ISLAMABAD - Pakistan’s Muzaffar Khan claimed the Arabian Sea Title Belt, knocking out his opponent Ahmad Samir Dawrani of Afghanistan in the fifth round of the 10-round high-voltage super welter bout at the Liaquat Gymnasium of Pakistan Sports Complex Islamabad on Saturday. In the first round, Muzaffar seemed somewhat in defensive mood as his opponent exhibited great aggression and agility. The 27-year-old Muzaffar kept on utilizing left punches more while his 29-year-old opponent made fine use of both right and left punches. At the end of second round, Muzaffar hit a powerful blow to Samir, rendering him senseless for a few moments. In the third round, Muzaffar hit another powerful punch that unsettled Samir but he was quick enough to come back to his feet again. In the fourth round, both the men exhibited great spirit as they fought with more vigor and prowess, keeping fans at the edge of their seats. At that time, it seemed that the result could go in favour of either side. But in the fifth round, it was Muzaffar who held his nerves as he hit a powerful and calculated punch to his opponent that floored him down. It was also the 10th straight win for Muzaffar in as many pro fights.
