Incredible 1966 photograph of exiled champion Cassius Clay who was relegated to fight in London because of his refusal to enter the Vietnam War! Images from his fight against Henry Cooper in Europe are almost impossible to find with this example being off the original negative and issued through a foreign news service! Here Clay ducks away from a left by Cooper and retained his phantom title (he was stripped for not entering the draft) with a 6th round TKO. This is the only example of a photo from this rare fight we have ever seen as Clay was very unpopular in America at the time and this is a nearly perfect example!
