Clearly! Jerry Quarry would decimate Haye for example.

Havent read through the thread, but I'm sure Flea Man is splurtting absolute nonsense, and of course backing Cooper to beat Haye.

Henry wouldnt handle D. Williams at his best never mind Haye.

Cooper was never a top 10 heavy ever in his pro carrer.

Let's look at The Ring rankings from the 'Golden era' that can never be matched.


The Ring ranking's. 1960
Floyd Patterson, Champion
Sonny Liston
Ingemar Johansson
Eddie Machen
Zora Folley
Henry Cooper
Mike DeJohn
Robert Cleroux
Alex Miteff
**** Richardson
Joe Erskine


1961
Floyd Patterson, Champion
Sonny Liston
Eddie Machen
Zora Folley
Alejandro Lavorante
Robert Cleroux
Ingemar Johansson
Cleveland Williams
Henry Cooper
Cassius Clay
George Logan

1962
Sonny Liston, Champion
Floyd Patterson
Cassius Clay
Doug Jones
Ingemar Johansson
Zora Folley
Cleveland Williams
Robert Cleroux
Billy Daniels
Archie Moore
Henry Cooper


1970
Joe Frazier, Champion
Muhammad Ali
George Foreman
Oscar Bonavena
Jerry Quarry
Mac Foster
Henry Cooper
George Chuvalo
Sonny Liston
Jose Ibar Urtain
Jose Luis Garcia


Clearly back in the day during 'The golden era' Haye would have had zero chance of cracking the top 10.

Flea man youre right.Apart from Ali,johannson and Patterson who Cooper lost to,he won and lost to Zora Folley,who imo was far better than Monte Barrett.David may have beaten Karl Mildenberger,but it wouldnt have been easy,and Henry wouldve been easily capable of winning the cruiserweight title
