1998-05-16 [[Genaro Hernandez]] w pts 12 [[Carlos Gerena]], Fantasy Springs Casino, Indio, California, USA - WBC. Referee: James Jen-Kin. Scorecards: 117-111, 117-113, 116-113. Not at his best for this defence, Hernandez (129¼) made a disappointing start before mastering Gerena (129) as he slowed towards the end, especially with jabs and countering blows that picked up points. For the rugged Gerena, who concentrated on the body and was always in front of the champion, it would have to be another day but he certainly worked hard during the early and middle rounds and was still competitive right up until the final bell.
