1997-11-15 Vuyani Bungu w pts 12 Arnel Barotillo, Carousel Hotel & Casino, Hammanskraal, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Scorecards: 117-111, 118-111, 120-108. The hard-hitting Barotillo (121¼) was dangerous in the opening rounds as he tried to rough up Bungu (122), but the champion was having none of it and was soon at work outboxing and outfighting his tough foe. Commanding the centre of the ring throughout, Bungu constantly hit the target, slipping in and out with rights and lefts to the head, and it was no surprise that Barotillo ended up with a cut right eye along with other noticeable face damage.
