Sport: Fijian boxers struggling for sponsorship

10:48 am on 10 May 2012

Fijian boxers are struggling to secure sponsorship, just three weeks out from the first leg of the inaugural Pacific Rim Boxing Championship.

Fijian boxers Johnny Singh and Junior Naliva are based in Nadi and Ba and both were affected by the recent floods.

Team manager, Abdul Khan, says trying to secure sponsorship has been difficult with all the businesses they've approached also affected by the flooding.

The Pacific Rim Boxing Championship was formed last year in Apia to provide much needed regional tournaments as part of reviving boxing in the Pacific.
