Pakistan superstar Muhammad Waseem will have his first ever fight in his home country next month when he competes in Lahore, Pakistan.
Former world title challenger Waseem (10-1, 7 KOs) will compete at the Governor House on an Amir Khan Promotions event, taking place on December 19.
It sees ‘The Falcon’ have the chance to add another belt to his growing collection, with the fight set to be for the WBC Middle East Title.
Waseem said: “I want to say a very big thank you to my big brother, the two-time world champion Amir Khan, who has given me the opportunity that I have been waiting for to make my debut in Pakistan.
“This is where my journey started as an eight-year-old, and it was always my dream to fight for a title in my home country, so this opportunity means so much to me.
“This will be history for Pakistan as it is the first ever WBC boxing event in Pakistan, and I want to thank my management team MTK Global and my coaches Danny Vaughan and Dominic Vaughan too.
“They are preparing me to be in the best shape, and have prepared me for war. I promise I will not let my country and my team down.”
