The South Pacific Boxing Promotions today will make an official release today on their May 22 programme whether to go ahead or de­fer it.

This was confirmed yes­terday by SPBP promoter Freddy Chand.

“We’ll have to meet the Nadi Town Council and the Ministry of Health of­ficials before we release a statement tomorrow,” he said.

“It is important to secure the venue if we are going to move the programme to another date but all of that will be confirmed after our meetings.”

Chand said two boxers who were going to fight in the undercards have been advised to stay home since they live in the Kerebula settlement.

“All boxers have been ad­vised to follow all health protocols and continue on their own training. I know it’s hard but they must look after their health which is important.”

The main bout sees hard hitting homeboy Siliveni Nawai taking on Jese Ra­vudi.

Also appearing in the undercards are top boxers like Fijian heavyweight champion James Singh, Joseph Kwadjo and Nepote Dawadawa.
