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 and it was 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.
