One of the world's most beautiful and most explosive professional women boxers, Laila Ali, arrives at OR Tambo International Airport on Sunday afternoon.

She will be hosted by Golden Gloves boxing promotions, who will promote her rematch with Gwendolyn O'Neill at Emperors Palace on February 3.

Promoter Rodney Berman said her arrival will be a defining event in South African boxing: "Ten years back this would have been considered impossible."

Ali's defence of her WBC and Women's International Boxing Association (WIBA) super middleweight belts will top Berman's programme. The undefeated Ali, who boasts 23 wins (20 KOs), is fresh from a fourth-round knockout of Shelley Burton on November 11 last year.

O'Neill, from Guyana, wants to avenge her third-round knockout defeat against Ali, who is nicknamed "She Bee Stinging", on September 24 2004. It is not clear when O'Neill will arrive here.

Meanwhile, publicist Terry Pettifer said it's all systems go for Golden Gloves' box-and-dine tournament scheduled to take place at Emperors Palace on January 27.

He said the proceeds will be distributed among four former legendary local ring greats Levi Madi, Anthony Morodi, Enoch Nhlapo and Simon Skosana, and retired promoter Joe Gumede.

Butterfly Kidz, an organisation that assists handicapped people, will also benefit.
