I think Ezzard Charles is the only one I'd really favour. Spinks, Moore, Tunney are all tight fights.

On his best day, Charles beats any Light Heavy ever IMO. Foster gets clipped out there. Moore would be interesting; could he get inside? If he could, he could KO him. Spinks would be pick 'em.

I'd give Foster the edge H2H, against Johnson.

I think Johnson would win if it went to a Decision and I think he would be leading on the cards but I just worry that when he lands one of those huge bombs that Johnson would be in big trouble.

I wouldn't argue with that.

IF Foster can land a flush bomb he can get ANY LHW out of there. He was an excellent finisher. I would pick Charles and Moore to beat him. Charles made great fighters look mediocre like he got paid to do it (oh wait....). And Moore is so crafty and versatile he would find a way to win.

Spinks and Moore both have a good chance, Foster isn't unbeatable IMO.

To be perfectly honest I think the question should be who wouldn't beat Bob Foster at Light Heavyweight? The guy not only has a thin LHW resume, but he lost to 2 of his 4 best LHW opponents (which were prime, unlike 1 of the remaining 2). Ignoring those losses because the guys were a few lbs over the LHW limit (standard in non title situations) I've always found to be laughable.

Charles, Moore, and Tunney for sure. Spinks and Roy Jones I think are even fights on paper.....could go either way. Conn and John Henry Lewis might be dark horses.
