Anoki said the purpose of his visit was also to promote peace in Pakistan through sports. “If someone wants to fight, he should fight inside the ring.”
He said that he was moved by the destruction caused by the earthquake in Balochistan and it was another reason to visit Pakistan to help the victims of catastrophe.
