4 April Manuel Ortiz w pts 15 Tony Olivera, Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California, USA - NY/NBA. Referee: Reg Gilmore. Scorecards: 86½-76½, 91-74, 91-77. Although starting slowly against the fast-moving Olivera (117½), the champion soon picked up the pace as he began to punch harder and more forcefully as the contest developed, while the tough Portuguese looked to keep him at bay with the jab. From the sixth round through to the finish Ortiz (117) concentrated on the body, but surprisingly Olivera survived the attacks to come back with punches of his own before going down on a unanimous decision.
