try this-

    remove_meta_box('categorydiv');
add_meta_box('categorydiv', "Categories", 'mycustom_category_meta_box', null, 'side', 'core', array( 'taxonomy' => 'category' ));
function mycustom_category_meta_box($post, $box) {
    $defaults = array('taxonomy' => 'category');
    if ( !isset($box['args']) || !is_array($box['args']) )
        $args = array();
    else
        $args = $box['args'];
    extract( wp_parse_args($args, $defaults), EXTR_SKIP );
    $tax = get_taxonomy($taxonomy);

    ?>
    <div id="taxonomy-<?php echo $taxonomy; ?>" class="categorydiv">
