1972-06-27 : Bob Foster 173½ lbs beat Mike Quarry 175 lbs by KO at 3:00 in round 4 of 15

WBC Light Heavyweight Title
WBA World Light Heavyweight Title

In a bout which can be seen on YouTube, Foster chased clever 35-0 counter puncher Quarry for three rounds, who counter-jabbed and moved left and right and tied Foster up wherever possible. By the fourth round, though, the fast pace had Quarry with his mouth open and visibly tired. This left him up for Foster's left, which began to land more frequently. Foster landed a right cross followed by a left hook which dropped Quarry just before the bell sounded ending the fourth round at 3:00. Quarry was down on his back and out-and got counted out. Tense moment for Foster, who had great concern for the life of his unconscious opponent after this bout ended.

Mike was the brother of popular world class heavyweight contender Irish Jerry Quarry.
