PROFESSIONAL BOXING CAREER

Muhammad Waseem turned professional in June 2015 and signed the contract with Korean Promoter Andy Kim at AK Promotion. In his first professional fight, he won the vacant South Korea bantamweight title.

He also won his second professional fight at the Myoung Boxing World in Seoul, South Korea. In July 2016, Waseem made history by becoming the first Pakistani to win the WBC Silver flyweight title. Waseem made his first defence of his WBC Silver title on 27 November 2016 at the Gwanakgu Hall in Seoul where he successfully defended it by unanimous decision win. 

After becoming the number 1 mandatory for the WBC flyweight title, Waseem competed in a 6 round non-title fight on 5 July, 2017 in Panama where he registered fourth knockout win of his professional career. Waseem fought for the second time in the space of a month on July 29 at the Gimnasio Municipal in Puerto Armuelles, Panama and knocked out Ivan Trejos (7-7-2, 1 KO) in the third round of a scheduled 8 round fight.

Waseem next fought on 30 September, once again in Panama against Jose Luis Calvo where the fight ended in Waseem being victorious, retaining his number 1 position in the WBC rankings.

In April 2018, it was reported that Waseem would fight former IBF world champion Moruti Mthalane (35-2, 24 KOs) on the Manny Pacquiao vs. Lucas Mattyhsse undercard on 15 July in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for the vacant IBF flyweight title. The fight was originally scheduled to be an eliminator, until Donnie Nietes vacated on 11 April in order to make a full move to super flyweight.

However, Waseem lost to Mthalane via unanimous decision thus failing to capture his first world title. This has been his only loss of entire professional career. 

Thus the Pakistani boxer, Waseem, holds an incredible professional record of total nine fights with only a single loss while winning seven of bouts through KOs and one via stoppage, and now has stepped up to fight against former World Boxing Championship-Light flyweight Champion, Ganigan Lopez of Mexico this time, who owns the record of 36-9 after 45 professional fights.
