THE Boxing Commission of Fiji eagerly awaits the confirmation of their new coach.

Commission director Malakai Veisamasama has revealed a Cuban would take up the post and said the sport desperately needed a coach.

He said the coach would help re-build the sport and take it to greater heights.

"Unlike the other sporting bodies applying for overseas coaches, we desperately need his (coach) expertise to assist in the actual rebuilding of the sport," Veisamasama said.

"The coach will obviously have the exposer, the experience, the knowledge and everything else, to help us in the rebuilding process for amateur boxing in totality."

Veisamasama said a lot had changed since the Commission came into power and they were now headed in the right direction.

"Amateur Boxing was in bad shape when BCF took over," Veisamasama said.
