How do you see this going?
Hide for me bigger,faster ,and with very good power.
For me to.
Even despite having the Enery s ammer, I don't see him getting chance to use it much.
A similar ko as he suffered against Ingo for me, one minute Coopers there striking forward, then bang!
Cooper lost to guys like Bygraves,Johnson,Rischer,I'd make Hide favourite over them.
Yep can't say any different. Whilst Hide doesn't get a lot of credit mostly, he wasn't a bad fighter and had a fair dig. To mobile, fast and hard for Cooper to hack it imo.
I don’t particularly rate Hide but he’d be too much for Henry.
He has the power, size and speed to get Henry out of there.
I think Cooper beats the crap out of Hide. Breaks Hide's will to win.
My heart says so, my head says no.
Henry Cooper did have paper thin eyebrows that had a tendency to bleed when struck, but his left hook was very underrated. His left hook put a pre- title Muhammad Ali on the seat of his trunks as Ali was toying with him on June 18 1963. Herbie Hide may have size on him but I do believe that Henry despite his shortcomings defeats a good Herbie Hide on points in a tough fight as Herbie is not Ali, Floyd Patterson, or even Ingo in 1956.
Cooper for me, Hide can't take a punch, worst chin in boxing history, went down when no punch landed
A jab from Cooper would put his lights out
It's a real possibility.
The trouble is Henry’s chin wasn’t exactly A grade.
Cooper for mine. Hide was pretty enigmatic. At least Henry always presented himself to the best of his ability, Herbie not so much.
Hide round 2 KO
Hide early! if not Herbie gets fed up of Henry Hitting him and packs it in mix fight .Hide dispite his power was a poor finisher and a nutter
