PROMOTER Adbul Khan is disappointed that the Boxing Commission of Fiji has failed to stage a boxing program for a while.
He says the sport is dying out with the new rules the commission has put into place.
Khan, who is the promoter of the Wild West Boxing Promotions, reacted to a statement by the commission that no promoter has shown interest in promoting fights.
"We want to promote fights but it is the commission that is making it difficult for us to do so," Khan said.
"The sport is definitely dying and ever since the commission came in, everything started getting difficult for us."
Commission director Malakai Veisamasama said the promoters must adhere to the conditions set by the commissioner.
"This is a new era and we want the promoters to pay the boxers well," Veisamasama said.
"In the past boxers were paid $30 to $40 per round, we want to change all this and promoters have to live up to that standard."
Khan has called on the commission to discuss the future of boxing with the promoters.
"We want the media to sit with the commission and the promoters so we can discuss the future of boxing.
"The commission cannot run boxing its own way, they have to agree with us because it is us who have the money to run the promotions.
"They are killing the sport if they do not want to work with us."
Last week, the commission revealed it would host a program at the end of the year.
