Ask Gerry Cooney - March 1, 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 (or in today’s case, Saturday!).

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 Sports Zone Channel 92 from 6 - 8 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.
Please submit your questions to:
Our first question comes from Paul J., who asks:
Gerry, this week is the rematch between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Bryan Vera. I thought Vera was robbed in their first fight. Do you agree and how do you see the rematch going?
Our next question comes from Lou M., who asks:
Gerry, after suffering his third loss via second round KO at the hands of Luis Collazo, is Victor Ortiz finished in your opinion as an elite fighter?
Gerry answered the following question on last week’s show.
Our question came from Tony T, who asked:
Gerry, I’m kind of new to boxing and I find the three-knockdown rule somewhat confusing. If a fighter gets rocked but is able to continue, why shouldn’t he be allowed to? Someone told me that most fighters will fight to the death if allowed to. Is that true?
Gerry agrees that most fighters will keep trying to fight given the opportunity but the referee has to have a keen eye as to when to stop the fight if necessary.
