2005-03-11 Eric Ortiz w rsc 7 Jose Antonio Aguirre, Arroyo Bullring, Mexico City, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Gelasio Perez. In a battle for the title vacated by Jorge Arce, Ortiz (106¼) was soon setting a fast pace, being the aggressor throughout against the former mini fly champion, Aguirre (105¾), who seemed befuddled at times. After suffering a cut left eye in the third round, for which Aguirre was deducted a point, Ortiz merely stepped up the pace and was soon all over his rival. The end came with three seconds of the seventh remaining when the referee intervened to save Aguirre, who had been stunned by a heavy right and was being battered by Ortiz in a corner without fighting back.
