Bully "The Bulldozer" Muravha is a day dreamer, says Stephen Castle, reacting to Muravha's bold prediction that he will knock the hell out of him when they square off on Saturday night.

"He could not do that in my first fight, but if he believes he can knock me out, then good luck for him," said Castle adding that even Robbie Lombard promised to do that on April 1.

Lombard was touted as being the next Gerrie Coetzee but proved anything but.

The Castle-Lombard fight took place at Emperors Palace.

In that tournament, Muravha punished Basil Ray who was rescued from destruction in the third round.

That was Muravha's first short-route win in three victories. He also has four defeats, all by stoppages.

Castle and Muravha shared spoils in their first clash, a bloody four-rounder on April 2 last year.

Their grudge match on Saturday night will top Rainbow Promotion's six-bout box-and-dine programme that will be presented by award winning promoter Pat Molefe at Unisa Conference Hall in Ormonde, south of Johannesburg.

Meanwhile Godfrey 'The Punisher" Nzimande returns against Patrick Masango in the junior lightweight division over six rounds.

Nzimande last fought when he lost the South African junior lightweight belt to Jasper Seroka last October.

A fight which could steal the thunder is another rematch between Kgotla "Bang Bang" Baeti and Anthony "Blue Jaguar" Tshehla.

Their first fight in September 2007 ended after an accidental clash of heads in the first round, that left Baeti with a bad cut.

Doctors stopped the fight.

Other bouts: Featherweight (4 rounds): Mbulelo Transvaal v Molifi Matima; flyweight (4 rounds): Patson Monyale v S'Mangaliso Madonsela.

Action is scheduled to start at 7pm and there will also be a lucky draw with a prize worth R30000.
