Each week, Gerry will answer as many of your questions as he can on the Sirius XM radio show “Friday Night at The Fights,” which Gerry co-hosts with Randy “The Commish” Gordon, former Chairman of the New York State Athletic Commission.
The show airs every Friday on Sirius Sport Zone Channel 92 from 6-8 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.
Our first question comes from Ricky M., who asks:
Gerry, I read that Chris Algieri was in court this week because his ex-manager was suing him for $1,000,000 and requesting that the judge stop his bout this Saturday with Ruslan Provodnikov. The judge refused to stop the bout but seeing that Algieri is fighting for a title this Saturday, how much of a distraction do you think that is?
Our next question comes from Caleb O., who asks:
Gerry, many people are calling for a rematch between Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana because a lot of people had it very close. Do you think a champion should give a contender a second shot based on that? Should he move on because he won or does it just boil down to money?
And Gerry answered the following questions last week:
Our first question came from Bobby L., who asked:
Gerry, after [former CEO] Richard Schaefer bailed on Golden Boy Promotions, Floyd Mayweather and Bernard Hopkins both announced they are leaving the company. Two questions: Can Oscar De la Hoya run it himself with the same level of success and do you think Schaefer will join Al Haymon to form a powerhouse promotion company and give Top Rank Promotions and Golden Boy a run for their money?
Gerry felt a collaboration between Schaefer and Haymon would immediately create a powerhouse promotional company.
[Editor’s note: Despite the question for Gerry, Hopkins leaving Golden Boy is unsubstantiated. Although he has shown concern about the professional dissolution, Hopkins has not made any moves in regard to leaving Golden Boy Promotions.]
Our next question came from Chris B., who asked:
Gerry, who do you like in the match-up between Miguel Cotto and Sergio Martinez?
Gerry said it would be a great match but he felt Cotto would win.
