080 – Henry Cooper v Muhammad Ali

In the summer of 1966 there was a football tournament played in England, but the real sporting event (certainly as far as this blog is concerned!) was at Highbury where Muhammad Ali defeated Henry Cooper in a world title bout, or as some called it the second battle of Highbury.

The first scan is a press photo of the ground filling up pre-match (no backslip) and the rest are from Boxing news.
