And rightly so!
Careful young one. People also say Germans are cold, calculated and ruthless. And I know your name.

Was curious if it was Monzon and Bonavena sparring(?) Is this clip about 12 min long from about 1968? Could it have been Bonavena and Peralta?

In fact, while obviously Monzon's chin is obviously unproven at the Light heavyweight limit, I would feel every confidence in predicting Monzon to beat Foster if his chin holds up.
Foster didn't just stop his foes. He'd land that left hand and they went down like they were dead. Monzon never faced a puncher like him. At sometime over the course of 15 rounds, Foster would land. Then the real problem for Monzon would be the follow-up.

Bonavena was no doubt sparring with a fighter with a superficial resemblance to Monzon...I've seen the vid in question "whilst" perusing the internet. Monzon would never spar with a heavyweight because that would make for a far too much of a strenuous, pointlessly energy wasting gym war, which he pointedly stated he didn't believe in indulging. Sparring was, for him, just for "working on certain things" and not for anything else. He thought, according to interviews, that a big mistake many fighters made, especially American fighters, was to leave too much of themselves behind in pointless, energy wasting and debilitating gym wars.

On a vid dedicated to Oscar Bonavena there was a segment of him sparring with some tall dude with longish black hair..it wasn't Monzon.
