THE Boxing Commission of Fiji (BCF) is looking at staging a program before the end of the year.
The last boxing program held was early this year at Nadi's Prince Charles Park and hosted by Naidiri Boxing Promotions.
BCF director Malakai Veisamasama said the lack of promotions was because promoters were not keen on hosting bouts. He said this was one of the consequences of the major clean-up the sport was going through from last year.
"As required by the promulgation, we had to do a major clean-up," Veisamasama said.
"As a result, promoters are staying away because the rules of engagement have changed and promoters don't go directly to boxers to get them to fight.
"Promoters come to us and we advise them but up until now, promoters have been reluctant to come forward."
He said the clean-up was for the betterment of the boxers.
"The clean-up was for all major stakeholders of the sport, especially the boxers.
"For example, in the past, boxers were paid around $30-$50 per round in a promotion but if you look at the preparations, the boxers have to pay for a trainer, sparring partner, diet program, food and even a corner man.
"Then after they pay these people the boxers are left with peanuts for themselves.
"But now, for example, boxers will get paid a minimum of $100 per fight and it would go higher depending on the experience and record of the boxers."
Veisamasama said a promoter was keen on staging a fight to be staged in December.
