1970-04-04 Bob Foster w rsc 4 (15) Roger Rouse, Adams Fieldhouse, Missoula, Montana, USA - WORLD. Referee: Lee Sala. In control from the start with the left jab paving the way, Foster (174) had too much of everything for his challenger, who was under pressure and floored twice in the opening round. When Rouse (173½) received a bad cut over the left eye in the second session and was dropped again courtesy of a solid right to the head it was almost the end of the line for him. The third session saw much of the same and after Rouse was put down for a fourth time, a right to the jaw doing the damage, when the bell rang to start the fourth the referee, under the doctor’s orders, stopped the contest.
