Bruno would be too strong and too big for Cooper, I don't think Cooper ever shared a ring with a heavy hitter like that, the dude was avoiding a fight with Sonny Liston.

It'd be Cooper's left hook vs Bruno's right hand. Cooper's main problem was that he used to get easily which led to TKO losses.

I think Bruno would have won a close decision due to him being a bit stronger. He and Bruno were roughly the same size, but Bruno had more muscle and a bit more power in his right hand than Cooper had in his left.

i think bruno had enough power and boxing skills to KO cooper if nt the fight would be stopped due to cuts

Bruno would take the win but his stamina is questionable due to the fact that his strength and conditioning was bodybuilding oriented and in boxing that's the kiss of death.

yes i agree bruno was more like a bodybuilder than a prizefighter i think he only did the full 12 rounds once but i think his stamina was Ok in fights.
If i was him id be more worried about getting caught on the glass jaw :P
