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 7 – 9 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.
Our first question comes from across the pond from Gary Dewhurst, who asks:
Gerry, rumor over here in the U.K. is that Ricky Hatton will make a comeback and is targeting Paulie Malignaggi. Given that Paulie has been beaten by both Hatton and Amir Khan, is this a decent matchup?
Our next question comes from Jimmy E., who asks:
Manny Pacquiao keeps pushing back the date of his next fight. First November, then December and now even later in December. As a former contender, do you think this indicates an unwillingness to fight, signaling that Manny is growing tired of the game?
Gerry answered the following questions on the air last Friday.
Our first question came from Tony T., who asked:
Gerry, most folks are not giving Josesito Lopez much of a chance against Saul Alvarez. Do you agree?
Gerry thinks Alvarez will prove to be too much for Lopez but he anticipates a great fight until Alvarez wears him down.
Our next question came from Richard P., who asked:
Gerry, as a fellow Long Islander, I’ve always been curious about one thing about you. What made you decide to go into boxing?
Gerry explained that his older brother got into boxing and, as a result, Gerry began gravitating to the gym and started working out on the heavy bag in his basement. He really liked boxing and decided to make it his career.
