    Chris Finnegan had been stopped before, on cuts, Foster was the only guy to stop him with punches. Frank DePaula was stopped just twice in his career, but Foster turned the trick in a single round with a right uppercut. Henry Hank lost thirty-one fights in his career but Foster was the only fighter able to stop him. Mark Tessman was stopped only once by concussion and that concussion was inflicted by Foster’s punches.

    Foster was not survivable.

    Yes indeed,Fergy. Bob and Archie probably the hardest hitting 175lb men ever based on that criteria.

    Bob had Vicente Rondon twitching and out. I would say definite yes.

    That left hook was beautiful, putting Dick Tiger and Quarry away.

    Also the knockout of Chris Finnegan in Sept 1972, KO 14.

    That left hook by Bob Foster made Joe Frazier blink before Frazier ended that title bout on Nov 18 1970 by a brutal KO 2.
