1973-03-26 : Bennie Briscoe 159 lbs beat Art Hernandez 160 lbs by TKO at 1:19 in round 3 of 12

  • Location: Spectrum, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
  • Referee: Pete Tomasco

"Bennie Briscoe nearly embalmed highly-rated Nebraskan Art Hernandez, winning via a TKO at 1:19 of the 3rd frame. Briscoe swarmed all over Hernandez from the opening bell and dropped him in the 2nd round with a smashing right to the nose. Hernandez survived to the end of that round - but not much longer. At the start of the 3rd, Briscoe waded into him with a flurry of lefts and rights depositing Hernandez on the canvas again. The referee then stepped in and stopped it." -International Boxing, August 1973 issue
