Cassius Clay vs. Henry Cooper

During a non-title fight at Wimbley Stadium in 1963, top British heavyweight Henry Cooper floored Cassius Clay (later known as Muhammad Ali) in the fourth round. Clay would end up being saved by the bell, but only after some nifty glove work on the part of his trainer Angelo Dundee. Dundee entered the ring and apparently split Clay’s glove, demanding a new one for his fighter before he could continue. But while the fight was delayed and the corner worked on replacing the glove, Dundee passed smelling salt across Clay’s nose to revive him. The entire incident was caught on tape.
