ANOTHER club has joined amateur boxing and will feature in tonight's competition at the Fiji Sports Council National Fitness Centre.

Bulavou, made up of former Police Boxing Club members, is a product of a Youth Outreach by the Fiji Police Force.

The boxers are non commissioned officers but were given a platform to hone their individual talents and so they chose boxing.

Amateur Boxing interim committee chairman, Major Samisoni Inia Kafoa said it was good news to them ahead of selection for the training squad for next year's Pacific Games to be held in Papua New Guinea.

"We are one year away from the Pacific Games and I believe that the boxers that take advantage of the Saturday night fights, will have a better platform to prepare," he said.

"Boxers must realise that only competition perfects ones skills.

"You can train for one year, but if you don't get any competition, you are not helping your career.

"My advice to the boxers is to make use of the Saturday night competitions if you are aiming the Pacific Games next year."

Competition starts at 7pm tonight.
