6 January Harold Dade w pts 15 Manuel Ortiz, Civic Auditorium, San Francisco, California, USA - WORLD. Referee: Billy Burke. Scorecards: 87½-77½, 86-69, 86½-78½. Prior to the fight, Dade (117¾) was not even rated in the The Ring magazine’s top 100, having had just 20 contests as a featherweight against no one of any note, but shook the boxing world as a 10-1 underdog when winning the title by a unanimous decision. After losing eight pounds in two weeks, Ortiz (118) was but a shadow of his former self. Tired and worn out, especially in the latter rounds, Ortiz was outpaced and outpunched by the speedy two-handed box fighter who had been instructed to set a fast pace from the off.
