Ask Gerry Cooney – August 14th, 2015

--

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 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/XM Rush Zone Channel 93 from 6-8 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.


Please submit your questions to: askgerrycooney@aol.com

 

Our first question came from Randy S. who asked:

 

Gerry, I’ve heard the Bernard Hopkins is going to fight Gennady Golovkin. At 51 years of age, timeless as he seems, do you give Hopkins much of a chance in that fight?

 

Our next question comes from Greg D. who asks:

 

Gerry, I’m not one for mythical match-ups, but one does intrigue me. Who do you think would win in a bout between Mayweather and Sugar Ray Leonard. Both are masterful boxers and both have beaten the best in their divisions, so who wins?

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

 

Our first question came from Jack G. who asked:

 

Gerry, it’s now official, Mayweather has chosen Andre Berto as his next opponent. Seeing as this is supposed to be his last fight, don’t you think he should’ve chosen a more challenging opponent, or do you think an easy fight is a fitting reward for a retiring Champion of Mayweather’s caliber?

 

Gerry feels that Mayweather could have chosen a better opponent. In fact, the fight that Gerry would have loved to see Mayweather square up against Golovkin.

 

Our Next question came from Richie S. who asked:

 

Gerry, as I watch fighters like Malignaggi and Chris Algieri, who have tremendous boxing skills, but little power, I wonder, is there something fighters like that can do to keep strong brawlers from rolling over them

 

Gerry stated that a boxer with very little power needs great footwork and needs to be able to throw 30 or more jabs per round to keep a brawler off.
