Tage 4 Frazier Fixes Foster In Second Round KO THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1970 By WILLIAM VERIGAN UPI Sports Writer DETROIT ZUPI>-Joe Frazier has proved it to Bob Foster, and now his next battle , will be to prove to the world that he really is the undisputed heavyweight champion pn8 a showdown against Cassius Clay. The 26-year-old Philadelphian brushed away | one more obstacle standing between him and a bout with Clay Wednesday night by slamming Foster to the canvas for a three- minute knockout at 49 secods of the second round. But even in the aftermath of victory, Frazier had to endure the taunt, "You can't never beat Clay." It I was a sorrowful ending to a spectacular knockout I Foster jOout Cold After taking! the best right hand Foster, aj noted right hand hitter, could muster in the first round, Frazier raged back to knock down j the light heavyweight champion with a combination only 20 seconds into the second round. The 31-year-old challenger. wto failed to the big title, becooe the first light heavy king to move up to struggled to his feet at the count of nine and tried to retreat. But Frazier, smokin' and snortin' as promised, charged | across the ring, trapped him against the ropes and sized hinf up for the final left hook. After the smoke cleared, Foster lay on his back as Dr. Robert Bennett worked feverishly to revive him, the 26th consecutive victim of the meat- cleaver left of the one-time butcher. •What About Clay?' "I told everybody there's no way Clay can beat you," Foster told Drazier later in the dressing room. "Clay hasn't got nothing to keep you off." But the smile of jubilation vanished from Frazier's face as he left the dressing room and walked into a jeering cluster of five or six fans,, who drowned out all the cheers. "What about Clay?" they taunted. "Clay was watching you on television, you bum. You can't never beat Clay." Frazier: 'I'm Confident' . The jeers were merely an echo of Clay, who shouted "I want Frazier! I want Frazier!" after watching the fifbt on television in Atlanta. Through tightened lips, Frazier said softly to a friend, "I ain't thinking about him yet. .I'll wait until after Clay fights (Oscar) Bonavena. Bonavena's got a chance to ruin any plans." [ Then he added, "If it comes to it, I'm confident I'll beat him." Only last February Frazier gained the undisputed, title by beating Jimmy Ellis, but then Clay, who had been barred Pro Basketba Sa,ans °* m ADA MB^ 1970-71 BB ABA NBA Schedule at CC Tipton Blue Devil 1970-71 Basketball Team ELKS Doe to an oversight on our part, no band was contracted for Nov. 21st Therefore, the dance scheduled for that date will be held Nov. 28th B.P.O.E.#1012 Winning is a habit with Frank Ramsey.
