1996-08-20 Vuyani Bungu w pts 12 Jesus Salud, Carousel Hotel and Casino, Hammanskraal, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Scorecards: 117-111, 118-109, 118-110. Although the scorecards showed a clear win for the champion, Salud (121), setting a terrific pace, certainly gave him a run for his money and much of the time matched his rival punch for punch. It began with Salud making the fight and Bungu (121½), who was cut over the left eye in the second round, showing off his counter-punching abilities. With Salud in front at the halfway stage it had been unrelenting, but after Bungu had a big round in the ninth he began to score more freely with solid combination punches to gain the upper hand.
