Ask Gerry Cooney – August 22, 2013

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 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: askgerrycooney@aol.com.
 
Our first question comes from Angelo Pessolano, who asks:
 

Gerry, you possessed one of the hardest punches in heavyweight history. Among many others,   Larry Holmes and George Foreman both attest to that. My question is, when throwing the   left hook, should your body weight end up on the right leg while the punch lands?

 

  
Our next question comes from Ken Hissner, of Doghouse Boxing who asks:
  
Gerry, at SteelStacks’ last show, Mike Mittman introduced Larry Holmes as “the man who held the title longer and with the most defenses in the heavyweight division.” Any novice boxing historian knows Joe Louis held the title for 14 years and defended it successfully 25 times. Holmes only held it for seven years and had 20 successful defenses. Even Wladimir Klitschko has held the title longer than Holmes did. I was offended by that and I saw you sitting ringside with Larry that night. Were you offended as well?
