Ask Gerry Cooney – June 28th, 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 Joe Y. who asks:


Gerry, last week you said that Muhammed Ali called your mom before your fight with Holmes. Do you know what he said to her and would you share that with us?


Our next question comes from Johhny R. who asks:


Gerry, I’m curious. Bernard Hopkins aside, how does a fighter know when it’s time to retire. Some guys hang on for so long that it’s painful to watch, while others just quit. Why is that?
