1971-03-02 Bob Foster w co 4 (15) Hal Carroll, Catholic Youth Centre, Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA - WBC. Referee: Manny Gelb. Coming back after being knocked out by Joe Frazier in an unsuccessful challenge for the heavyweight title, Foster (174) quickly imposed himself on Carroll (171½), flooring him three times in the second round before opening up a deep gash on his left eye in the third. Having great difficulty in dealing with Foster’s huge reach advantage, Carroll was there to be taken and following a smashing right cross to the head he was counted out at 2.32 of the fourth.
