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.
