1997-06-14 [[Genaro Hernandez]] w pts 12 [[Anatoly Alexandrov]], The Alamodome, San Antonio, Texas, USA - WBC. Referee: Jerry McKenzie. Scorecards: 116-113, 116-113, 113-115. Making a sluggish start, the champion struggled to find any rhythm in his work until he began to score well with the jab and several heavy rights to the head in the fourth. It was still messy though, and in the latter rounds, Alexandrov (129¾), who was cut over the left eye in the seventh, began to work even harder on the inside. Despite being thrown to the canvas in the tenth, Hernandez (129¾) got back to his boxing, his cleaner work getting him the win.
