I'd love to bet he first one to give you some insight Iran, but Genaro is a fighter I haven't seen much off. He did lose at 130lbs though, in a fairly competitive fight with Floyd Mayweather. That would be his last fight. Maybe this thread has inspired me to have a deeper look at Hernandez.

He was a good solid pro.A standup technician that did most things competently without having many standout attributes.A notch or two below an Esparragoza, say.

Out of his depth against bigger DLH and was notcieably slower and past his best by the time he lost to Floyd.Not that he would ever have won.

Strictly coincidence mate. Mexican fighters just seem to have all the attributes I most admire. Some people think I'm a closet Mexican lol.

People tend to cite Hernandez as one of PBF's most important victories so I'd love to hear what more people on the Classic Forum have to say about him.

You guys are much smarter.

I saw a lot of Genaro in the early 90's. These guys are selling him a bit short. He was a very well-rounded fighter. Tight defense, good jab, hard hooks, a bit of creativity at times. He wasn't a great KO guy but was still punishing. About a third of his fights were title fights. He defended somewhere around 12 times over two reigns (too lazy to look it up). His two losses were to the much younger and bigger de la Hoya and to the very much younger and bigger Mayweather when Genaro was used up. Had he the managerial guile of a Mayweather, he could have easily retired undefeated (though lighter in the wallet).

Good, solid titleholder who is mainly remembered (perhaps unfairly) for saying "No mas" against two legends-in-the-making. His biggest/best win was his decision victory over Azumah Nelson, who was nearing 40 years old but still a champion and considered dangerous.

He was generally considered worn out by the time Mayweather got to him and ready to be taken.

Oh yes, no mas all right. He had a horribly broken nose against Hoya which he had before even taking the fight, suffered against Mosely in sparring.

Vasquez is a quitter for what he did in the first Marquez fight, with the same injury, right?

Could he very well be one of the first of the stand up Mexican technicians?

I don't know, I never saw that fight.

I don't know why you bring up random irrelevant fights when another fight is being discussed, either.

Saddens me to read about Genaro. Spoke with him when i learned he had a rare neck and brain cancer. He recognized the battle he was in, but he was the same gentleman he's always been, and his only thoughts were for his wife and two young kids.

He's a credit to the game.
