Jamaine Ortiz got the credit he deserved for his work this time.

In his first fight since a debatable draw with Joseph Adorno nearly 10 rounds earlier, the unbeaten Ortiz defeated Nahir Albright by unanimous decision Friday night in their 10-round lightweight fight at Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando, Florida. Judges Brian Garry (98-92), Alex Levin (97-93) and Joseph Ware (97-93) appreciated the work of an accurate, active Ortiz and scored the 135-pound prospect the winner of their “ShoBox: The New Generation” main event.

The 25-year-old Ortiz, of Worcester, Massachusetts, improved to 15-0-1 (8 KOs) by winning his first 10-round bout.

The 26-year-old Albright (14-2, 7 KOs), of Sicklerville, New Jersey, was considered a formidable foe for Ortiz primarily because he beat Michael Dutchover by technical knockout following five one-sided rounds in his previous fight. Albright dropped Dutchover four times before a ringside physician halted their scheduled 10-rounder due to Dutchover’s cut September 14 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

Ortiz, probably aware he was ahead on the cards, stuck and moved throughout the 10th and final round. Albright pursued him, but he couldn’t catch Ortiz with the type of shot he needed to change the course of their fight.

Ortiz and Albright went at it on the inside for much of the final minute of the ninth round. Ortiz landed several hard body shots during that time frame, but an Albright right hand that moved Ortiz backward was the most noteworthy punch of those exchanges.

Albright blasted Ortiz with a right hand that connected with approximately 20 seconds to go in the eighth round. Ortiz landed three shots in combination while boxing inside with about 40 seconds remaining in the eighth round.

A stiff jab by Albright backed Ortiz into the ropes a little less than 30 seconds into the seventh round. Albright appeared to establish some momentum by then, as Ortiz essentially moved around the ring and took much of that round off.

Albright landed a right uppercut with just over 1:40 to go in the sixth round. Albright also landed a right hand that made Ortiz move away from him toward the end of the sixth round.

Ortiz was the more accurate, active fighter throughout a one-sided fifth round. Albright caught Ortiz with a right hand and moved out of Ortiz’s punching range with just over a minute to go in the fourth round.

A short, left hook by Ortiz landed barely a minute into the third round. Ortiz landed another left hook just before the midway mark of the third round.

A jab by Ortiz backed Albright into the ropes late in the third round, another round Ortiz clearly won.

Ortiz pressed the action again in the second round and forced Albright to tie him up several times. He landed the harder punches in that round and seemingly began building an early lead on the scorecards.

Ortiz was the aggressor throughout the first round and landed most of the effective shots in those opening three minutes. Albright did land a left hook with just under 10 seconds to go in the first round, though.
