Ask Gerry Cooney – December 5th, 2014


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 Tony G. who asks:


Gerry, as I was watching the Algieri / Pacquiao fight I noticed two things about Algieri. One he seems to have a pretty good left hook to the body and two, he doesn’t seem to have much power. Everyone knows that you had probably the best left hook to the body ever, so have you ever considered working with Algieri to teach him how to land that and other punches with the kind of power he needs?


Our next question comes from Rocco D. who asks:


Gerry, this week Erislandy Lara is taking on Ishe Smith. How much of a chance do you think Smith has against Lara?


And Gerry answered the following questions last week:


***** Due to the fact that last weeks show was pre-empted for basketball Gerry was unable to respond to last weeks questions.
