1943-04-28 Manuel Ortiz w co 6 (15) Lupe Cordoza, Will Rogers’ Coliseum, Fort Worth, Texas, USA - NY/NBA. Referee: Sully Montgomery. Displaying more class and ability than the locals had witnessed in living memory, Ortiz (118) brushed the sad and sorry Cordoza (117) aside after getting on top right from the start. A fighting champion, Ortiz exhibited a classy left hand before a hard right to the body knocked all the stuffing out of Cordoza, who was counted out after 1.07 of the sixth.
