ISLAMABAD: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa met boxer Muhammad Waseem on Wednesday, congratulating him over his recent victory.

A picture of the army chief with Muhammad Waseem was shared by DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor on Twitter.
“COAS met boxer Muhammad Waseem at his office. Congratulated him for the recent achievement bringing honour for the country. “Talent like you is our pride, we are here to support youngsters like you having potential and positive energy”, said General Bajwa.”

Muhammad Waseem shocked the world when he knocked out Philippines’ Conrado Tanamor in the first round of their bout in Dubai last week.

However, his victory went unnoticed back home and no one in particular picked him up from the airport when he came back to Pakistan.

Fast bowler Wasim Akram apologised for the nation and said that next time, he would pick up boxer Muhammad Waseem from the airport whenever he returned to the country.
