Description : Here we have a very rare original onsite poster from Caesars Palace Las Vegas, September 9th, 1995 for the WBO Lightweight title.

Hernandez, a former and future world champion from South Central Los Angeles (De La Hoya is from East Los Angeles), was seen as the first major test for De La Hoya. By 22, De La Hoya had picked up titles at 130 and 135 pounds but wasn't yet considered among the world's elite fighters.

Against Hernandez, De La Hoya showed little respect for his opponent (he had called him "Generic" instead of "Genaro" in prefight trash talk) and displayed new movement, hopping back and forth, slipping under punches. He landed a vicious right uppercut in the fourth. In the sixth, he bloodied Hernandez's nose and began finding opportunities to tee off. A left hook broke Hernandez's nose and ultimately caused the veteran to give up, for his first time, after Round 6 ended. De La Hoya dominated Hernandez in this lightweight title fight, outboxing a skilled boxer, making an undefeated champion quit.
