“Pakistan lost to India today #ICCWorldCup2019 come July 12th I will avenge the loss and knock out Neeraj Goyat on our upcoming fight in #SaudiArabia,” he wrote on his Twitter account.
Admitting the potential in the team for victory, the British boxer has also extended offer to help Pakistan cricket team with fitness and dietary, where he thought it was lacking.
“Would love to help Pakistan cricket team with some advice on how to stay fit and strong. How to be disciplined on food, diet and training. The team has talent but need to improve on Strength & conditioning and focus,” he said.
Earlier, the former unified world welterweight champion had told media that Prime Minister Imran Khan would attend his fight against Goyat at King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah.
