    Angry Jerry vs Foster?
    What is your opinion and who would win if Jerry wanted to revenge his brother after he saw what Foster did to Mike?

    Foster still wins. Quarry just cuts too easy and Foster is so aggressive. Foster TKO cuts 5. He could stop Quarry on cuts, but no way Quarry is getting KO'd.

    Quarry doesn't have to be angry to beat Foster.

    Foster would never win!
    Foster could not get past 2 rounds against Frazier!
    Ancient Folley UD him!Terrell,JonesBesmanoff beat him and knocked him!They are not near Quarry level!
    How Foster who is smaller,weaker than Quarry and lot levels under Patterson could stop Quarry in 5?
    Not even Norton,Ali and Frazier could do that?And Quarry beat Lyle,Shavers and bigger Foster who would kill Bob Foster inside of 3 rounds!
    Quarry would kill Bob easier than Mac and if anyone would get stopped inside of 5 it would be Bob!

    Folley was not ancient. He pounded Bonavena earlier that year. He was post-prime, not ancient. Besmanoff did not beat him and he did not floor Foster. Foster KO'd him in 3. Terrell and Folley were Quarry's level, if not better.
    Ridiculous. The three of them gave Quarry 5 of his 6 stoppage defeats. Quarry gave Frazier and Norton tough fights, but he was still stopped five times among the three of them.

    I realize it's very unorthodox pick, but everybody has their quirks, don't pick on mine.

    If you think this is such a one-sided massacre, why bother to start a thread on it? You should start a thread on a subject that you think might generate decent debate rather than a load of people agreeing with.

    What next? George Foreman v David Price? Marvin Hagler vs Reggie Strickland?

    Quarry stops him around 6-8, and it’s not really a hard pick IMO

    I think Jerry is a bit overrated by some.... but he has enough talent and skill to beat Foster. Jerry did have a way with guys who were in love with their power.

    Foster's record is a bit misleading .. he took the Jones fight on very short notice and ran out of gas .. He lost to Terrell but Earnie is a completely different match up than Quarry .. Ali and Frazier were two all time great heavyweights .. Quarry was not .. an absolute prime Foster had a shot of outboxing Jerry and cutting him up .. Jerry would be the favorite for sure but it would be oinyerestingh for them to have met in 1969 or 70 ..

    sure Foster was a big puncher but he hadn't yet really proved to be a great figher whereas Lyle and Shavers had. Foster had yet to beat someone of Quarry's caliber. He had defeated Cleveland Williams, Zora Folley, and Thad Spencer-none of whom were prime. Lyle hadn't really beaten a top, prime fighter yet, but he had defeated a bunch of decent to good fighters. Shavers had a lot of fights, but had some good wins, like over Ellis, Young, and ex-lhw champ Vicente Rondon. All powerful guys, but Foster was in a different class of power.

    Bob had a dreadful record against top line Heavyweights. His bombs at Light Heavy didn't move them and he couldn't take their power.
    Quarry could take a genuine elite level Heavyweight's punch and could knock them out with his own. This is an easy one to predict.
    Foster lands a big left hook, thinks he's nailed Jerry, walks in after it and gets wrecked. See Mac Foster or even Earnie Shavers.
    Bob is cooked from the moment he lands the first big shot. It wouldn't go 4.
