BOXING Commission of Fiji officials and a doctor will visit Junior Farzan Ali today to confirm his inability to fight.
BCF board member Malakai Veisamasama told this newspaper they had nominated a doctor to carry out a medical check-up on Farzan.
Over the weekend, numerous reports surfaced that Farzan had pulled out of his match with Opeti Tagi.
The two have been scheduled to slug it out for Farzan's welterweight title in the 12x3 rounds main event under Naidiri Boxing Promotions banner at Nadi's Prince Charles Park this Saturday.
Yesterday, Farzan said he injured his hand while training and his doctor advised him not to train with an injured hand.
He said he would make further comments after the BCF nominated doctor completes the medical check-up.
Veisamasama said the BCF would also wait for the doctor's results to make any comments on the issue.
"There are a number of options that we can take but it all depends on the doctor's results," he said.
"If the results confirm Farzan is injured then it's OK and if it says that Farzan is fit to fight then he will have to fight."
Naidiri Boxing Promotions spokesman Mohammed Ali said they would not cancel the event just because one boxer pulled out. "The remaining fights would go on as scheduled because fans have already bought tickets and we cannot cancel the event because one boxer is injured," Ali said.
