Foster himself would agree with that.

“Dick Tiger, man that fight was ice cream and cake. The guy was too short—he was 5’7” or 5’8” and I’m 6’3” and can knock this building over. I knew Tiger could punch, though. I just knew I could punch harder. But he was so damn short, it was hard getting anything to land."

Tiger however was one of the toughest fighters ever and had looked fairly impressive beating Jose Torres twice and then knocking out Roger Rouse who was close to Foster's height. He was actually doing a good job of taking away Foster's height and reach for 3 rounds until the left hook landed.
