Pakistan’s boxing star, Muhammad Wasim knocked out Philippines’ Conrado Tanamor in just 82 seconds in Dubai on Friday. The win has taken the 32-year-old boxer to the 9th place in the World Boxing Council (WBC) Flyweight Rankings.
The boxer has been bringing honors to Pakistan ever since his entry into the professional boxing in 2015, however, he hasn’t been getting the due acknowledgment.
A media outlet pointed out on his return that no one was there at the airport to receive the hero. In reply to a tweet, Wasim won the hearts of Pakistanis, yet again.
I’m not fighting to get istaqbals at the airport. I’m fighting so that Pakistan gets good Istaqbal all over the world.
The response prompted another legend, Wasim Akram to ‘apologize on behalf of Pakistanis’. He added that he himself will pick the boxer up from the airport after the next fight.
I apologise on the behalf of Pakistan, Sometimes we as a country need to be “smacked on the face” with the fist of reality to wake us up and remind us how we should be treating our hero’s. I’m picking you up from the airport next time myself! Massive congratulations on the win! https://t.co/i7K1S4l2jx
