1973-08-21 Bob Foster w pts 15 Pierre Fourie, University Arena, Alburquerque, New Mexico, USA - WORLD. Referee: Jim Cleary. Scorecards: 148-120, 149-130, 149-138. Despite being cut over the right eye as early as the first round, Fourie (168) stuck to his battle plan of trying to negate the champion’s huge reach advantage by staying as close to him as possible. Although Foster (173) used the jab well, Fourie occasionally found a way inside where he could work the body, but for much of the time he was kept at bay. Cut over the left eye in tenth and starting to tire, Foster began to coast knowing that his challenger lacked the power to damage him and his trusty left did the rest.
