1959-06-12 [[Carlos Ortiz]] w rtd 2 (12) [[Kenny Lane]], Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - NBA/NY. Referee: Harry Kessler. With both men getting away fast, Ortiz (139¼) matching the southpaw jabs of Lane (140), there were a number of lively exchanges and it looked as though the fans were in for a treat. However, early in the second round, Ortiz dropped Lane for ‘four’ with a left-right combination and near the end of the session their heads came together, leaving the latter with a badly gashed right eye. It was clear that Lane could not continue with such a deep wound that would ultimately require ten stitches, and during the interval the fight was called off. Although Ortiz was also carrying a slight cut on his right eye, having been deemed fit to continue, he was announced the winner.
