THE ring which will be used for the three-day amateur boxing program later this month will have a new look and feel.

This transpired after workers of the Fiji Sports Council, USP Boxing Club trainer Tuiloloma and his friends were busy renovating an old ring.

Major Samisoni Kafoa, a director of the Boxing Commission of Fiji, is the interim chairman of the amateur body and he said the ring should be completed by the end of this week.

He said they had been using an old ring for a long time now and it was in dire need of a makeover.

"The final touch up to the renovations of the competition ring is being completed as we speak," Kafoa said.

"Initially we had anticipated, the repairs to be a lot quicker but I want to make sure everything is in place."

The repairs to the ring, the equipment and competition costs are all funded by the Fiji National Sports Commission.

"I would like to sincerely thank the Fiji Sports Commission for the financial assistance and support to help BCF achieve its plans."

BCF director Malakai Veisamasama also applauded the Fiji Sports Commission for its support.

"The funding will surely make a massive difference to our efforts in reviving amateur boxing in Fiji," he said.
