Boxing SA chairman Peter Ngatane has confirmed that although there was a letter from chief operations officer Cindy Nkomo cancelling a tournament at weekend, he instructed that it go ahead.
Promoter Ayanda Matiti's Xaba Promotions tournament in East London on Friday night had initially been called off by Nkomo because purse money had not been deposited with the BSA. Only 10% of the total purse money had been paid.
Nkomo had no request from Matiti to reinstate the tournament after it was cancelled.
Nkomo's mandate is to ensure that if no purse monies have been deposited, a tournament cannot go ahead.
