1994-08-20 [[Vuyani Bungu]] w pts 12 [[Kennedy McKinney]], Carousel Casino Resort, Temba, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-112, 117-111. Fighting out of a crouch that confused McKinney (122), the superbly conditioned challenger was soon at work on the inside, having negated McKinney’s best weapon - the jab. Although McKinney tried desperately to pick it up, by the sixth his right eye was badly swollen and Bungu (122) was in charge, scoring well with hooks and overarm rights. Despite McKinney rallying in the 11th it was not enough.
