A THREE-day tournament will kick off the boxing calendar for the year from January 20 to 22.

Initially, only the Uptown Boxing Stable and USP Boxing Club were supposed to fight last week but organisers had to postpone the amateur program because other clubs has shown interest in participating.

Boxing Commission of Fiji (BCF) director Malakai Veisamasama said the tournament would be staged at the Fiji Sports Council Fitness Centre in Suva.

"Teams from Uptown Boxing Stable, USP, Nadawa, Delainavesi, Kinoya, Pita Tabuarua's Qelekuro Club, and Napoleon Taumoepeau's club are part of the amateur program," he said.

"Also some rural clubs stemming from outreach programs will also be part of the event."

Major Samisoni Kafoa, who is also a director of the BCF said, clubs that have been revived and rural clubs that have been part of the initiative of Fiji Sports Commission outreach programs will feature in the bouts.

"The first phase of the Fiji Sports Commission-funded outreach included clinics in the rural Macuata, Namosi, Naitasiri and Tailevu areas and the interest from the people has been overwhelming," he said.
