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 Paul K., who asks:
Gerry, what did you think of the Lucas Matthysse-John Molina fight? I thought it was one of the best fights I’ve ever seen! Do you agree?
Our next question comes from Terry H., who asks:
Gerry, I heard you guys discussing the Ruslan Provodnikov-Chris Algieri fight last week and I got the impression that you think Algieri may be in for a tough night. My questions are: Can Algieri win and if so, what do you think he has to do to pull off the upset?
Gerry answered the following questions on last week’s show:
Our first question came from Bobby L., who asked:
Gerry, how long do you think Bernard Hopkins can go on fighting? He’s going on 50 and still looks damn good in my opinion. What do you think?
Gerry pointed out that there are a lot of “green” fighters in the light heavyweight division and that Hopkins still seems to be fighting well, so he feels Bernard can continue as long as his body holds up.
Our next question came from Teddy B., who asked:
Gerry, do you think it would cut down on injuries if professional fighters were to wear headgear like the amateurs do?
Gerry pointed out that headgear is mostly used to prevent cuts in sparring. He doesn’t believe it would make it safer for the fighters.
