Ask Gerry Cooney – May 31, 2016

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 Maxboxing.com every week.

 

Each week, Gerry will answer two of your questions during Sirius XM radio show “At The Fights,” which Gerry co-hosts with Randy  Gordon, the  former Commissioner of the New York State Athletic Commission.


The show airs every Friday on Sirius / XM Rush Zone Channel 93 from 6-8 p.m.

 

Please submit your questions to: askgerrycooney@aol.com    

 

Our first question comes from Ray J. who asks:

 

Gerry, it’s no secret you had one of the most devastating left hooks many of us have ever seen.  I’ve always wondered, can a fighter develop a punch like that or does it just come natural?

 

Our next question comes from Paul L. who asks:

 

Gerry, so much is made out of weight.  Some divisions a just a couple of pounds apart, with weight that close. Does it really make that much difference?  

 

And Gerry answered the following questions on last week’s show.

 

Our first question came from Greg D. who asked:

 

Hi Gerry, I’m a long time boxing fan, and I can’t believe that I watched Victor Ortiz quit yet again as soon as Andre Berto had him in a little trouble.  He was clear eyed and in my opinion could have definitely continued when the referee asked him if he wanted to go on.  Instead, he looked right at the referee and did not respond.  The ref even asked him twice.  My question is, why keep giving this guy big fights if he’s just going to quit every time he gets hurt?

 

Gerry pointed out the even though a fighter may look like he can continue, you really can’t tell how hurt they are.

 

Our next question comes from Scott R. who asks:

 

Gerry, here’s a hypothetical for you.  If Saul Alvarez was ever to fight “Marvelous” Marvin Hagler, how do you think that fight would go?

 

Gerry thought that Alvarez wouldn’t stand a chance against Hagler.
