  • "Lightweight contender Carlos Ortiz of NY made a strong bid for a title shot tonight by winning a 10 round decision over southpaw Dave Charnley, champion of the British Isles, at Harringay Arena. Charnley tired in the later rounds because of the terrific pace set by the 22 year old Ortiz. Although Charnley has the reputation of a slugger, Ortiz appeared stronger and more explosive tonight. Ortiz' sharp left-rights to the head had Charnley bleeding from a small cut under his left eye in the 3rd round and from a gash on his right brow in the 5th. There was no doubt about the verdict. Referee Andy Smyth raised Ortiz' right hand at the finish." -United Press International

    • This was the final fight card staged at the fabled Harringay Arena, which was converted shortly after to a warehouse.
