1960-06-15 Carlos Ortiz w pts 15 Duilio Loi, Cow Palace, San Francisco, California, USA - NBA. Referee: Vern Bybee. Scorecards: 145-143, 148-146, 143-145. Keeping the fight at long range with accurate left jabs, while Loi (140) preferred to bob and weave the champion found his opponent difficult to tag with big shots due to his crouching style. While the upright Ortiz (137½) looked to land with straight punches, Loi would hook and uppercut to head and body and at times the action was fast and furious as both men tried to take control. There were no knockdowns recorded, although Ortiz slipped over twice. The contest slowed appreciably in the latter stages and after Loi took a hard right to the body in the penultimate session he had little left, leaving Ortiz to make sure of the decision in his favour.
