Rest In Peace to a gentleman, I met him at Heathrow a few years back, a really nice guy.

Very sad news and a real shock. He seemed really well in the recent 'Facing Ali' documentary.

I've never ever heard even one single negative comment about Cooper. He has always been a source of great pride for the UK. Boxing history will always remember the terrific left hook he landed on Clay (Ali).

That's what I thought.

It's already slowly being forgotten.

I just remembered that Cooper was the only man to fight Cassius Clay AND Muhammad Ali.

Suprised and saddened by the news Enry looked good for a fair few years. Remember going to see him fight Ali at Highbury and the collective groan around the stadium when he got cut. Lot of fighters get more money and belts but can't think of many more loved.
