DUBAI: Pakistan’s boxing star Muhammad Waseem made short work of his Filipino opponent Conrado Tanamor during their 52.5kg fight on Friday night.
Waseem, who holds an 8-1 record with six knockouts prior to the fight, connected with a three-left hand punch combination – the third one a crushing hook to the body – which sent Tanamor on the canvas during the first round, and the referee waving off the Filipino pugilist with a knockout loss.
