Heavyweight boxer Ali Mazaheri said on Wednesday that he had sustained a back injury but will be ready for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
"I'm sure that I will be injury-free during the Olympics. I am 80 percent ready and the doctors have told me there is no worry ahead of the Olympics," Mazaheri said.
Iran has not yet won a medal in boxing. Mazaheri is set to end the title drought. "I want to make the Iranian people happy. That's why I am here. I will be fully fit for the event and I will do my best to win a medal," Mazaheri said.
Ali Mazaheri claimed the gold medal in the 2006 Asian Games in Doha.
The 2012 Olympic Games are scheduled to take place in London from 27 July to 12 August 2012.
