Ask Gerry Cooney – July 12th, 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, Channel 93 from 6-8 p.m.


Please submit your questions to:


Our first question comes from Tony R. who asks:


Gerry, If there is a rematch between Shawn Porter and Keith Thurman, do you see a different result if Porter makes some adjustments and if so, what do you think those adjustments need to be?


Our next question comes from Joe, who asks:


Gerry, why did you fall apart toward the end of your career, as evidenced by your losses to Holmes, Foreman and Spinks. Why did you look so weak in the end, after looking so strong earlier in your career?
