  2. Sad news he was a character. RIP
  3. One of the few gentlemen sports stars. Should have been heavy weight champion after knocking down Muhammed Ali. RIP.
  4. 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.
  5. 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 all of you. Over the years each of them has given me much pleasure and entertainment.
