The two brawny cruiserweights, who exchanged some smack talk and thus heated the build-up, will headline Golden Gloves’ ‘Explosion’ box-and-dine event in what is shaping up to be an interesting contest.

Lerena (17-1; 9), formerly known as the ‘KO Kid’, ironically assured the Congolese that muscles wouldn’t win him the fight.

“Kalenga has been there and done it; he’s had his time,” said Lerena. “I’m more than confident.”

El Toro’s professional record is (23-3; 16).

Kalenga (29), who was said to have recently been involved in a mini-war sparring with Tommy Oosthuizen, was equal to his opponent’s confidence: “He must bring whatever he’s got…even then it won’t be enough.”

Fans can expect other explosive fights with talents such as Thulani Mbenge and Brandon Thysse included on the bout card.

Doors open at 7pm with action starting at 7.30pm. – @SabeloBoksburg
