1995-03-04 Vuyani Bungu w pts 12 Mohammad Nurhuda, Carousel Casino, Hammanskraal, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Clement Martin. Scorecards: 119-109, 119-109, 118-110. Although starting slowly, the champion eventually picked up the pace and scored heavily with combination punches as both men came together. By the sixth round, as Bungu (121½) varied his attacks from head to body and mixed up his jabs from the outside, it was obvious that the brave Nurhuda (122) would be lucky to last the distance. That he did with his left eye almost closed was testament to his vast reservoirs of courage.
