1994-01-31 Genaro Hernandez w rsc 8 Jorge Ramirez, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Right from the start Hernandez (130) looked a class above his veteran challenger as he rammed in jabs and hooks to head and body and it was no surprise when Ramirez (130) began bleeding from a cut under the right eye in the second round. Although he was still trying to attack, by the fifth Ramirez’s efforts were constantly being negated and in the sixth another cut appeared on the right eye, which made life even more difficult. Still he kept trying, but by now he was getting a one-sided beating and after 2.35 of the eighth had elapsed the referee had seen enough and called time.
