RIP Our 'Enery

Sad news of the death of Henry Cooper today. Always remembered for his famous 'ammer, that fabulous left hook that was measured once to only have travelled about 12", and especially for the time he dumped Cassius Clay on the seat of his pants.

I met him in Wembley once, a lovely guy. The book on his life is a compelling read.

RIP Our 'Enery


  1. A sad day indeed Paul, i was too late into the world to really appreciate who he really was a boxer but what little i saw and heard of him on the t.v. he always came across as a true gentleman.

    The world has lost someone special.
