Biography

British pro boxer for 17 years with his first recognition by age 18. He boxed internationally, winning the British, Commonwealth and European heavyweight titles. In 1969 after a dispute with the Boxing Board, he relinquished his British empire and European titles - and won them all back in the ring the following year. He was remembered in 1963 for knocking down Muhammad Ali. In 1969, he was awarded the Order of the British Empire, and retired in 1971 to become a boxing director.

Cooper was prone to eye injuries. He married in 1960 and had two sons. He had a twin brother born 20 minutes earlier than he.

In recognition of his charity work as well as for his boxing championships, Queen Elizabeth II knighted Cooper in late February 2000. He was the first boxer to receive this honor.

Cooper died of a long, unspecified illness on May 1, 2011 in Oxted,England
