Addressing a crowded press conference here, Badshah Pehalwan Khan said: “This will be a great wrestling event in Pakistan’s history as several renown professional wrestlers from 15 countries will feature in the event.”
Khan was flanked by former world champion Flesh Gordon and eminent wrestler Tiny Iron. He said boxing contests would introduce a new era of sports activities in Pakistan.
“The event will not only provide a new sort of entertainment to the people here but will also pave way for the return of international sports activities,” he added.
Badshah debuted in wrestling in October 2010 in France as a trainee and had his first pro wrestling match in January 2012.
The 22-year-old, who had competed against the best European pro wrestlers since his debut said, he wanted to tell the world that Pakistanis were peaceful people and lovers of sports.
“It had been my dream to see wrestling competitions in Pakistan and I’ve been trying for that for the past two years. Thank God, finally the wrestling competitions are going to take place here,” he said.
Flesh Gordon on the occasion said he had found Pakistanis sports lovers and was happy that professional wrestling would take place in such a nice country.
