THE Boxing Commission of Fiji will review scorecards from the Naidiri Boxing Promotions program after claims of unfair decisions were made.
Controversy surrounded the main bout between Filipino Rey Anton Olarte and Opeti Tagi where a judge gave the decision in the favour of the local boxer who was floored three times.
Judges Jerry Ledua and Joeli Sauqaqa scored in favour of Olarte 96-91 and 99-96 respectively.
Judge Inoke Yagomate scored 94-93 in favour of Tagi.
Olarte's manager George Reno said his boxer won "fair and square".
He said if the full verdict would have gone against Olarte then it would have been hard to get overseas boxers to Fiji because of the wrong decisions.
"Two of the judges got their scorecards right while the other guy I thought did not know what was happening," Reno said.
"We won the fight fair and square as Rey knocked him down three times. If Rey would have lost that fight on points then it would be hard to get boxers to Fiji from Australia and New Zealand knowing that he had won the fight.
"Opeti is a strong boy and we will give him a rematch. Maybe we can get Opeti to Australia if he wants to fight. But a rematch would be good here.
"I would like to thank all the fans for turning up in the rain. Hopefully the Nadi Town Council with the business community can build an indoor facility so it could be fantastic for the sport."
BCF board member Malakai Veisamasama said the program turned out well despite Rey being flown over as a last-minute replacement.
"But we will probably need to look at how some of the judging scorecards were tallied."
Former BCF director Allen Harris said judging was one area the parent body needed to look at.
He said unfair decisions discouraged the boxers.
"I don't know how someone can give the fight to Opeti when he is knocked down three times," Harris said.
"That's basically a two point deduction on each knockdown. Opeti only won two rounds clearly in the fight.
"With the knockdown it should have been at least a six point decision. We really have to look at our judging. The fans probably walk away and say that it is just another decision but it hurts the boxers."
"It affects their future and it's not fair."
Junior Maku's camp also expressed disappointment with the draw result reached by the judges in his fight against Junior Naivogo.
