Carlos Ortiz 135 lbs beat Ismael Laguna 135 lbs by UD in round 15 of 15

"Carlos Ortiz had a slightly puffy eye cocked toward bigger and better things after solidly trouncing Ismael Laguna in 15 rounds Wednesday night at Shea Stadium. The 30 year old Ortiz started and finished strongly, rocking the 24 year old Laguna repeatedly with a solid right hand. In the middle rounds, he let up a bit and the swift, flashy Panamanian swarmed to the attack. But time and again Ortiz punished him, rocking him in the 2nd, 4th, 8th, 10th and 11th rounds with right hands. There were no knockdowns. Ortiz suffered nicks at the corner of both eyes, but they didn't bother him." -Associated Press
