1996-04-15 Vuyani Bungu w rsc 2 Pablo Osuna, Carousel Casino Carpark, Hammanskraal, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Starting confidently the southpaw challenger looked to jab, but once Bungu (121½) found his range, countering with lefts and rights to the head, his rival was in trouble before being put down heavily towards the end of the first round. Somehow Osuna (121¼) made it to the bell, but coming out for the second session he was dropped by a right to the jaw almost immediately. Again he got up, but after Bungu tore in to put him down for the third time, a left hook doing the damage, the referee had seen enough and called it off on the 39 second mark.
