Ask Gerry Cooney – January 5th, 2015

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 week.

Each week, Gerry will answer as many of your questions as he can on the Sirius XM radio show “Friday Night at The Fights,” which Gerry co-hosts with Randy “The Commish” Gordon, former Chairman of the New York State Athletic Commission.


The show airs every Friday on Sirius Sport Zone Channel 92 from 6-8 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.


Please submit your questions to:


Our first question comes from Doug Y. who asks:


Gerry, If Alvarez meets Cotto in 2015, how do you see that fight?


Our next question comes from Chris S. who asks:


Based on his performance against Pac Man, what do you think Chris Algieri needs to do to be able to fight at that level?


And Gerry answered the following questions last week:


Our first question came from Tom H. who asked:


Gerry, do you think any heavyweight that’s out there will be able to truly challenge Vladimir Klitscho in 2015?


Gerry wants to see what the outcome of Stiverne / Wilder is, because he feels the winner of that fight should get a shot at Klitscho.


Our next question came from Ricky T. who asked:


Gerry, Shannon Briggs has been getting a lot of press in his quest to fight Klitscho. In fact he’s even been on this show. Do you think he is to be taken seriously?


Gerry does not think that Briggs should be taken seriously and points out that he isn’t training properly.
