1993-04-26 Genaro Hernandez tdraw 1 Raul Perez, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBA. Referee: Lou Moret. Classified as a no-decision bout by the WBA (a technical draw for our purposes), a terrible clash of heads after just 28 seconds left Perez (129¾) with blood flowing from a severe head wound into his eyes. Following this, the referee had no alternative other than to terminate the contest. In what had been the shortest fight in the division’s history, a return match between Hernandez (130) and Perez was called for and granted.
