Henry Cooper vs. Cassius Clay (1963)



'Our 'Enry' was born in Lambeth in 1934 and enjoyed his most celebrated moment in a boxing ring when he fought a young Cassius Clay in Wembley Stadium in 1963.
Having prepared for the fight without a trainer few gave Cooper any chance against the phenom from the States.
However Cooper held his own and even managed to knock down Clay when he connected with his trademark left hook, 'Enry's 'Ammer', in the dying seconds of the fourth round.
Clay was saved by the bell and managed to rally later in the fight and get the win.
