Pakistan’s promising boxer Muhammad Shoaib Khan has won the Asian Boxing Federation (ABF) Lightweight Championship after defeating Indonesia’s Hendrik Barongsay in a title fight.

According to the 24NewsHD TV channel on Wednesday, Shoaib outclassed his opponent as he remained unbowed in the 10-round fight to claim 117 points compared to Barongsay’s 57.

Known as “the Coolest Boy”, Shoaib clinched his third consecutive victory to earn the professional ABF title as he earlier outclassed Thai Boxer Sornram in September to qualify for the title bout.

The 25-year-old Quetta-born boxer, Shoaib, will now have the opportunity to feature in the bigger events.

 After his sensational win, the national boxer dedicated his victory to the people of Pakistan, saying “it has always been my dream to raise the green crescent flag all over the world”. He said that he was determined to take on the world’s best fighters. “I promise I will not let down my nation as I feel myself fully prepared to outshine the best boxers,” he added.
