Pakistan’s Muhammad Waseem beat Colombia’s Roper Barrera via unanimous decision in a light flyweight world title eliminator watched by a star-studded audience at The Space in Dubai on Friday night.

The judges awarded Waseem the victory 115-113, 115-114 and 117-111 on the scorecards as the Pakistani improved his professional record to 12 victories against one loss with eight knockouts.

The victory was his fourth since losing a decision to Moruti Mthalane for the IBF flyweight title in 2018.

Waseem, 34, suffered a cut above his left eye caused by a clash of heads in the opening round and it became worse as the fight continued.
