ORGANISERS of the Saturday amateur boxing event are calling on boxers from the West to travel to Suva to engage in fights.

An amateur program will be held tomorrow at the Fiji Sports Council National Fitness Centre from 7pm.

Amateur Boxing interim chairman Major Samisoni Kafoa said they were eager to see Western boxers in the ring.

"We know there are boxers training in the Western Division who are looking for competition," he said.

"We are inviting all those interested amateur boxers from the West to attend the weigh-in on Saturday from 7am to 9am and then the event from 7pm."

Kafoa said it would be good to test the boxers from Suva against those from the West.

"Boxers here in Suva have been competing against themselves and it would be good to see them in action in the ring against those from the West.

"Boxers from the Western Division came when the Saturday amateur programs first started earlier this year, but then it has just been Suva boxers for the past two months."

Kafoa also urged boxing lovers who will be in Suva for the Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics Championships (Coca-Cola Games) to attend the event.

"People from all over the country will be in Suva for the biggest athletics event and there would be some boxing lovers among them.

"We would like to let them know that there will be an event this Saturday (tomorrow) at the National Fitness Centre."
