1969-05-03 Nicolino Locche w pts 15 Carlos Hernandez, Luna Park Stadium, Buenos Aires, Argentina - WBA. Referee: Victor Avendano. Scorecards: 298-290, 298-297, 298-290. Over the first five rounds, the challenger looked to be in with a chance as he threw some pretty solid punches at Locche (139), but after the mini-storm subsided the latter took over, battering away with straight lefts and rights and scoring heavily on the inside. Although Hernandez (137) made another big charge, this time in the 12th, swinging wildly in a vain attempt to land a kayo, his efforts were negated and Loche gave it both barrels during the remaining three sessions, firing in solid lefts and rights despite having the fight already in the bag.
