THE Boxing Commission of Fiji was forced to reschedule it's amateur boxing program to today.

The three-day tournament was supposed to begin yesterday but was called off.

BCF director Malakai Veisamasama said the referees and judges for the competition didn't turn up.

"They decided not to turn up at the last minute so we will move the official competition to tomorrow (today) or Wednesday," he said.

"We will try to find referees and judges and then confirm the competition."

But boxers and the spectators at the Fiji Sports Council National Fitness Centre were not disappointed.

Veisamasama said they arranged for the boxers to engage in sparring matches in the ring.

"Sparring is a form of boxing too and we didn't want to disappoint those who turned up here today (yesterday).

"So we got the boxers to participate in sparring matches and it was still quite a good performance from them.

"We had four boxers from Lautoka, one from Pita Tabuarua's Qelekuro Club and the rest from the clubs around Suva."

He said fans who wanted to watch the program would have to pay only $2 to watch more than seven fights.
