I watched the replay of the Bugner fight a few years ago, I'll admit it was much closer than I remembered, but Enry still won it the only one who thought otherwise was the ref.
I don't think "Prone to cuts" quite covers it, Henry Cooper splattered more claret over the ring than anybody else I can think of.
Still time to put away the Ammer and rest in peace.
I met him many years ago at an open day at Perkins Diesels, Peterborough. A very nice, quietly spoken man, with the biggest hands I have ever shaken. Fortunately we had a photo taken together which I kept and now is scanned for posterity.
There are many I have met and few I remember as well.
I recall a long time ago he ran a Greengrocers shop in Wembley High Road on the corner of Ealing Road. He was always cheerful, and often acknowledged drivers, stopped at the traffic lights by his shop, and recognised him.
