In 60-bouts, supposedly was never floored.
Only stoppage, versus Mac Foster in 1971 in Zurich, Switzerland.
Had Foster rocking and rollling in round 3 and was winning the fight
until eating a Mac left hook in round 6.
Was eventually stopped in Round 8 while on his feet.
That bout was on the undercard of the Muhammad Ali vs. Jurgen Blin fight.

If 'Bepi' had won that fight over Mac Foster, he would have gotten a Title Shot versus Joe Frazier.
Any good videos on him?

Nothing is accessible through the internet.
