For sale...'Enry's 'Ammer's that floored The Greatest.<br />
<br />
A British boxing legend's gloves - that Muhammad Ali claimed hit him so hard "his ancestors in Africa felt it" have emerged for auction for the knock out price of £50,000. <br />
<br />
Sir Henry Cooper wore them when he sent him crashing to the mat with his trademark 'Enry's 'Ammer' left hook in front of a baying Wembley crowd in 1963.<br />
<br />
Described at the time as 'the punch that shook the world' it was one of the few times the fighter was floored - although he controversially recovered.
