1990-03-10 [[Welcome Ncita]] w pts 12 [[Fabrice Benichou]], Hilton Hotel, Tel Aviv, Israel - IBF. Referee: Al Rothenburg. Scorecards: 117-113, 116-110, 115-114. Proving far too speedy for the ungainly champion, Ncita (122) worked well on the outside, using his left lead to score points, while keeping his rival off balance and taking advantage with quick bursts of action before scampering back to the outside track. The pattern of the fight rarely changed as Benichou (122) was picked off time and again and unable to change things however hard he tried he was well beaten, despite one judge having it remarkably close.
