23 November Manuel Ortiz w pts 15 Benny Goldberg, Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California, USA - NY/NBA. Referee: Mushy Callahan. Scorecards: 91-73, 88-77, 91½-72½. Making his eighth title defence in 1943, Ortiz (117½) took time to get going, possibly because Goldberg (116½) was a counter-punching southpaw who knew his way around a ring at pace. However, in the sixth, the champion put his foot on the pedal and it was his fight from thereon, as he ripped in punches to head and body without being able to drop the tough Goldberg. Somehow, the challenger survived to lose the unanimous decision and despite taking some heavy wallops he would live to fight another day.
