Top international wrestlers to tour Pakistan for bouts
KARACHI: Some of world’s top wrestlers will be seen in action in international bouts to be held in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad during May this year, a spokesman of Pakistan Wrestling Entertainment disclosed on Monday.
“We are planning to hold bouts in three major cities involving around 20 wrestlers,” said Zeeshan Bashir, Director of PWE Middle East on his arrival with four wrestlers from Dubai.
The wrestlers who landed here at the Quaid-e-Azam International Airport included Tiny Iron (USA), Flesh Gordon (France), Yaseen Usmani (Algeria) and Badshah Pehalwan Khan (Pakistan/USA).
A press conference by the PWE officials and wrestlers will be held here at Hotel Movenpick on Tuesday.
He expressed hope that the successful staging of these action bouts will enhance the soft image of Pakistan.
Zeeshan added that while the organisers have various options in mind for the venue of the bouts, they are planning to stage the opening leg of bouts at National Stadium in view of the greater public interest in Karachi for the wrestling event.
