"Gaspar Ortega, in a surprising late finish, won a split decision victory over bolo-punching Kid Gavilan in a scheduled 12 round welterweight elimination bout for the vacant title Tuesday night at Wrigley Field. The split decision stunned most of the ringside press who had Gavilan in front by a wide margin. Ortega's win evened the score with Gavilan. The 31 year old Cuban had decisioned Ortega on July 31 in Miami." -United Press
