1946-06-10 Manuel Ortiz w co 11 (15) Jackie Jurich, Civic Auditorium, San Francisco, California, USA - WORLD. Referee: Toby Irwin. Jurich (117¼) began well enough with excellent left-hand leads and footwork carrying him a long way, but he never looked like winning and was put down in the eighth before Ortiz (117½) battered him from pillar to post in the 11th prior to the finish. After knocking the challenger on to the lower rope for a short count, Ortiz caught up with the now stationary Jurich, whacking him with a wicked left hook to the body before chopping rights and lefts to the jaw dropped him writhing in agony to be counted out with just two seconds of the round remaining.
