Bepi might have been Italia's best but he was worse than Ronald Stander .

Italian Boxing News (translated)

December 1, 1971

Giuseppe 'Bepi' Ros will take on American Mac Foster in Zurich, Switzerland on
December 26, 1971.

The Cliff of the Piave is 30-7-0 with 19 Knock-outs. Ros has a #24 World Ranking,
and is a 4-1 underdog for his bout with the American.

Ros and Foster will be the highlight undercard bout, for the Muhammad Ali and
Jurgen Blin match.

Bepi, the 3-time Italian Heavyweight Champion will be facing the
#6 World Ranked Heavyweight. Foster, 27-1-0 with 27 Knock-outs is
regarded as one of the heaviest punchers in boxing today.

Ros, now 29 years-old, will begin hard training for this bout immediately.
He has been criticized for his conditioning in recent years, and did not
perform well when losing a decision to Dante Cane several months ago.

Bepi who has won 12 of his last 14 bouts, is still regarded as one of Europe's
Top Heavyweights.

It has been mentioned, that the winner of the Ros - Foster fight will be offered
a bout versus Muhammad Ali for the spring of 1972.

Jack,,

'Mediumweight' was considered 185 lbs. as per the Italian Boxing writers.

Piero Tomasoni was too big for Light-Heavyweight, and
did not pack enough power for Heavyweight.

That is why he was listed as the top 'Mediumweight' fighter.

I don't suppose you have any of these fights, and if you do, if it's possible to upload them to Youtube?
