1966-06-20 [[Carlos Ortiz]] w rsc 12 (15) [[Johnny Bizzarro]], Civic Arena, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - WORLD. Referee: Buck McTiernan. Having chased Bizzarro (133¾) throughout the first 11 rounds without any success whatsoever, Ortiz (135) eventually caught up with his elusive challenger in the 12th when he finally ran out of steam. The fast-moving Bizzarro certainly set Ortiz many problems as he bobbed and weaved his way through the early sessions, but after opening up a cut over the champion’s right eye in the eighth he gave up on his tactical plan in a bid to work on the damage. This proved to be Bizzarro’s undoing when Ortiz finally got to grips with him in the 12th and a barrage of blows followed by a left hook to the body in the 12th, dropped the challenger for the mandatory ‘eight’ count. Back on his feet and standing with hands at his side, unable to defend himself, Bizzarro was rescued by the referee with 31 seconds of the session remaining.
