BCF to meet Westwood Boxing promoter today
January 23, 2018 12:16 am
The Boxing Commission of Fiji will have a meeting today to decide on the actual date of the boxing program that was released by the Westwood boxing promotion management.
Boxing promoter Praneel Dass mentioned in a press release yesterday, that his boxing program is set for the 16th of next month but the BCF will have to confirm on the given date.
BCF chair Sara Bulutani says, every promoter that plans for a program should get the approval of the board.
“Talking about the 16th of February, we are the mandated body that decides, and we will agree and endorse whether the promoter can extend or not and I’ve contacted the promoter but the board will sit and see if it’s possible because the procedure is once you miss the date, you have to join the que and that is to the promoters.”
Meanwhile, the Westwood Boxing promotion was supposed to be held on the 2nd of February but has now been cancelled after boxer Sebastian Singh failed to meet the accounted weight for the Asia Pacific Super Lightweight title fight against Australia’s Brent Dames.
