, Yushi Tanaka, Rex Tso and Petchbarngborn Kokietgym.
