2005-09-10 Brian Viloria w co 1 Erick Ortiz, Staples Centre, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Raul Caiz (jnr). Although both fighters spent the first one and a half minutes sizing each other up, once Viloria (108) hurt the champion with a solid left jab the contest quickly went up a gear. With Ortiz (108), being stung by almost every punch Viloria threw and refusing to back off the pair went toe-to-toe before a tremendous right hand to the head put the latter down. Despite being badly shaken, Ortiz beat the count before collapsing to the deck for the second time and being rescued by the referee with just one second of the round remaining.
