Irvin Buhlalu has vowed to register the fifth defence of the SA lightweight belt against Khululekile Sibeko on Sunday and deliver it to his five-year-old son.

"He follows the sport and has been nagging me to buy the belt for him. I promised the young man that I will win it for him, so there is no way Sibeko can spoil the party," said Buhlalu.

Victory will see the KwaZulu- Natal fighter claim ownership of the Old Buck belt.

His must-win fight will be staged by promoter Mzimase Mnguni's Eyethu Boxing Promotions at the Orient Theatre in East London.

Buhlalu's skills are honed by trainer Vuyani Bungu at Mnguni's Eyethu gym in East London.

"I will pull out all the stops to keep the belt. In fact, I still have plans for it. Sibeko must just forget about ending my reign," she said.

Buhlalu, from Chesterville in Durban, won the title on July 15 2005. His last title defence was against Benedict Dlamini at Victoria Mxenge Hall in Durban in November last year.

Sibeko, from East London, will make a second attempt at the national belt. He was stopped in the seventh round in 2003 by former titleholder Mzonke Fana.
