1994-08-26 Hector Acero-Sanchez w pts 12 Tracy Harris Patterson, Bally’s Park Place Hotel, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBC. Referee: Ron Lipton. Scorecards: 114-113, 114-113, 112-115. Following a slow first round, the challenger opened up in the second and a sharp exchange dropped Patterson (122), who got up quickly before being hurt again. From then on there was nothing in it as Patterson tracked Acero-Sanchez (122), occasionally snapping the Dominican’s head back with right hands, but never being able to build on it, while Acero-Sanchez, moving cleverly and scoring with short punches, was right in the fight. At the final bell, with every round having been closely contested it could have gone either way.
