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 and appeared unlucky not to get something out of the fight.
