1990-09-29 Welcome Ncita w co 8 Gerardo Lopez, Ice Palace, Aosta, Italy - IBF. Referee: Sam Williams. Taking command in the second round, Ncita (121) maintained his grip on his challenger right up until the finish, showing good hand speed and power as combinations ripped into the unfortunate Lopez (121). The end came after a tremendous overarm right that exploded on Lopez’s jaw sent him crashing to the canvas, where he was counted out five seconds before the end of the eighth.
