Anyone who can count to ten knows that Cooper KO'd Clay in their first fight. Bad reffing and questionable corner tactics saved Ali.
There was more to Cooper than that though. A fine British Champion,(the only boxer to ever win 3 lonsdale belts outright) he became a national treasure, and one of the best ambassadors the sport of boxing will ever see - and 'enry's 'ammer (cockney accent: Henry's hammer) was one of the best left hands in the history of the sport.
A true gent, and a true legend, RIP
