Body admits mistake

THE Boxing Commission of Fiji (BCF) has apologised to boxer Katerina Singh and fans of the sport.

This comes as Singh's victory over Haifa Work in a bout last weekend was not recognised by Box Rec.

Benjamin Thomas Watt, a BoxRec official stated earlier that the minimum standard for women's boxing was four rounds and two minutes each round.

Last weekend's bout was three rounds and two minutes each round which was not recognised by Box Rec thus costing a victory record for Singh.

A post on the official BCF page on Facebook stated that the commission admitted the error and looked towards a positive future.

"The BCF has acknowledged this grave error and even sent an apology to Katerina Singh. We also wish to apologise to boxing clubs and fans.

"Women boxing is still new to Fiji and BCF never consulted our overseas counterparts on how to handle women boxing or they advise us on how we do things until we send them the records of last week's fight.

"We will ensure future promotions will have 4 x 3 for women."

Singh said she had accepted the decision and now looked forward to more promotions and fights in the future.
