2005-09-10 Brian Viloria w co 1 Eric Ortiz, Staples Centre, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Raul Caiz Jr. Although both fighters spent the first one-and-a-half minutes sizing each other up, once Viloria (108) hurt the champion with a solid left jab the contest quickly went up a gear. With Ortiz (108), being stung by almost every punch Viloria threw and refusing to back off, the pair went toe to toe before a tremendous right hand to the head put the former down. Despite being badly shaken, Ortiz beat the count before collapsing to the deck for the second time and being rescued by the referee with just one second of the round remaining.
