UAE Visa Refusal Puts Mohammad Waseem’s Title Bout at Risk

The highly anticipated boxing match between Pakistani sensation Mohammad Waseem and Donnie Nietes of the Philippines, scheduled for July 22 in Dubai, hangs in the balance. Waseem had to put his dreams on hold when his visa application for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) was unexpectedly rejected.

Visa Rejection and Hope for Resolution

The setback occurred due to an unfortunate oversight by a member of Waseem’s team, who happens to be an Indian national. However, the three-time WBC world silver flyweight champion’s team acted swiftly, resubmitting the application with optimism for a positive response within the next 12-13 hours.

Possibility of Postponement

As time continues to pass, mounting worries arise about the possibility of having to delay the championship fight until late July or early August should the visa not be granted promptly. This disappointment is palpable for Waseem, who has been diligently training in Scotland to take on the formidable four-time world champion, Donnie Nietes.

Determined to Prove His Worth

Supported by Dubai-based Disrupt Promotions, the upcoming bout holds immense significance for Waseem, who boasts an impressive record of 12 victories out of his 14 professional fights. Despite past managerial setbacks, Waseem’s recent alliance with Disrupt Promotions has fueled his determination to showcase his skills in the ring and climb the flyweight rankings.
