SATURDAY night's WBO Interim All Africa welterweight championship fight between Pius "Mr Hercules" Dipheko and Sam "K9" Malinga has been dubbed "The Collision" by promoter Pat Molefe.
This award-winning promoter, who operates under the banner of Rainbow Promotions, said he chose that name because the two combatants were like bull terriers.
Dipheko is from Kagiso on the West Rand while Malinga is from Newcastle in KwaZulu-Natal, but is based in Gauteng under esteemed mentor Nick Durandt.
This fight will take place at Wembley Arena.
"Bull terriers always tear each other to shreds when they fight and that could happen on Saturday," Molefe said yesterday.
This writer begs to differ with Molefe because the two combatants have contrasting styles of fighting.
Dipheko boasts natural boxing skills but prefers to be stimulated before he can get going. Malinga, on the other hand, wastes no time in taking on his opponent from the gong.
He enjoys wars but will have to cut the corners in order to trap Dipheko, who is a sleek mover.
Malinga's skills have deteriorated but he remains a dangerous boxer.
Close fighting is his game and that is where he punishes his opponents.
Andrew Smale, the representative of the WBO in Africa, will be fight supervisor.
Meanwhile, Bully "The Bulldozer" Muravha and Wiseman Dlomo will top Molefe's bill in a heavyweight bout over six rounds.
Molefe said this fight was the title eliminator. The winner will earn the right to challenge fight-starved SA champion Osborne "Big Daddy" Machimana.
There will be four more contests. Entrance is R30 and the action begins at 7.30pm.
