THE Western Boxing and Wrestling Association is hopeful of staging its first professional program in March.

The meeting for the newly established body was held at the Lautoka City Council Chambers on Wednesday where its constitution was finalised. Boxing Commission of Fiji executives Major Samisoni Kafoa and Usman Ali attended the meeting.

Western Boxing and Wrestling Association secretary Isireli Draunidalo said they recorded a good turnout.

Draunidalo said the next move would be to register the association.

"We will fall under the Boxing Commission of Fiji banner," Draunidalo said.

"The executives of the parent body are happy with the progress that we have made so far.

"There is great support for the initiative.

"Once we are registered then we will get the clubs to register with us. We hope to launch our amateur program first. The first professional program is most likely to be held in March."

Draunidalo said they needed to set up a database to monitor the number of boxers in both the amateur and professional categories.
