Default Re: Would Gerry Cooney be a Champ if he fought today?

Frankly, if he'd stayed at his best for two or three years, he would've almost certainly picked up one of the world titles during the Holmes era. It just wouldn't have been against Holmes, the true top dog. And if you put the best Cooney in there with quite an assortment of titlists he would've had some good odds to pick up a major world title at many points all the way up to your Maskaevs and Peters, at least.
