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, when Carlos Hernandez (129½) found that giving away nearly eight inches in reach was an impossible task 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 failing to be discouraged he often made Genaro Hernandez (128½) fight hard on occasion. It was not enough though.
