WILD West Boxing promotions promoter Abdul Khan is promising more programs for our local fighters next year.

After staging a successful program last weekend where Samoa's Afakasi Pele Faumuina drew with Fiji's Abhay Chand, Khan said he wanted to set up more big fights in Fiji in the near future.

Khan said he was happy with his program in Nadi but he believed he could only improve from there.

"We had a good program in Nadi last Saturday even though the weather was not kind to us," Khan said.

"All boxers performed well so fans were not disappointed.

"I want to thank all the boxers who took part in the program for preparing well and giving there best in the ring," Khan said.

Khan also thanked the sponsors for helping him put together a very successful program.

"On behalf of Wild West Boxing Promotion I would like to thank all our sponsors for making this event a success.

"Even though the turnout was low because of weather conditions our sponsors' support made this event a hit."

Apart from major sponsor Pratap Ashpalt Quarry, the Wild West Boxing Promotions was also supported by Shop N Save, Wishbone, Bank of Baroda, Fun World Plaza Hotel, Coastal Rentals, Sports World, M Recht, Curry House Nadi, Zoom Video and Nadi Town Council.
