1995-02-11 [[Alberto Jimenez]] w rsc 8 [[Jacob Matlala]], Carousel Hotel and Casino, Hammanskraal, South Africa - WBO. Referee: Lou Moret. That Matlala (110½), who had been on a drip just two weeks earlier after suffering from dehydration, turned up was a miracle, and even more surprising was the fact that he was not far behind Jimenez (110¼) at the finish. Neither man had been floored, but when the champion dropped to one knee in the eighth having moments earlier tried to retire on his stool the referee called the contest off, the finish being timed at 2.35.
