1991-09-28 Welcome Ncita w pts 12 Bebis Rojas, The Superbowl, Sun City, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Rudy Battle. Scorecards: 115-113, 115-113, 109-119. In a rematch which was fast and furious, the challenger made a reasonable start to move in front after five rounds before Ncita (122) started to vary his attacks and began to outbox his rival. While Rojas (122) continued to slug wildly, missing more than he landed, Ncita picked up points with flashing left hands to the face, and when he needed to he used hit-and-run tactics to avoid mixing it. The fight was not without incident and both were occasionally guilty of dirty tactics, Rojas using trips and low blows while Ncita butted. Rojas also scored what seemed to be a perfectly good knockdown in the second only for the referee to rule it a slip.
