1995-09-26 Vuyani Bungu w pts 12 Laureano Ramirez, Carousel Casino, Hammanskraal, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Clement Martin. Scorecards: 117-111, 117-111, 118-111. Again, it was not a totally impressive performance from the champion who only fought in flurries and appeared out of sorts at times. After replacing Rafael Del Valle, who had to withdraw, the southpaw Ramirez (122) gave Bungu (121½) plenty of trouble while forcing him to fight on the outside, but lacked the power to do too much damage. However, the stronger Bungu, who appeared to be going through the motions at times when relying on looping lefts to the body and jabs to get him through, was the more aggressive of the two and showed the better skills to retain his title.
