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), blood flowing from a severe head wound into his eyes, in no position to continue and the referee no alternative other than to terminate the contest. In what was the shortest fight in the division’s history, a return match between Hernandez (130) and Perez was called for and granted.
