1966-12-15 : Jerry Quarry 192 lbs beat Joey Orbillo 188 lbs by UD in round 10 of 10

"Jerry Quarry, who came prepared, fought beautifully. He set up Joey Orbillo with a nifty jab and sharp left hook. Then he landed telling blows with a right hand that jarred Orbillo time and again. Quarry did everything but knock out Orbillo in the 4th round. A right hand to the chin dropped the game soldier for a count of nine. Orbillo rose groggily and ran into another terrific right at the bell. The punch sent Orbillo sagging into the ropes and completely out as his handlers caught him and assisted him to his stool. Orbillo managed to rally in the 9th and won that round by a narrow margin. However, Quarry again started to land in the 10th and had Orbillo virtually out on his feet as the fight ended." - Pasadena Star-News
