Blast from the past: Bungu bashes to sixth title defence
Today in SA sports history: April 15
1996 — Vuyani Bungu scores one of the quickest stoppage wins of his career while making the sixth defence of his IBF junior-featherweight title. Fighting at the Carousel casino, north of Pretoria, Bungu saw off Colombian challenger Pablo Osuna in the second round. In his 13 title defences – a record for any SA world champion – Bungu stopped only two opponents, with the other being in his final defence in early 1999. Bungu was hardly a power puncher, with 19 stoppage victories in his 39 career wins.
