Ask Gerry Cooney – April 26th, 2016

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 Commission.


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


Please submit your questions to:

This next question comes from George B. who asks:


Gerry, this is not so much a question. I just want to congratulate you on being inducted into the New York Golden Gloves Hall of Fame! I’ve been a huge fan of yours for many years and I was very happy to hear that news. I know you don’t like to talk about all of the charity work that you do, but as a long-time fan of yourself and the sport of boxing, I just want to say thanks and congratulations again!



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


Our first question came from Sean S. who asked:


Hi Gerry, well it looks like Shawn Porter / Keith Thurman is back on for June. I love this fight and I think it’s going to be non-stop action from beginning to end. So, how do you see this one Gerry?

Gerry sees this much the same as most people, a rough and tumble “pick-em” fight. He expects a lot of action from start to finish.

Our next question came from Paul F. who asked:


Gerry, what did you think of the Pacquiao / Bradley fight? With all the hoop-di-la about Teddy Atlas training Bradley, I have to say that out of the three fights they’ve had, I thought this fight was Bradley’s worst performance. Do you agree?

Gerry thinks that Teddy did the best he could with Bradley. He feels that Bradley is not a young fighter and although you may be able to reach him a few new things, he’s pretty set in his ways.
