Ask Gerry Cooney - Feb. 6, 2014

Compiled by Allan Scotto

Hey, fans! Welcome to “Ask Gerry Cooney,” where you get to ask former heavyweight contender “Gentleman” Gerry Cooney any boxing-related question you’d like. Your questions for Gerry’s review will be featured at every Thursday morning.

Each week, Gerry will answer as many of your questions as he can on the Sirius XM radio show “Friday Night at The Fights,” a show Gerry co-hosts with Randy “The Commish” Gordon, former Chairman of the New York State Athletic Commission.


The show airs every Friday on Sirius channel 92 and XM channel 208 from 6 - 8 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.


Please submit your questions to:


Our first question comes from Bernie Campbell, who asks:


Gerry, why does Oliver McCall beat a dead horse by continuing to box professionally?

Our next question comes from Mike M., who asks:


Gerry, what do you think of George Zimmerman boxing DMX and do you think this will turn into a huge event because of Zimmerman’s notoriety?


Gerry answered the following questions last week:


Our first question came from Neil Morton, who asked:


Gerry, I understand you have started training at a new gym in Hoboken. Are you making a comeback due to the current state of heavyweight division?


Gerry pointed out that Neil Morton is a great guy who does a lot for boxing in Jersey and that Gerry actually fights two guys out of that gym for charity every year. He even broke one poor guy’s ribs! Like Rocky Balboa said, “Sometimes charity really hurts!”


Our next question came from Kenny D., who asked:


Gerry, what do you think of bareknuckled boxing? I hear about underground fights where they are not using gloves. Isn’t that extremely dangerous?


Gerry feels it is similar to MMA and he is not particularly fond of either one.
