Foster quit after the fifth round, claiming that he injured his left hand in the 4th round. He had previously quit after the fourth round, but continued after a 2+ minute break between rounds. The doctor examined Foster after the bout and x-rays were taken, but no damage was discovered. The fans booed and threw things at Foster, while the Danish Boxing Union withheld 50% of his purse.
