Ask Gerry Cooney – July 20th, 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 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 Frankie D. who asks:


Gerry, like most other fans, I was very excited to see boxing return to free network TV. So, do you think it is helping the sport or do we need better fights?


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


Our first question came from Vinny G. who asked:


Hi Gerry, well it looks like Cotto / Alvarez is a go. Do you think Cotto is any match for the much younger Alvarez, or do you think it’s an easy night for Canelo?


Gerry sees this as a tough fight for both men, but feels that ultimately Cotto’s age will cause him to tire and Alvarez will take the later rounds and the decision.


Our next question came from John F. who asked:


Gerry, I have a question about the Bradley fight. When referee Pat Russell stood in front of Vargas, he waved off the fight. Whether he made a mistake or not, shouldn’t Vargas have been given the victory? Since when is there an “oops” call in boxing?


Both Gerry and Randy felt that Bradley dominated the entire fight and that it would have been much more unjust to give the victory to Vargas because Russell made a mistake.
