After a good first round in which both fighters landed with stinging jabs, Frazier sent Foster reeling to the canvas with a hook that splattered across the challenger's jaw. Foster rose to his feet, groggily, his legs rubbery under him and was allowed to continue. Frazier bored in and made the end mercifully quick. Another left hook put Foster down and he took the count flat on his back, his glazed eyes looking at the overhanging lights.

After Frazier drilled him in two rounds, Foster went back to the dressing room in a daze. At one point, he began putting his shoes back on again.
"What are you doing?" trainer Billy Edwards asked.
"Getting ready to fight!" Foster said.
"Nah," Edwards said, "the fight's over, son."
