THE ground-breaking two-day boxing convention, dubbed "Towards a knockout tomorrow", achieved most of its aspects, said Sports Minister Makhenkesi Stofile.
Throngs of licensees from around the country gathered at St George Hotel near Pretoria throughout the rainy weekend.
Some had high hopes that Stofile would disband the current board of Boxing South Africa (BSA) and appoint an interim structure while others were just happy to be given a hearing by Stofile.
Stofile cannot dissolve the board even if he wants to because laws that govern South Africa prevent him from doing so.
But Stofile wielded a whip over the board, which has been criticised heavily in Parliament corridors and in public areas for failing dismally to steer this sinking ship (BSA) out of financial quagmire.
The general feeling is that acting Chief Executive Loyiso Mtya should be commended for keeping the fires burning although he made some blunders in the process. "We cannot tolerate weak leadership and bad governance," warned Stofile.
"It is my considered view that boxing needs a fresh start. A complete overhaul of what we have been doing for the last three years or so."
The current board comprises chairperson Peter Ngatane, Archie Jonas, Sakhiwo Sodo and Claude Bassuday.
Their term officially ends in May 2011. For now they are still in charge and Mtya continues acting a chief.
Stofile commended all boxers who represented South Africa well in their international fights, particularly those who won world titles in their respective divisions.
