THEY call it the Mexican stand-off because no one wins and no one loses.
The origin of the saying came from an incident when two Mexicans had run into each other in a narrow street with their horse-drawn carriages and no one would take a step back.
According to the story the families and friends brought in their food and gave their support as they camped for days on that street. But in this case boxing fans and the sport itself stand to suffer if the stand-off between the Fiji Boxing Commission and Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee is not solved.
The new boxing commission is at loggerheads with FASANOC after the dissolution of the Fiji Boxing Association which runs amateur boxing in the country.
FASANOC has stood their ground and pointed out that the commission had no power to dissolve the FBA as they came under the world body and international organisations.
For the sake of the sport and its fans we hope FASANOC and the commission resolve their differences and get on with the ball game, because there's a whole lot of boxing we are missing out on.
Boxing is a growing sport and definitely an exciting one out there especially in the United States and United Kingdom.
For the Americans they are trying to revamp the sport in the Olympics where they had last won gold in the Olympics in 2004.
The All American heavyweight is a training entity founded by "Wheel of Fortune" TV syndicator Michael King and he eventually got into the mission of bringing premier athletes from all sports together to groom boxing's next great big man.
One of the USA gold hopefuls in the London Olympics is Dominic Breazeale the product of such effort.
A dream he couldn't have imagined just a few years ago in helmets and pads.
Back then and back there, the hulking Breazeale - who stands 6-foot-6 and weighs in at 260 pounds - was a quarterback pining for an NFL chance after two junior college seasons at Mt. San Antonio in suburban Los Angeles and two more Division II years with the University of Northern Colorado.
Several weeks in, upon getting tagged for the first time in a sparring session, Breazeale's transformation from signal-caller to prize fighter was complete.
Once the instinct was confirmed, the affection kicked in. Joining Breazeale in London will be 11 other members - nine males, two females - of a US team hoping to erase memories of the 2008 Games in Beijing, where heavyweight Deontay Wilder's bronze at was its only medal.
Meanwhile, in professional boxing two exciting heavyweight boxers have emerged from the United Kingdom. From Liverpool comes the current British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion David Price and he has been dubbed the 'Smiling Assasin'.
He is unbeaten in 12 fights and is regarded as the next world heavyweight champion. He is six foot 8 and half inches and next best boxer since former champ Lennox Lewis.
However, unbeaten also in Ireland is another heavyweight Tyson Fury, who also had the British and Commonwealth heavyweight title until he vacated it.
Tyson Fury, at six-foot nine, vacated his British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles after a proposed bout with English champion David Price fell through.
Fury's promoter Mick Hennessy claimed Price's camp rejected 100,000 to fight his man, who is unbeaten in 17 bouts. Tyson having been unbeaten in 17 fights is now chasing the world heavyweight title held by the Klitschko brothers Vladamir and Vitali.
"It's been an honour to have won and held both the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles, but as I'm now currently number seven in the world it's time to move on," said Fury.
The latest boxing action of the two British unbeaten heavyweights are available with local video outlets and so as other American boxing title fights.
The government sponsored Fiji Boxing Commission under the Ministry of Youth and Sports has been given the green light to clean up the sport in Fiji and start anew with its administration. Led by new chairman John Rabuku the Commission has obliterated every boxing organization professional and now amateurs including the Fiji Boxing Council and Professional Boxing and Wrestling Association that had been in charge of the state of affairs for many decades.
Now the commission is working on registration of all boxers, officials, promoters and boxing bodies and everyone has got to have a licence to be part of the sports and had held workshops in Suva, Lautoka and the North to familiarise the boxing fraternity with the new rules and regulations.
In time perhaps someone will copy the Americans and initiate an All Fijian heavyweight training entity with the mission of bringing premier athletes from all sports together to groom boxing's next great big man.
So it is in the interest of boxing that everything is solved amicably soon and the waiting public get to see their favourite boxers once again.
Our generation owe it to the champions and pugilists of past years who shed blood and got hit in the rings that we see that the sport reach new heights and even win us medals in major tournaments like the Olympic Games.
If not for all their effort and sacrifice would have amounted to nothing.
