Ask Gerry Cooney – August 31st , 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 Art F. who asks:


Gerry, how do you see the upcoming bout between WBO Welterweight Champion Jesse Vargas and Manny Pacquiao? Is “Pac-Man” too old and how much does retirement take out of a returning fighter? Does he beat Vargas or not?


Our next question comes from Victor G. who asks:


Gerry, Oscar De La Hoya recently said that he won’t wait past 2017 to make Gennady Golovkin / Saul Alvarez. That seems like an awfu long time to wait. Do you think this fight will ever be made?
