2003-11-08 Ronald Wright w pts 12 Angel Hernandez, Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - IBF. Referee: Tony Weeks. Scorecards: 119-109, 118-110, 118-111. Taking a few rounds to find his rhythm, although the champion eventually got the southpaw jab working he still spent too much time at close quarters with the battle-hardened Hernandez (154), who relished the opportunity given him. Going forward swinging in the fifth, as Wright (154) tried to switch Hernandez had his best session to date, but unable to maintain any momentum he was soon back on the receiving end. Cut on the right eye in the seventh, Hernandez’s chances were further weakened when he was nailed by several solid left hands as Wright looked for a finish. The final five sessions saw Wright well in control without having to be anywhere near his best.
