1990-06-02 Welcome Ncita w rsc 7 Ramon Cruz, Regatta Club, Rome, Italy - IBF. Referee: Frank Cappuccino. Constantly moving and showing great footwork and hand-speed to match, Ncita (122) took his challenger to the cleaners with jabs and heavy straight rights finding the target with some regularity. By the fifth Cruz (121½) was completely outclassed, it being a surprise he lasted the round. Then, after being given a standing ‘eight’ count in the seventh, the referee brought matters to an end at 2.04 of the round with the brave Dominican taking terrific punishment.
