1998-05-16 Vuyani Bungu w pts 12 Ernesto Grey, Carousel Hotel & Casino, Hammanskraal, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Scorecards: 116-113, 116-113, 113-115. Contested at a fast pace, in the main it was the spirit and aggression of the challenger versus the counter-punching skills of Bungu (121¾). There was never much between them and in the last three rounds, with Bungu tiring, Grey (122) gave it everything, appearing unlucky not to get something out of the fight.
