Ask Gerry Cooney- Dec. 13, 2012

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.

Each week, Gerry will answer as many of your questions as he can on the SiriusXM radio show, “Friday Night at The Fights,” a show that Gerry co-hosts with Randy “The Commish” Gordon, the 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
Our first question comes from Bobby L., who asks:
Gerry, I am friggin’ furious!  We all saw the devastating knockout that Manny Pacquiao endured at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez last Saturday night, and I’m sure I’m not alone when I say there were some very anxious moments for me as Manny lay on his face not moving. But, it seems that casual fans have taken to Photoshopping that picture into other scenes trying to be funny. Even Ishe Smith, a so-called professional fighter has done it continually. I find this in extremely poor taste and I find it very disrespectful to a great champion. Am I wrong?
Our next question comes from Louis V., who asks:
Hey, Champ, after Saturday’s victory over Manny Pacquiao, should Marquez get another shot at Mayweather and if he does, who do you think wins this time?
Gerry answered the following questions on last week’s show:
Our first question came from Jimmy E., who asked:
Hey, Gerry, I saw you sitting ringside at Trout-Cotto. Did you see it mostly for Trout or did you have it closer?
Gerry stated that, sitting at ringside, he had the fight very close although he did feel Austin Trout was clearly the winner.
Our next question came from Miguel R., who asked:
Gerry, do you think there is any fighter out there today that could beat Floyd Mayweather Jr.?
Gerry stated that it’s kind of hard to tell since Mayweather doesn’t really fight on a regular basis.
