Hey I was woundering if any one can help find out the history of who Bob Foster had fought with in the '60's thru the '70's? I found that my father had passed away when I was looking for him online,and I remember him saying he had fought in the Light Heavy Weight at one time, and I thought he said it was with Bob Foster? He spent must of my life in prison and I really did not know much about him and wanted to learn alittle more.

I would be very greatful for any advise and direction I can get.

Thanks for your time,

kevin
