1995-04-29 [[Vuyani Bungu]] w pts 12 [[Victor Llerena]], FNB Stadium, Johannesburg, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Clement Martin. Scorecards: 118-108, 120-105, 117-111. In what turned out to be yet another one-sided contest for Bungu (122), the champion, bobbing and weaving, stayed close to Llerena (121½) who came into the fight with a reputation of being a dangerous puncher. The tactic was to limit the amount of space Llerena had with which to get his heavy shots off and it worked. With Bungu picking his punches throughout, Llerena, who had three points deducted for low blows, often threw wild overarm punches that were either blocked or hit thin air, and as the fight neared its conclusion his aggression began to peter out in resignation of defeat.
