Ask Gerry Cooney- Nov. 16, 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 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 92 and XM channel 208 from 6 – 8 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.
Please submit your questions to
Our first question comes from Robert S., who asks:
Gerry, this week Adrien Broner makes his debut at 135 pounds challenging Antonio DeMarco for his WBC lightweight title. Many people feel that this is Broner’s toughest fight to date. How do you see this one and who do you think wins?
Our next question comes from Jimmy E., who asks:
This week, Gerry, Brian Viloria squares off against Hernan “Tyson” Marquez to unify the WBA / WBO versions of the flyweight title. Marquez has stated that he would rather die in the ring before he lets Viloria win. So how do you see this one?
Gerry answered the following questions on last week’s show:
Our first question came from Tony T, who asked:
Gerry, Carmen Basilio, a legend in boxing has passed away. Can you share your thoughts on Carmen’s impact on the sport of boxing?
Gerry said that he cherished every second that he ever had speaking with Carmen and Randy pointed out that it was Basilio who spearheaded the location of the International Boxing Hall of Fame in Canasota, New York.
Our next question came from Vinny G, who asked:
Hi Gerry, this Saturday, WBC super bantamweight champion Abner Mares squares off against WBA super bantamweight champion Anselmo Moreno. Who do you like and why?
Gerry liked the match-up and gave a slight edge to Mares, prior to the bout.
