Ask Gerry Cooney- July 19, 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 Sirius/XM 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.
Please submit your questions to
Our first question this week comes from Randy M., who asks:
This past Saturday, Danny Garcia demolished Amir Khan.  It looked to me like Garcia’s left hook that caused the first knockdown actually caught him in the neck, and it seemed that Khan just couldn’t recover from that.  Why do you think that punch was so devastating?
Our next question comes from Todd R., who asks:
Hi Gerry, it seems like David Haye is trying to parlay his victory over Chisora into another shot at one of the Klitschko brothers.  Do you have any interest in seeing that fight?
Gerry answered the following questions on the air last Friday.
Our first question came from Tony T., who asked:
Hey Champ, long time listener.  I notice that two names are being kicked around as the next opponent for Saul Alvarez, Ricardo Mayorga and Josesito Lopez.  Who would you like to see in the ring with Alvarez and why?
Since this question aired, it was announced that Josesito Lopez got the nod but Gerry would have liked to have seen Mayorga because his fights are always exciting and entertaining.
Our next question came from Frank C., who asked:
Gerry, we’re finally going to get to see Chavez Jr. against Sergio Martinez.  I think Chavez beats him soundly, what do you think?
Gerry loves this match-up and thinks Chavez has a great chance of beating Martinez. He also feels Chavez has proven himself and silenced his critics.
