Boxing referees and judges to attend refresher course

REFEREES and judges that will feature in this weekend's boxing promotion in Nadi will be given a refresher course from a New Zealand-based official.

Boxing Commission of Fiji director Malakai Veisamasama confirmed New Zealand Boxing Federation official Faiyaz Khan will conduct the clinic after the weigh-in on Friday in Nadi.

Khan will also be a referee and judge during Saturday's Naidiri Boxing Promotions event at Nadi's Prince Charles Park.

Lautoka's Richard Smith, Joeli Sauqaqa, Nadi's Fatu Tuimanono and Suva's Jeremaiah Ledua will be other referees at the event.

"The last program in the country was 14 months ago and so we realise there would be a few rusty ends," Veisamasama said.

"We want to improve our standard of officiating and Faiyaz is an active referee and judge in New Zealand who knows the rules very well."

He also invited other referees and judges from around the country attend to the refresher course.

"We want to invite those referees and judges who want to be part of the course and also managers and trainers as well so they are well aware of the rules.

"The course is free and we would like to get as many people involved as possible."

Veisamasama said boxers are also invited to sit in during the course.
