Re: Would Gerry Cooney be a Champ if he fought today?
The problem with the Cooney types is the rebuilding job on your hands when they lose. It's a massive rebuild project and they never do come back like they once were, do they?
He'd probably take out Povetkin, but I'm not sure about it. I think Haye is too quick on the outside and has much faster hands. The Klitschko's badly ko him.
How about the last decade and some other champs? I think Brewster gets him out of there in a slugfest. How about a guy like Oleg Maskaev? Or Rahman? Maybe Oleg out toughs him. Maybe Cooney blows him out in 2 rounds also. I think cooney bobmbs out Ruiz because Ruiz is a guy that walks in and Cooney catches him early with that left uppercut or lefthook and it would be all over.
