1995-03-11 Hector Acero-Sanchez w pts 12 Julio Gervacio, Bally’s Park Place Hotel, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBC. Referee: Tony Perez. Scorecards: 118-110, 117-111, 115-113. Making his first defence, Acero-Sanchez (122) showed good technique and speed to offset the power of Gervacio (122), and his combinations and excellent jabs were ultimately too much for the challenger to handle. Although Gervacio made a promising start and shook Acero-Sanchez up in the fifth, while unable to repeat that feat he was always a competitive and dangerous handful.
