"Bobby Foster, a rising light heavyweight from Washington, D.C., scored a TKO over 10th ranked Henry Hank of Detroit in the 10th round Friday night at the Norfolk Arena. The end came suddenly in the final round when Foster floored Hank with a left to the stomach. The Detroit veteran, writhing in pain, rose to his feet at the count of nine, but referee Paddy Mills decided he was in no condition to continue. It was the first knockout of Hank's long career and only the second time he has been knocked off his feet in more than 70 bouts." -Associated Press
