1992-02-24 Genaro Hernandez w pts 12 Omar Catari, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Scorecards: 115-112, 116-112, 116-111. Making his first defence, Hernandez (126½) was forced to go all the way against the unheralded, stocky Catari (129½), who worked the body well and fought a rough, tough fight. Hernandez, who finished with cuts over both eyes, tried to stop the Argentinian early on, but gave up when unsuccessful and spent the last three rounds jabbing, moving and landing good overarm rights to make the scoreline more respectable.
