2000-03-11 Naseem Hamed w co 4 Vuyani Bungu, Olympia, Kensington, London, England - WBO. Referee: Joe Cortez. Having been so disappointing in his last three contests, Hamed (126) at last got back to something approaching his normal self when making a successful defence against Bungu (125½), a former IBF champion. Controlling the action from the opening bell, Hamed opened up a cut over Bungu’s left eye in the third round and with the South African concentrating on defence alone it was no contest. The finish came after the challenger was dropped by a cracker of a straight left and was counted out at 1.38 of the fourth.
