A very sad loss.

As I'm a youngster, at 39, I don't remember his fighting days, but remember the Brut 33 ads well.

Seen him interviewed a few times and many modern so called sporting greats could learn a lot from him.

A great sportsman. Sad news, remember his bouts well.

I still love this marque and I will still be around, preferred selling to breaking, as a great runner and performer"

I had the privilege of meeting Henry Cooper when he came to our offices in the early 80's. Great man.

A gentleman ambassador from whom today's 'sportsmen' could learn a lot.

A great loss.

They knew he was dead when they counted to 10 and he didn't get up . . . :gmc:

I bet his son will not invite him in future in case he does it again :gmc:

Seriously, out of the ring always came over as a gentle gentleman.
