Default Re: Carlos Ortiz interviews

Early Carlos Ortiz,

Turned professional in February 1955, as an 18 1/2 year-old.

Was 'first' managed by Ed Ferguson

Later became 'self-managed' in 1959, after getting disgruntled without making
any decent money.

By February 1961, after a 7 year-run, the 25 1/2 year-old, and #1 Lightweight
with a record of 35-4-0 (13 KO') gets a World Lightweight Championship bout,
with Joe Brown, only after having a 'closed door meeting' with Joe Brown's Manager -
Lou Viscusi.

Two-months later,,,,,,, 'Shazam'

Ahhhhh,,,,,,,,,,The Good Old Days.
