FOLLOWING the success of last week's amateur boxing bouts at the Naidiri Boxing Promotion, the officials of Amateur Boxing of Fiji has organised a special program tomorrow to keep the interest of boxers.

Major Samisoni Kafoa, the interim chairman of Amateur Boxing said they wanted to continue the momentum which was set at Prince Charles Park in Nadi.

"We will have a boxing program this Saturday," he said.

"Last week's event was a success, we saw a lot of talented boxers and we're eager to continue the sport.

"We want to make amateur boxing alive and it's here to stay."

Last Saturday, the Hill brothers of Winston and Jonathan edged the Sauqaqa brothers of Maikeli and Tevita in the 75kg and 85kg respectively.

The Hill brothers who are from the Warriors Club in Suva are expected to feature in today's program.

Kafoa has invited all interested boxers to the weigh-in at the National Fitness Centre today.

Meanwhile other boxers such as Akash Kumar and Tikiko Sigaviti displayed fine skills during last weekend's event.

The weigh-in is from 7am to 9am.
