1996-01-23 [[Vuyani Bungu]] w pts 12 [[Johnny Lewus]], Grand Casino, Biloxi, Mississippi, USA - IBF. Referee: Fred Steinweinder. Scorecards: 118-111, 118-112, 120-108. Starting aggressively but having little power, the smaller Lewus (122) was soon being slowed down by the champion’s jab and belted by lefts and rights to head and body. He proved to be a tough customer though. Put down in the fourth round from a palpably low blow, after being given time out he tore back into the fray and it was not until the latter rounds when he tired that Bungu (122) really began to set about him. The final session saw Bungu hit Lewus with every punch in the book before the game American made it to the final bell to loud applause.
