1944-09-12 [[Manuel Ortiz]] w rsc 4 (12) [[Luis Castillo]], Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California, USA - WORLD. Referee: Mushy Callahan. A cracking contest while it lasted, Castillo (118) was no respecter of reputations and stormed into Ortiz (118) from the opening bell with every intention of finishing it there and then. Following plenty of give-and-take action, the third round saw the champion picking his punches better, especially with the uppercut, and in the fourth a sizzling right hook opened up a dreadful cut on Castillo’s left eye which was so bad that at 2.30 of the round the referee had brought the contest to a close.
