Wazeer, Somphot Make Weight, Ready for War for WBO-147 Youth World in Thailand


PhilBoxing.com




BANGKOK, Kingdom of Thailand -- Pakistan's Golden Boy Usman Wazeer (8-0, 5 KO's), the young hard-punching warrior recognized as Pakistan's top Pound-4-Pound boxer - as well as the country's most popular one since Amir Khan with a large exciting fan-base in the Islamic Republic - is more than ready to wage war for the vacant WBO Youth 147lbs World Title in the coming Highland Boxing Show set for September 28 at the plush SpacePlus Night Club, RCA Plaza, here in "The City of Angels," Bangkok, Kingdom of Thailand.

For the battle Wazeer and his opponent brave Thai warrior Somphot Seesa nade weigh, looking strong and more than ready to rumble.

The 22-year-old Usman Wazeer, born in the banks if the legendary Astore River in Northern Pakistan, has arrived in Thailand to battle tough, glory-hungry Thai warrior Somphot Seesa, 23, for the World's WBO Youth strap, a war that could get the movie-star-looking Usman into the WBO's welterweight world ranking.

That's an awesome opportunity that could open golden doors. However, the war is not at all an easy mission for any of two young boxers wanting to make their mark in the awesome sport of Fury, Canelo and Inoue.

That’s why boxing fans here in Thailand, as well as in Pakistan, wonder who will emerge victorious; and how will that win be?

Already the Asian Welterweight Champion for the WBA - after his KO win over hard-hitting Phatiphan Krungklang last June in Gilgit - Usman Wazeer has pressed on training, aiming at winning the coveted diadem he wats: the WBO Welterweight Youth World title.

Will he claim it?



Throwing heavy-artillery at him will be fearless, hard-swinging Thai warrior Somphot Seesa, a disciplined, strong, dangerous man of combat with a fantastic team backing him, as well as goals and ambitions of his own.

Formerly a Muay Thai combatant, Somphot Seesa, born in the "Gold Basin" of Ang Thong in Central Thailand, waits for battle night here in Bangkok, focused on cornering the visiting Pakistani fighter into a big, punishing storm of leather. Will that happen?

After the fog vanishes, who will claim victory, becoming "The New" WBO Youth Welterweight World Champion," as well as new World-Ranked Welterweight?
