1997-08-16 [[Vuyani Bungu]] w pts 12 [[Enrique Jupiter]], Carousel Hotel and Casino, Hammanskraal, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Scorecards: 115-113, 116-113, 117-112. Having to call on all of his experience to hold off his tough challenger, Bungu (121¾) held on to his title by scores that failed to reflect how close he had been to defeat. There was doubt that Jupiter (121) posed real problems, especially with dangerous left hooks to the body, and after Bungu was cut over the left eye in the sixth the signs looked ominous. It was at that point that Bungu produced the better work and after a torrid ninth when he came under pressure from two-fisted attacks he took the last three rounds to make sure of victory.
