Ask Gerry Cooney – Oct. 18, 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 every Thursday morning (or in this case, Friday 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:
Our first question comes from Paul J., who asks:
Gerry, I thought Tim Bradley handled Juan Manuel Marquez rather easily. So, does that give [Bradley] his credibility back after the Manny Pacquiao fight?
Our next question comes from Phil D., who asks:
Hey Gerry, I saw you on “The Late Show with David Letterman” and Randy on “30 for 30: No Mas.” How about you guys do a remake of “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”?
Gerry answered the following questions on last week’s show:
Our first question came from Jon O., who asked:
Gerry, I listened to the very spirited discussion you, Randy and Allan had last week on whether judges are corrupted in boxing. My question is, since judging a fight is so subjective, how would one ever go about regulating such a thing?
Gerry feels more money needs to be put into training for judges and they should be called to task for an obviously blown call.
Our next question came from Henry T., who asked:
Gerry, assuming Manny Pacquiao gets past Brandon Rios, do you think the Floyd Mayweather-Pacquiao showdown will finally happen and do you think anyone still cares?
Gerry thinks the Pacquiao-Rios fight will be a good one and although he feels the spark is out of the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, most people would still pay to see it.
