RIP Sir Henry Cooper. A gent out of the ring and not one to cross inside it.

A true legend who will be sadly missed.

Bummer, I had the pleasure( friggin thrill really,) of meeting him on two occasions.
He feigned a punch to my jaw for a photo, and caught me harder than he intended. It was at that moment in time I decided that boxing was not my way forward. It was at the Lakeside club a dart's venue.
Ah my 15 minutes of fame..
RIP

It has been a bad weekend on the undertaker stakes:

Prof Richard Holmes - historian and TA Brigadier
Ted Lowe - snooker commentator
Our 'Enry

RIP all of you. Over the years each of them has given me much pleasure and entertainment.

Great exponent of British boxing with a heart to match.If only he didn't cut so much who knows what would have been.
He creamed most that crossed him.
A true gent you won't be forgotten.RIP

RIP to all. Especially Prof. Holmes. Had the pleasure of attending a lecture of his on several occasions and met him personally a few times. Fascinating man.

Henry Cooper was a legend of sport. One of the few true gentlemen
