Maqsood Ahmed explains how Jahangir Khan was too strong for all his rivals

"I won the world amateur in 1977 in Toronto and Jahangir won the world amateur in Australia in 1979. And yes, he was a very hard worker. Mostly we trained together in England and Pakistan and I could see him improving all the time. After seeing his hard work, we all knew that this boy would definitively become a world champion. I have seen many of the best players like Geoff Hunt, Qamar Zaman and Jansher Khan who all had different styles and different techniques, but Jahangir was too quick for them all on the court. He played with a strong mind and enormous stamina."

Maqsood Ahmed, who in 1977 became the first player to win the Pakistani Amateur and Open titles in the same year and retained a world top ten ranking for over decade, remembers Jahangir Khan, universally recognised as the world’s greatest ever player.
