1997-11-20 [[Genaro Hernandez]] w pts 12 [[Carlos Hernandez]], Grand Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Dave Nelson. Scorecards: 120-107, 119-108, 119-108. In a battle of namesakes, Carlos Hernandez (129½) found that giving away nearly eight inches in reach was an impossible task and it was only the champion’s fragile right hand which stopped this from being an inside-the-distance win for him. Round after round the stumpy challenger came chugging in only to be repelled by a strong left jab, but he failed to be discouraged, and often made Genaro Hernandez (128½) fight hard on occasion. It was all about the left hand for Genaro Hernandez, but it was enough.
