1991-12-14 [[Manning Galloway]] w pts 12 [[Nika Khumalo]], Green Point Stadium, Cape Town, South Africa - WBO. Referee: Al Munoz. Scorecards: 115-113, 116-113, 112-115. Instead of keeping the southpaw champion under constant pressure, Khumalo (145¾) went looking to land single shots and in doing so threw away the opportunity to win the title. Even when he dropped Galloway (147) in the eighth after turning southpaw, Khumalo never pressed home his advantage, and he continually struggled to get past the champion’s reach despite hurting his man again in the ninth. There was never much between them and had Khumalo applied the expected push the title would surely have changed hands.
