This fight is garbage. Ali should have been DQ'd. Dundee purposely tore Ali's glove, and they used smelling salts after Cooper knocked him down in the 4th which were illegal in Britain in the 50's. Cooper DQ win in my book. To the fight - Cooper had the right strategy, he used his lead left hook over and over and Ali had no answer. In the first round, Ali complained about getting hit too much. He danced and posed without throwing. This was not a good night for Ali.

That's interesting, I wasn't aware of any illegal substance, but the glove cutting is controversial to say the least. There should have been a punishment for the glove cutting and use of the salts in my opinion, but Ali still recovered and stopped Cooper, and I think Ali would have survived without the extra time, based on how durable he proved to he later in his career.
