1993-12-04 [[Jacob Matlala]] w rtd 7 [[Luigi Camputaro]], The Superbowl, Sun City, South Africa - WBO. Referee: Rudy Battle. In what was his first defence, Matlala (110¾) proved what a good fighter he had become when completely outboxing the wild-swinging Camputaro (111¾). Both men were cut, due to accidental head clashes, but it did not stop the diminutive champion from getting inside to score heavily and it was no surprise when the Italian failed to answer the bell for the eighth, claiming a damaged right hand.
