In Foster's early championship years he would win. But toward the last part of Bob's career, Braxton might even TKO him like he did Saad Muh. in the first upset for the title.

Bob would decison Dwight, since I don't see him stopping him, but like Longhorn says, if it was near the end of his career, Braxton would probably win.

Foster hit a little bit harder than Spinks, probably, so if Spinks can discourage Braxton with the Spinks Jinx early, imagine what Foster could do to Braxton with that left hook.Foster would stop Braxton around the eighth round.

Stand and Trade with Dwight, and he could Fillet you, with his Dip-Slip-an-Rip on the inside, Jerry the Bull Martin found that out, However Bob does not need play dwights game, Bob could move well "Snake-bite" Dwight with that Up-Jab from a crouch, and not get too involved...until he decides to loose a few Bombs, in the Manner he did with another Squat Strong Slugger, Hal TNT Carroll,
Dwight never liked Movers, and with Bob's extended side-on Reach...he certainly has the tools to Keep Dwight in check on the Points tallies...I'll Give the Buzzsaw the benefit of the doubt about his ability to last the distance..
But Sheriff Bob's got the Guns to win this Little and Large show on points..

I think an early Galindez, with the sort of disruptive, seemingly reckless abandon that he showed in spurts (at the right time), would give Foster more trouble than Qawi, with his calm, methodical approach to chopping fighters down. He would find himself on the receiving end of Bob's jab too often coming in like that, and it wasn't his game to go balls to the wall like Galindez (despite his "Buzzsaw" moniker). I think Qawi is tailor made for Bob. A KO wouldn't surprise me at all.

This

Foster is going to detonate one of his bombs sooner or later. His bombs were good at cracking seemingly un-dentable chins. I see Bob scoring a KO in a sudden and shocking fashion. Qawi was no defensive whiz.
