96,235. A native of Stone in Staffordshire, Cooper was known as ‘The Bargeman’ because he worked as a labourer on canal boats. Of gypsy blood, he is said to be the man on whom George Borrow based his character, ‘The Flaming Tinman’, in Romany Rye. Rated one of the most complete boxers of his time, Cooper could hit hard and fast with both hands, was noted for his skilful use of the ‘one, two’, was adept at blocking and countering and topped all this with an ample supply of courage. Bill Richmond, the great black boxer, called him ‘the best natural fighter I have worked with’. (Boxing & Gypsy) Patrick Myler, The Steps to Strength and Fame
