1999-11-13 Sharmba Mitchell w pts 12 Elio Ortiz, Thomas & Mack Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Richard Steele. Scorecards: 114-112, 118-108, 119-109. Having dropped his challenger with a fast southpaw left after just 15 seconds, Mitchell (139½) must have thought he was in for an early night, but he was forced to go all the way and suffer a badly cut right eye in the sixth following a clash of heads. Ortiz (139½) eventually had a point deducted for illegal use of the head, in the eighth. Following the injury, Mitchell, careful to protect himself from further damage, allowed Ortiz back into the fight, but the latter was a long way behind on two of the cards and would have needed a knockout to win.
