1992-04-18 Welcome Ncita w pts 12 Jesus Salud, Sports Palace, Treviglio, Italy - IBF. Referee: Joey Curtis. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-112, 115-113. Boxing from the fourth round with a swollen and partly closed eye, the champion used an accurate jab to set up the points while Salud (121) was not busy enough, often landing just one punch at a time. Although he rallied towards the end, throwing hooks and uppercuts, with Salud still failing to put Ncita (121) under too much pressure he was unable to make up the deficit.
