1960-09-01 Duilio Loi w pts 15 Carlos Ortiz, San Siro Stadium, Milan, Italy - NBA. Referee: Andre Esparraquera. Scorecards: 74-73, 74-73, 72-72. As per their first contest it was closely fought, but this time Loi (139½) had the edge over the champion, who was shaken up by a left to the jaw in the fourth and given no room to work. The early rounds had seen both men content to spar for openings before Loi became more effective on the inside and began to box his man off. With the tide beginning to turn in the ninth, when Ortiz (138½) was forced on the defensive by Loi he was blitzed by a hail of left and right hooks that had him rocking. Although Ortiz was still boxing brilliantly at times, especially in the 11th and 13th rounds, Loi was beginning to get on top as he put everything into his attacks, his work over the last two sessions giving him a deserved victory.
