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 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 94 and XM channel 208 from 6 – 8 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.
Our first question this week comes from Frankie C., who asks:
Gerry, the Klitschko brothers have dominated the heavyweight division for a very long time. After their careers are over, do you think they’ll be remembered as great champions or do you think that they’ll be seen as mediocre fighters who were dominant simply because the competition was so poor?
Our next question comes from Dave G., who asks:
Gerry, why do you think Manny Pacquiao would opt to fight Juan Manuel Marquez for a fourth time rather than avenge his loss to Tim Bradley? I know I have no interest in watching these guys fight the same fight for a fourth time, do you?
Gerry answered the following question on the air last Friday.
Our big question last week came from Rich C., who asks:
Gerry, how do you think the winner of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.-Sergio Martinez would do against [super middleweight champion] Andre Ward?
Gerry thinks that, regardless of who wins, facing Ward would be no easy task for either one.
