They had it all worked out for Hector -

An early 1978 WBA defense versus the Central American Super-Bantamweight Champion,
the 'light punching' Columbian, Nestor 'Baba' Jiminez.

Then the former WBA Bantamweight Champion Alfonso Zamora in the Spring of 1978.

Then, at age 18, the move up to 126 lbs.

The kid did have talent.
Very interesting. Did not know this about Carrasquilla. Very young.
