1995-03-11 Hector Acero-Sanchez w pts 12 Julio Gervacio, Bally’s Park Place Hotel, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBC. Referee: Tony Perez. Scorecards: 118-110, 117-111, 115-113. Making his first defence, Acero-Sanchez (122) showed good technique and speed to offset the power of Gervacio (122), his combinations and excellent jabs ultimately being too much for the challenger to handle. Although Gervacio made a promising start, shaking Acero-Sanchez up in the fifth, while unable to repeat that feat he was always a competitive and dangerous handful.
