1990-08-25 Manning Galloway w pts 12 Nika Khumalo, Youth Centre, Lewiston, Maine, USA - WBO. Referee: Roberto Ramirez. Scorecards: 115-112, 115-112, 115-112. Although the crude challenger made the fight he did not land enough scoring blows to get himself in front, while the southpaw Galloway (147) often frustrated him with his defensive capabilities and made for a difficult target. Finally, in the eighth, Khumalo (145½) hurt Galloway with a left hook-right cross and the force of the blow put him down for ‘three’. Khumalo also landed well in the ninth and 12th, but was never able to put enough punches together to swing things around and Galloway eased his way to a relatively lackadaisical points win.
