R.I.P. Bert Cooper

Re: R.I.P. Bert Cooper


I loved watching him fight. He entertained at Cruiserweight then Heavyweight. He had a chin, the skills and the power. He came out of Philadelphia and was originally trained by the Legend Joe Frazier. He fought some of the best around and took part in some wild fights (The Michael Moorer fight is one of the best in Heavyweight history). He should've got a World title-shot at Cruiserweight but turned to Heavyweight. Never won the HW belt but gave Holyfield hell. Not always the most focused but he could fight. His resume is packed - wins and loses. He's well known for smashing undefeated Willie DeWitt, bare-knuckle boxer Joe Savage and Richie Melito. Beat quality like Joe Hipp and Orlin Norris. At Cruiser, he was the NABF champ taking Henry Tillman's '0'. His final record was 38-25, 31 KOs. Rest in Peace, Champ.
