Carlos Ortiz 138 lbs beat Duilio Loi 140 lbs by SD in round 15 of 15

"Carlos Ortiz fought the toughest fight of his career Wednesday night to win a split decision over Italy's Duilio Loi and retain his world junior welterweight boxing title. Loi, the rugged 31 year old European welterweight champion, won the cheers of the Cow Palace crowd in this nationally televised 140 pound championship fight that was close all the way. Ortiz jabbed and hooked his way to an early lead. But the experienced Italian, who had lost only once in 111 professioanl fights, began to get the range in the 3rd and 4th rounds. Despite the fast pace there were no knockdowns and no cuts, although both boxers showed slight puffing near the eyes." -Associated Press
