Ask Gerry Cooney – April 9th, 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:


Our first question comes from Gene C. who asks:


Gerry, as a fighter, what did you think of Andre Ward’s latest outing? I didn’t think that Barrera did much of anything, so I don’t consider that much of a test for Ward and personally, I think Kovalev destroys him! What do you think?

Our next question comes from Pat R. who asks:


Gerry, I know it’s been discussed, but I am just having a really hard time understanding what possible good Chris Algieri’s handlers think can come of putting him up against Errol Spence Jr. It just makes no sense to me. I mean Spence has 12 KO’s in 19 fights compared to Algieri’s 8 KO’s in 22 fights. How do they expect Algieri to keep Spence off of him with no power?


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


Our first question came from Ralph Y. who asked:


Gerry, next week we get Manny Pacquiao / Timothy Bradley III. I know a lot of talk has been made regarding the two trainers, but my question is this. Based on their recent performances, who do you think is going to win and why?

Although Gerry feels that the addition of Teddy Atlas to the Bradley camp is very beneficial to Bradley, he wonders if there is enough that Atlas can change about Bradley to offer a different result than the first two fights, bith of which Gerry feels Pacquiao won.

Our next question came from Timmy T. who asked:


Gerry, on April 9th, we get to see two unbeaten heavyweights face each other, Charles Martin and Anthony Joshua. I think this is going to be a fabulous fight and I’m looking forward to some great Heavyweight action. Tell me, who do you like in this one Gerry?

Like most everyone else, Gerry is very excited to see this fight take place. He does however feel that ultimately Joshua will prevail.
