National welterweight champion Bongani Mwelase has promised to be like a wild dog that has become dangerous due to hunger when he takes on Anderson Clayton for the World Boxing Federation belt.
Such dogs eat anything they can sink their teeth into. At times they even prey on human beings.
"That is exactly what will happen to Anderson," warned Mwelase yesterday. I will eat him alive."
His fight with "The Pantera" will be presented by Free State promoter Blacky Seoe's Robs Boxing Promotions in Bloemfontein on September 12.
It will be the fearless Soweto fighter's second fight in Free State.
In May Mwelase, with his deceptive skeletal physique, left fight fans at the Kroonstad Military Base gaping in disbelief with his skill, speed and crippling power against Thabo Mashishi.
The challenger from Limpopo was rescued two minutes and 56 seconds into the first round.
That was Mwelase's first defence of the national welterweight belt.
Now the Australian-based WBF has afforded this intelligible Sowetan, who calls himself "Cyclones", an opportunity to fight for its belt.
Clayton, 29, from Sao Paulo, is the former WBC Latino junior middleweight and welterweight champion.
He has a scary knockout ratio of 24 from 28 wins, against six defeats.
"I am not threatened by his fight record," said Mwelase, who has set the boxing scene alight with both his loud mouth and fists of fury since he turned professional last year.
"This will be another knockout in my bucket. The WBF belt will be my perfect birthday present.
"I turn 25 on August 23," he said.
Mwelase has flattened 10 of his 11 opponents to date.
His skills are honed by former heavyweight contender Johnny du Plooy.
