After taking command in the first round in the second Ortiz (134¾) was knocked down by a right to the jaw, but was quickly back on his feet and the challenger was unable to follow up his advantage. In the third and fourth Ortiz, concentrating on the body, also worked on damage to Ramos’ left eye and by the end of the fourth the eye was virtually closed. At that point the referee came close to stopping the contest before allowing Ramos (134¾) out for the fifth. Charging out of his corner in an effort to turn the fight around, Ramos gave it everything but with the eye worsening the referee finally called a halt on the 1.45 mark. When the fight was stopped a riot broke out among the crowd and the WBC executive, in overruling the referee, ordered Ortiz to return to the ring immediately. Ortiz refused and two days later the WBC vacated the title and ordered a rematch. Meanwhile, the rest of the boxing world continued to recognise Ortiz as the champion and accepted the decision in his favour.
