Although being credited with ten of the 15 rounds when winning the unanimous decision, it was anything but a walk in the park for Ortiz (118), who just could not put the challenger down. In fact, Robleto (117) forced the contest with Ortiz being content to counter until being cut over the eyes in the eighth. Fearing he might lose his title, Ortiz picked up the pace, but it was only in the final couple of rounds that Robleto was totally subdued.
