British boxing heavyweight legend Sir Henry Cooper dies at 76

Cooper, who in 1963 knocked down a young man who went by the name of Cassius Clay in a world title fight, will be fondly remembered by all who knew and respected him.

Clay, now known as Muhammad Ali, of course, was 18-0 at the time and was shocked by a crushing left hook that was fondly known as “‘Enry’s Ammer.”

Sir Henry ended his seventeen-year boxing career in 1971 with a record of 40-14-1, 27 KO’s.

HENRY COOPER GREATS

He shared the ring with Floyd Patterson, Muhammad Ali (twice), and Ingemar Johannson in a glittering career that just failed to hit the very top.

Mr. Cooper will be forever remembered as a great ambassador for the sport, a true gentleman, and a boxing man through and through.
