Foster likely hit harder than Moore, but his power wasn't as well applied. For instance, against bigger opponents, Foster wouldn't sit down on his punches because he needed to move. Against someone like the evasive Folley, he couldn't land his punches. Terrell clinched the life out of Foster. Ali was just plain tough.
