Sir Henry Cooper ' British Heavyweight Boxing Champion ' Boxing Signed Card Autograph. £25.00
This is a superb hand signed 6" x 4" white card by the late British Heavyweight Boxing Champion. This is the signature he used after being 'Knighted'.
Sir Henry Cooper OBE (3 May 1934 –1 May 2011) was an English heavyweight boxer known for a particularly effective left hook (known as "Enry's 'Ammer") and his knockdown of the young Muhammad Ali, then known as Cassius Clay. Cooper held the British and European heavyweight boxing titles, and, following his retirement from the sport, continued his career as a television and radio personality. In later years, he retired from commentary on boxing as he became "disillusioned with boxing", wanting "straight, hard and fast boxing that he was used to from his times." Cooper received an OBE in 1969 and a knighthood in 2000. He was enormously popular in Britain: he was the first (and is today one of just three people) to twice win the public vote for BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award.
