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 Gordon, the former Commissioner of the New York State Athletic C


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


Please submit your questions to:


Our first question comes from Donny H. who asks:


Gerry, we lost one of my favorite characters in boxing, Lou Duva. I had the opportunity to meet Lou once and he was one of the nicest men I ever met. I was wondering if you have any memories of Lou and if so, could you share some with us?


Our next question comes from Paul L. who asks:


Gerry, I read that the fight between Danny Garcia and Keith Thurman, which was on free TV did over 5 million viewers. If those numbers are correct, do you think it might help in bringing more advertising dollars to fight cards, resulting in even more great fights being on free TV?
