1960-02-04 Carlos Ortiz w co 10 (15) Battling Torres, The Coliseum, Los Angeles, California, USA - NBA. Referee: Mushy Callahan. Tantalising the 18-year-old challenger with the left jab, Ortiz (137) proved what a good fighter he was, taking everything that came his way before opening up in the latter rounds with big punches of his own. Torres (138) put up a good fight, but showed his inexperience when trying to take Ortiz out with everything he threw and as he tired the signs became ominous. Cut over the left eye and battered by fierce rights to the head and hurtful body attacks, Torres was showing signs in the ninth that he wouldn’t be around much longer and in the tenth a barrage of lefts and rights saw him sink to the canvas to be counted out with just four seconds of the session remaining.
