1957-06-15 Raton Macias w rsc 11 (15) Dommy Ursua, Cow Palace, San Francisco, California, USA - NBA. Referee: Jack Downey. On the deck for 'seven' in the first round, Macias (118) somehow lasted out the session to come back strongly, taking the offensive away from his challenger and going on to win at 2.02 of the 11th. Ursua (116½) had performed commendably, but when reeling and bleeding from the barrage of punches coming his way the referee eventually jumped in to rescue him.
