JimCrossley --

I can't find the gate for that fight.  The Cooper-Clay (now Muhammad
Ali) fight in May, 1966 at Wembley Stadium in London had a gate of
$1.2 million:

Time Magazine
"Prizefighting's Million-Dollar Gates",23657,904805,00.html

I checked the New York Times for the Sept. 20, 1966 Cooper vs.
Patterson gate, but none is mentioned in the stories on the fight,
which Patterson won with a knockout.

Google search strategy:
"floyd patterson" "Henry Cooper" purse
