Ask Gerry Cooney - June 21, 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 Maxboxing.com every week.


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.
 
Please submit your questions to: askgerrycooney@aol.com.
 
Our first question comes from Tony T., who asks:
 
Gerry, do you think that Deontay Wilder would stand a chance against Wladimir Klitschko or is he too green?
 
Our next question comes from Kenny D., who asks:
 
Hi Gerry, I’m 26 years old and I’m interested in becoming a boxer. I haven’t had any formal training or any amateur experience. Am I too old to start a career in boxing at 26?
 
And Gerry answered the following questions last week:
 
Our first question came from Ricky M., who asked:
 
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?
 
[Editor’s note: Gerry answered this question prior to Algieri’s WBO junior welterweight title win last weekend.] Gerry feels that, yes, it could be a distraction but that Algieri is so disciplined that he would overcome it and it would be a non-issue.
 
Our next question came from Caleb O., who asked:
 
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?
 
Gerry feels there are many factors that come into play when a champion is considering giving a rematch to a contender he already has beaten and that money is one of them but not necessarily the deciding factor.
